Priyanka Chopra’s Fashion clocked 12 years on Thursday and the actress was overwhelmed with the huge success of the film. The actress went down memory lane and share a BTS throwback video from the making of the film and penned a heartfelt note on Instagram. In her long note, she revealed that in 2008, she was just about 5 years into her acting career through extreme highs and lows. She was told that taking on this movie could be a risk for her but the film turned out to be one of the best films of her career. The film also earned her the National Film Award for Best Actress.
Priyanka wrote that it was one of the most collaborative experiences of her life to working with “the brilliant” Madhur Bhandarkar and his incredible team of writers – Ajay Monga, Niranjan Iyengar, and Anuraadha Tewari – for almost 6 months before they even started the movie. Her note further read, “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.”
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.
