Actress Priyanka Bose, whose film "Lion" was widely lauded,
says credits in Bollywood have not been epic for her yet.
"I don't think I am entirely satisfied with what I have at the moment, so I am willing to push a little bit harder," Priyanka told IANS when asked if her journey as an actor has been appreciated more in the west than in her homeland.
"You know, whether I am paid my dues or not, it's not something I now want to focus on. I just want to give my best. It is one life. I don't want to put thought into where I am getting appreciated. Of course where the time is going to take me, I am going to take it with full aplomb," she added.
Does she think she has been given due credit in Bollywood?
"Credits have not been so epic. I would love (to take) more responsibility in Bollywood for sure. I am meeting a lot of people. They appreciate my work and my love for what I do and so it's only about time," she said here on the sideline of Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Spring-Summer 2018.
Priyanka is currently balancing her time between her international and Indian projects.
"I am trying to buy my time between Hollywood and here, season by season. I am doing meetings in Los Angeles and there are a couple of offers and I said yes to all of them," she said.
At LFW, she walked for label Bloni by Akshat Bansal during the Gen Next show. The label made a remarkable impact on the ramp with his all black/white menswear and women's wear collection. It was a line inspired by snow clad mountains and science of nature.
Bansal highlighted the plight of nature with his collection 'Mourning of the Marine Life'. Using his inspiration creatively, he brought a deconstructed mix of linen, delicate Japanese lace and the amazing sustainable fabrics made from 100 per cent regenerated marine plastic waste that would often cause havoc in landfills or oceans.
On her fashion statements, Priyanka said: "I don't follow trends and no, I don't always follow comfort because if I like a good pair of stiletto, I will go with that if it is going well with the look. I also have a pair of chappals in my bag, so comfort is always two hands for me.
"But it's not something I will go with all the time."
