|Madhur Bhandarkar's movie 'Fashion' chronicles a tale that brings to light the hitherto unseen shades of the fashion world. The film is about the rise and fall of a supermodel, and her subsequent resurrection.|
The movie stars Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut, Mugdha Godse, Arjan Bajwa, Arbaaz Khan, Kitu Gidwani, Sameer Soni, among others.
Priyanka Chopra as Meghna Mathur
A small town girl whose strength, determination, and feisty spirit inspires her to journey far from home. Meghna Mathur is an elusive combination of beauty and intelligence. She aspires to be a part of the fashion world. She knows that she has what it takes to become a supermodel and will pursue it to the ends of the earth.
Meghna also has the added advantage of in-built self esteem and a sense of morality and will not compromise on her dignity. But how can that attitude balance with her driving ambition to get to the top? Meghna will fall prey to the trappings of fame. Will she rise from the fall?
Kangana Ranaut as Shonali
Shonali Gujral is the reigning model on the runway and an icon for Meghna to aspire to. However, Shonali is also a victim of the choices she has made. She bears the consequences of a steep rise to fame and fortune.
Shonali is the poster child for glamour and for self-destruction. Famous, envied, lost and confused she is a prisoner in a world, which will be her ultimate downfall.
Mugdha Godse as Janet
Janet is the tough talking girl with a heart of gold, who becomes Meghna's best friend. A model who may not have reached the heights of Shonali and yet remains more carefree as she lives life by her own terms with no demons or regrets.
Anything goes with Janet. She seems like she has made a deal with life - 'You keep me alive and I'll walk about with a smile on my face.' But Janet has something the others who survive like her don't: She has a heart. She values the importance of a family. And she knows that you can find love in the strangest places.
Arbaaz Khan as Abhijit Sarin
A powerful business tycoon who owns one half of the fashion industry and extends influence over the other half, Sarin is the perfect example of when creativity meets commerce. Known as the man with the Midas touch, Sarin has nurtured many talented designers including Rahul Arora (Sameer Soni) and has the ability to be an image-maker. A business magnate who is used to getting his own way - he meets his match in the young Meghna Mathur.
Kitu Gidwani as Anisha Roy
A former beauty queen, Anisha Roy runs the most successful modeling agency in Mumbai - Profile - India's answer to Elite. She is a tough business woman who has a keen eye for spotting talent. Among the important regular clients are 'Panache' for whom she has discovered many talented models.
Arjan Bajwa as Maanav
As one of the thousands of talented hopefuls that travel to Mumbai hoping to make it big as a model in the industry, Maanav is one such aspirant. He befriends Meghna during their early days as struggling models and proves to be a loyal supporter throughout as their friendship blossoms. Despite temptations, Maanav has a strong set of values that will not allow him to take the quick and easy route to the top through compromise, a trait that Meghna comes to value.
Set against the glittering backdrop of the glamorous but ruthless world of haute couture, 'Fashion' tells the story of one small town girl with a dream and the determination to make it a reality.
Meghna Mathur knew that she was meant to be famous. Ever ambitious and bright with stars in her eyes, even as a girl with a conservative background, she dared to dream of bright lights and the big city. The world of fashion - the clothes, the colors, the make-up, all of these form a part of the fascinating world that Meghna has longed to be a part of.
She reaches the peak of her success and rises to walk the ramps for leading designers across India. The fashion world lies at her feet - the parties, the brand endorsements, the photographers, the models, the romance and of course - the shows, the shows, the shows!
However, karma catches up with Meghna as she slowly starts to pay the price for her fame and her journey to the top. Her attempt at a comeback was going to be a near impossibility but she was never a woman to turn away from a challenge.
"Fashion" explores the world of style through the emotional personal journey of the key people that make the industry, the dream-weavers of that elaborate world of glamour: the models, designers, photographers, businessmen, agencies etc.
In the world of image-makers is it possible to conquer it and remain true to yourself?
