Adhyayan Suman talks about auditioning for Heeramandi 

Adhyayan Suman revealed that he was with his parents celebrating their anniversary when he got a call for Heeramandi. He said, "An actor had to be always prepared. I was in middle of the mountains for my parents anniversary. I had a very little network and the casting director called me and asked me to self shoot an audition and share it as early as possible. I didn’t believe at first when she told me that its for Heeramandi. I somehow managed to send the audition and there was a complete silence for around two months."

The series is based on the concept by Moin Beg. Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar is created and directed by Bhansali. He also serves as a producer on the show.
