Priyanka Chopra Jonas walked down the memory lane as her 2008 film Fashion completed 12 years. The actress, who completed 20 years in the film and fashion  industry this year, had won a National Award for her incredible performance in the Madhur Bhandarkar directorial. 

Sharing a video of the making of Fashion, Priyanka wrote on Instagram, “#20in2020. 12 years to #Fashion. It was 2008. I was just about 5 years into my acting career and had already seen extreme highs and extreme lows in it. I was told taking on this movie could be a risk. But working with the brilliant Madhur Bhandarkar and his incredible team of writers, Ajay Monga, Niranjan Iyengar and Anuraadha Tewari, for almost 6 months before we even started the movie, was one of the most collaborative experiences of my life.”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

12 years to #Fashion It was 2008. I was just about 5 years into my acting career and had already seen extreme highs and extreme lows in it. I was told taking on this movie could be a risk. But working with the brilliant Madhur Bhandarkar and his incredible team of writers, Ajay Monga, Niranjan Iyengar and Anuraadha Tewari, for almost 6 months before we even started the movie, was one of the most collaborative experiences of my life. Then on set, bringing life into all the various shades of my character Meghna Mathur, was one of my first truly immersive acting jobs. Thank you to the incredible cast that made everything I did much better. Thank you to the amazing technicians and crew, who through all the craziness, always brought it home. And most importantly, thank you to the audience who went to theatres to watch what was then billed as a ‘female-centric’ movie and made it a huge success which in turn helped showcase that women could hold their own at the box office. #Jalwa Thank you all for remembering this piece of work with such fondness. #20in2020 @imbhandarkar @kanganaranaut @mugdhagodse @iarjanbajwa #arbaazkhanofficial, @rohitroy500 @samirsoni123 @iamkitugidwani @rajbabbarmp @kiranjoneja @themonga @ashesinwind #AnuraadhaTewari #ronniescrewvala @ritadhody @salimmerchant @sulaiman.merchant #12YearsOfFashion

Priyanka also thanked the audience for turning up in huge numbers and proving that a film led by women could work at the box office. “And most importantly, thank you to the audience who went to theatres to watch what was then billed as a ‘female-centric’ movie and made it a huge success which in turn helped showcase that women could hold their own at the box office. #Jalwa,” she wrote, adding, “Thank you all for remembering this piece of work with such fondness. #20in2020.”

Fashion was a story of a small-town girl who wanted to make it big in the fashion industry. Priyanka played the lead role of Meghna Mathur in the film. The film also starred Arbaaz Khan, Kangana Ranaut, Arjun Bajwa and Mugdha Godse in important roles.
