When FASHION was announced, there were talks that it would include actual footage from the Fashion Weeks which happen in Paris. There were also speculations that Priyanka Chopra would be shooting for one of the key sequences on a Paris ramp. However, FASHION has released and there has been no such shoot abroad. What happened?

"It was just not becoming physically possible to shoot in Paris", says Madhur Bhandarkar in an honest tone, "Even though the team had gone to Paris for a recce, we couldn't get the logistics working. Moreover, it was a Himalayan task to actually shoot a sequence there on a Live show with Priyanka walking the ramp. We could have somehow managed it but for that we had to wait for a year. Of course, we couldn't have afforded to do that."

Some montages could have included in the film though, isn't it?

"It wasn't quite possible to go and shoot the whole thing there and we thought that it would be better to rather replicate the setting here in Mumbai itself. We could have got some pre–shot montages but we let it go since we managed to get an authentic job done by the talented crew at our disposal. In any case, the film has been accepted all over and that's what matters", shrugs Madhur.

That's indeed true, what with yet another experimental film of his getting critical as well as commercial acclaim.

"Well, I have always maintained that I am an experimental film maker whose movies also come with commercial viability. This way I am truly blessed", signs off Madhur.
