Fork a specific release in new branch

is it possible to fork a specific release code in new branch instead of downloading .zip or .tar file and then pushing that code to the new branch?

Eg. The project have a current version number 2.5 and  I want to fork on version number 1.5 which I have already released. is it possible to create a fork on version 1.5 in new branch? 

The releases are simply a tagged commit, so do you want to create a fork on a tagged commit? You can fork and clone the repository then checkout on the release you want and create a branch from that.
