A Global Conversation

In a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, Suman acknowledged the show's international reach. "People all over the world are talking about Heeramandi," he stated, mentioning positive reactions from his friends in America and London.

Questioning Artistic Interpretation

Suman addressed the critiques, particularly those concerning historical accuracy.  He defended Bhansali's creative freedom, arguing, "Cinema should not be questioned. Interpretation should not be questioned." He asserted that Bhansali's established style is known for creating elaborate fictional worlds. "He's a master craftsman," Suman said. "He creates his own world and that's cinema."

Taking Inspiration, not Making a Documentary

Suman clarified that Heeramandi is not a historical documentary but rather a fictionalized take on a bygone era. "He's just taken a cue from [Heeramandi] and made a beautiful series," he explained.  "This is the way he has imagined the characters to be and added his bit to it."

A Touch of Patriotism

Suman concluded his remarks with a touch of patriotism, referring to criticism from Pakistan. "Some people from the neighboring country are feeling jealous...Why are you even discussing OUR Heeramandi? We don't discuss your films," he stated.
