Heeramandi’s Jason Shah revealed he felt ‘out of place’ on SLB’s set for THIS reason

Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar had been grabbing all the eyeballs even before its release. And now, over a month later, just as the show’s fever seemed to be fading away, the makers have ramped up the excitement yet again by announcing Season 2.

All the actors in the show have been praising the sets and director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. However, one actor has openly spoken about the stressful environment on the sets. Jason Shah revealed how the set lacked basic niceties of human nature.

Talking to NDTV, Jason Shah, who played the role of a cartwright in Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar, stated that he found the set to be lacking simple niceties of human nature. He wasn’t introduced to many people, which he found very odd and a little confusing.

The actor further added that he thought, since he plays the villain, the makers wanted him to be angry and a little disconnected from everybody. “But for me, being connected to a human being on set never boils over into my character. I definitely felt a little bit out of place, but I guess you just keep on going with the flow of things,” he added.

Jason Shah in the same interview stated that he was sitting in one of the rooms in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s office with the script in his hand. That is when the director came in and started looking into his cupboard. He then looked at Jason and said a very silent ‘hi’.


Jason said that it was later that he realized SLB had come to see him and to check if the guy he chose would be able to play the role or not.
