Tajdar Amrohi said that the acting of Sharmin and Meena Kumari cannot be compared. There is a lot of difference between the two. Tajdar Amrohi seemed unhappy with Sharmin Segal being compared to the acting of Choti Maa Meena Kumari. Sharmin Segal was trolled a lot for her acting in the series 'Heeramandi'. There was no change in Sharmin Segal's face or expressions in any scene, due to which she remained the target of people. Then Sharmin Sehgal had said that the way Meena Kumari acted without any expressions in 'Pakeezah', 'Pakeezah' was based on the courtesans of Lucknow, and Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar is based on the red light area of ​​the Mandi of the same name in Lahore.

'Don't compare, no one can make 'Pakeezah' again'

But Tajdar Amrohi does not consider it right to compare Sharmin Sehgal's acting with Choti Maa Meena Kumari. Talking to 'Zoom', he said, 'I do not know Sharmin. But no, I cannot agree with her statement that there is nothing. There is a lot of difference between 'Heeramandi' and 'Pakeezah'. Do not compare the two. No one can make 'Pakeezah' again. Neither Meena Kumari nor Kamal Amrohi can be born again.'

Tajdar Amrohi further told how much Sanjay Leela Bhansali respected his father Kamal Amrohi. When asked if there is any similarity between 'Heeramandi' and 'Pakeezah', he said, 'I don't want to talk about this because Bhansali has been a big fan of my father Kamal Amrohi. In every film of his, Bhansali tries to take shots in the same way as my father used to do. 15 years ago when Bhansali came to Kamalistan Studio, he touched the place where my father used to sit.'
