Mumbai: Model-actress Dipannita Sharma is likely to co-write a movie script on the fashion industry. She hopes the project changes the `perception` of people about the `one dimensional angle` of the industry.

`Modelling is what I owe my career to. And I feel the perception and portrayal of the industry of fashion as a whole has many a time been misrepresented or has been one dimensional in movies,` Dipannita, a former Miss India contestant.

`I have always toyed with the idea to write a script on this subject and I may soon be putting this into reality. I have a producer friend of mine who seeded this thought into my head and I am considering it,"` added the model-actress who featured in films like `Jodi Breakers` and `Ladies vs. Ricky Bahl`.

In the past, acclaimed filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar`s `Fashion` has explored the dark side of the fashion world.

Dipannita`s film is likely to be based on her experiences, her learning and what she calls is the real side of the fashion industry.

The idea, according to a source close to the actress, stemmed when a renowned publishing house approached Dipannita to pen a book on her life as a model. While the book is definitely a prospect Dipannita is pursuing, the movie, the source says, will be her first priority.
