‘Zameen Aasman Ka Fark Hai’: Meena Kumari’s Stepson REACTS Strongly to Sharmin Segal Calling the Pakeezah Actress’ ‘nothingness’ Her Inspiration for Heeramandi : Bollywood News – Bollywood Hungama

The legacy of legendary actress Meena Kumari continues to be a talking point. Sharmin Segal, star of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s series Heeramandi, has been criticised for her performance despite the overall success of the show. In an earlier interview, Sharmin mentioned Meena Kumari’s portrayal of ‘Nothing’ in the classic film Pakeezah as the inspiration for her character in Heeramandi. However, Meena Kumari’s stepson Tajdar Amrohi has strongly objected to this comparison.

‘Zameen aasman ka fark hai’: Meena Kumari’s stepson REACTS violently to Sharmin Segal calling the Pakeezah actress’ ‘nothingness’ her inspiration for Heeramandi

Speaking to Zoom TV, Amrohi claimed, “Zameen aasman ka fark hai between ‘Heeramandi’ and Pakeezah (There is a difference between heaven and earth). Do not compare the two. No one can Pakeezah be reborn. Neither Meena Kumari nor Kamal Amrohi can ever be reborn.”

He added, “I don’t want to say much about this as Bhansali is a big fan of my father Kamal Amrohi. In every film he makes, Bhansali tries to shoot in a very similar manner to how my father did it. Once he came to Kamalistan Studio and asked where my father used to sit, where my father walked. Out of great respect, he touched the floor on which my father sat. That was 15 years ago and after that I never met him again. I must say here that each of us has individual taste. All this is my opinion. There may be people who liked Heeramandi more than Pakeezah.”

He concluded by saying, “I don’t know Sharmin. But no, I don’t understand her statement about nothing.” For those who don’t know, Sharmin explained in an interview with ETimes, “Meena Kumari was one of my inspirations. I tried to make Meena Kumari’s nothing out of Pakeezah into my character in Heeramandi.

Set against the backdrop of India’s struggle for independence, the Netflix series explores the lives of courtesans in Heera Mandi, Lahore, during the pre-Partition era. The series features an all-star cast including Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditi Rao Hydari, and has been renewed for a second season.
