It all began at ChandniBar, which led him to the Page3 circuit. After laying out Corporate rules and jamming Bollywood's TrafficSignal, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar is all set to take the industry by a Fashion storm.
Here are the excerpts from the interview:
After tackling serious issues in your movies, what got you interested in fashion?
Everything that relates to the fashion industry.
That you will see in the movie.
We've heard that the film deals with issues like casting couch and anorexia?
This is all news to me. <b1>
Is Kangana Ranaut's character based on the troubled model Geetanjali Nagpal?
Mujhse zyada meri picture ke baare main sab jaante hain! (More than me, people seem to know about my picture). I don't know where all this comes from. Kangana, like Priyanka (Chopra) and Mugdha (Godse) are playing models in the film.
Does Mugdha Godse's character bear a resemblance to model Carol Gracias and that infamous wardrobe malfunction?
(laughs) No, no. I don't think so. The only resemblance could be that like Carol, the character too is Catholic.
Did you visit the Fashion Weeks (Mumbai and Delhi) for inputs?
Yes, I did. But primarily, I wanted my art directors and cameramen to get a feel of the subject, ambience and lighting.
