The actor recently sat in conversation with Bollywood Hungama where he was asked about the rounds and rounds of criticism submerging Heeramandi. In his response, Shekhar said, “Lot of stupid people are fussing and obsessing over it, talking about it and questioning the historical accuracy and authenticity and chronology, but Bhansali Saab is known for his dystopian sagas.”

Continuing to hail Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Suman said that the filmmaker is known for the world that he creates and is a master craftsman. The actor said that SLB creates his own world that is cinema and neither the cinema should be questioned nor its interpretation should be questioned because that’s ‘his point of view’.

Shekhar added, “Take it or leave it. If you start dissecting it… He hasn’t made a documentary on Heeramandi. He has just taken a cue from there.”

In the same conversation, the Manav Hatya actor shared, “Padosi mulk ke kuch log hain who are feeling very jealous about the fact ki inhone kyu bana dia? Bhai aap bana lete and why are you even discussing our Heeramandi?” Shekhar said that Indians don’t discuss their films nor do we know whether they make films or not.
