Hope things change after I attend the Oscars: Priyanka
Actor Priyanka Bose (above) says good roles seldom come her way in Bollywood. The LSD: Love, Sex Aur Dhokha (2010) actor feels that it’s high time the industry opens its doors to artists like her. However, she is hopeful that the Oscars, which she will be attending at the end of this month for her film Lion, will open more avenues for her.
“For someone like me who has grown up watching Hindi films, working in them is like living your dream. I still remember how after watching Sridevi in Chaalbaaz (1989), I wanted to play the same role. But sadly, good roles don’t come my way often. The two factors that work against me are that I’m neither a model nor do I belong to any film family. I think actors like us should be judged by our talent and nothing else. And you never know, things may change after the Oscars,” smiles Priyanka.
The actor says ‘artists belong to the whole world’. “I’m open to every role that gets the best out of me. Language doesn’t matter. I’m ready to go wherever my work takes me, ” she adds.
Coming from a Bengali background, she’s keen to do Bengali films. Her last film was Goutam Ghose’s Shunyo Awnko: Act Zero. “I didn’t get any amazing offers after Shunyo Awnko. I’d love to work with Prosenjit (Chatterjee). We’ve discussed about it. He isn’t just a superb actor but also a humble and helpful person,” she says adding that the world of fashion interests her and she would love to explore it soon.
