In the film, she is said to be playing the role of a model coordinator and turns out to be an integral part of the plot. Interestingly, her presence in the film has been a closely guarded secret and was kept under the wraps for almost a year since the film came on floors.
"How did this come to your notice; there was not much being spoken about this part. Let this be a surprise element," exclaims Madhur Bhandarkar, director of Fashion, who was caught by surprise when queried about Chitrashi's presence in the film.
After being prodded further, Madhur agreed to divulge about her role. "Chitrashi plays a model coordinator in the film. She approached me when work on Fashion had begun and expressed that she wanted to work with me. I did tell her that the part where she would have fitted in was important but not too lengthy. However, she agreed since she wanted to be a part of Fashion."
Talking about the length of her role in the film, Madhur remarks that she would be seen in four scenes. However, each of them is integral to the film's plot. "She had made a terrific impression in just these four scenes. Yet again, she is a firebrand in Fashion and doesn't mince any word. I have liked the way she has approached her character and made it look so convincing and real," says Madhur.
Starring Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut and Mugdha Godse in the lead, Fashion is all set to hit the screens on 29th October. Other Diwali release to arrive on the same day is Golmaal Returns.
