Bollywood is riding high on the success of the sequels. The commercial viability of the same propels the filmmakers to adopt the strategy of sequels. As Madhur Bhandarkar's Fashion clocked 10 years of its release, Bhandarkar announced his plans to make a sequel of the film.

About the same, Bhandarkar revealed to a leading daily, "I have the concept of Fashion 2 ready with me. There are quite a few stories that I have in mind, all inspired from the real world. I always make films based on real life stories that are relevant to the society. So I won't be shifting focus this time either but it's at a very nascent stage and we will start developing the story and script sometime soon."

Adding further, he said, "Making sequels never interested me. I want my films to end on a positive and triumphant note. Many a time, I have been asked why didn't I make sequels to Chandni Bar, Page 3 or Corporate and I had told them that I never felt the need to. As far as Fashion is concerned, I had been thinking about the other stories related to the world. The film was initially three hours and 10 minutes long and I had to chop it down to two hours and 35 minutes. So there are several stories from the world that still need to be told."

When asked to comment about the casting of Fashion, he said, "All my actors contributed to the film and did more than what was expected of them. Priyanka, Kangana and Mugdha, at times would deliver so well in front of the camera that it would amaze everyone. Now that the film turns 10, I am recalling all the memories. While we were shooting the film, it was really difficult for me to direct the fashion shows. At times, it was emotional to shoot certain scenes, like the one where Priyanka walks the ramp even after being informed that her friend, Kangana, is no more, or the scene where Kangana is walking the ramp confidently even after being hit black and blue by her boyfriend."
