The events of the ‘fashion’ world really happened
Madhur Bhandarkar had created many such scenes in the film which had happened in the fashion world, such as the top of the model walking on the ramp fell. Let us tell you that this idea was taken by Madhur from an incident of Fashion Week that actually happened. During a fashion week, the case of wardrobe malfunction with the famous Indian model Carol Gracia Shelter on the ramp came into the limelight. Not only this, a supermodel named Geetanjali Nagpal was found on the streets of Delhi in the same situation as Kangana’s role. Geetanjali, who once sparked the fashion world, was found in a mentally ill condition. This matter was heavily featured in the newspaper. However, this scene of Kangana was later removed from the film. Kangana played this role in such a way that she had come in more limelight than Priyanka.

Kangana had become a fan of Priyanka
Actually, Kangana Ranaut played the role of a model whose career is on the slopes and she becomes addicted to drugs. Kangana breathed her life in a small role. However, working with Priyanka was a big deal for Kangana. In an interview given to the media, I was told that ‘I was only 19 years old when I did this film and Priyanka Chopra was Miss World and a big star. Priyanka may have been a big star but she never treated me like a junior. She was very friendly during the shooting of the film, also shared her lunch and used to take advice on small things like how I am looking, how is my dress..etc..etc’.
