Believe it or not but Madhur Bhandarkar is not the first person to have made FASHION. That's because in Bollywood itself, a film by the same title has already been made and that too close to 50 years back. The film had starred Pradeep Kumar, Manoj Kumar and Mala Sinha in the lead and was released in 1957.

However, are there any similarities between the Pradeep Kumar starrer and the 2008 flick which stars Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut and Mugdha Godse in the lead?

"You must be kidding me", says a source attached to the film, "How can you really expect anything at all to be similar between the two films? Nothing in the plotline of the two films converge. Also, we are talking about a film which tells the tale of the underbelly of today's fashion world."

1957 release FASHION was directed by Lekhraj Bhakri who had also made films like RAJPUT, NAQAB, HONEYMOON and BANARASI THUG.

"Yes, we are aware about that", continues to source, "However, FASHION which was made 50 years back was set in a social genre and dealt with a different subject altogether. Except for the title, there is nothing common to be talked about here."

The Madhur Bhandarkar film takes the expose route and also stars Arbaaz Khan and Arjan Bajwa along with Sameer Soni. A co-production of UTV Motion Pictures and Bhandarkar Entertainment, FASHION is all set to arrive on 17th October. Though the film was earlier supposed to arrive in the month of November, the release of FASHION has been preponed. It is widely believed that the reason for this was to avoid clash with DOSTANA which releases in the month of November and also stars Priyanka Chopra.
