Bollywood director Madhur Bhandarkar is making a sequel to his National Film Award-winning film Fashion! This bit of information was revealed by film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh, who said on Twitter, “Madhur Bhandarkar planning #Fashion2 in mid-2016. Will be a love triangle. Fresh subject. One top actress to be finalized soon.” Fashion is an acclaimed film starring Priyanka Chopra in the lead role and Kangana Ranaut in an important second lead. Both actresses won the National Award for the film.
Wonder which actress Madhur Bhandarkar will rope in for Fashion 2! Will it be the spunky Priyanka Chopra again, who is high on the success of Bajirao Mastani, Quantico, Dil Dhadakne Do and Mary Kom? Or will it be the Queen Kangana Ranaut?
Madhur, who has been honoured with many National Awards for his work, mostly makes films that are branded as realistic. Starting from Chandni Bar (starring Tabu) to Page 3 (Konkona Sen Sharma), Corporate (Bipasha Basu),Traffic Signal (Kunal Khemu, Neetu Chandar), Jail (Neil Nitin Mukesh), Fashion (Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut) and Heroine (Kareena Kapoor). His last outing Calendar Girls was in the same genre and did not do well at the box office. He also made films like Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji, Aan Men at Work, Satta and Trishakti, which did were flops.
Hopefully, Madhur will break his dry spell with Fashion 2. However, the director himself has not announced the film on Twitter or through a statement yet. But if it’s indeed a love triangle, we are excited to know the three leading stars. Watch this space for more on Fashion 2.
