It looks like Madhur Bhandarkar is determined to put the entire fashion industry into Fashion, his film about the beau monde, in one capacity or another. While models Lubna Adams and Achala Sachdev are doing the choreography, fashion queen Rita Dhody is looking after Priyanka Chopra's entire look.
Reveals Madhur, "I'm trying to rope in as many names from the fashion industry as possible to give Fashion an authentic look. Besides the names you've mentioned, Falguni & Shane Peacock, Wendell Rodricks, Narendra Kumar Ahmed and Anamika have designed the fashion shows in Fashion. Among the top models who have contributed are Noynika Chatterjee, Anchal Kumar, Binal Trivedi, Kavita Jairayat, Sucheta Sharma and Jesse Randhawa."
Karan Johar (playing himself) has already shot for Fashion as one of the front-row spectators in a ramp show featuring Priyanka and Kangna. And Manish Malhotra too will be making an appearance as himself.
Adds Madhur, "Even as the film's shooting nears completion (I've one more schedule to go), I'm still trying to rope in more dress designers and models to make appearances in Fashion. This isn't to cram the film with big names. My film is not just about glamour and fashion. It's an authentic look at the fashion industry. I want to bring in everyone who matters."
Even at the eleventh hour, Madhur is busy inviting some more of the who's who of the fashion industry. "By the time the film is completed, I want everyone from the fashion industry to be in my film," grins Madhur.
