Who is Priyanka Bose?
Well, to simplify everything and not get anyone into a vast nature of this question, I will say I am many things and a sum of my parts. Every bit a work in progress. I’m the good and bad of my ancestral lineage and I’m finally on a path of deep self discovery. So the question who I am is a lot of work. It’s the sometimes messy and it’s sometimes sorted and most times it feels like life.
I’m in the middle of balancing life and work in different parts of the world.
My current project is an ongoing series headlined by Rosamund Pike called the Wheel of time on Amazon prime where I play the character Alanna Mosvani.
I work a lot in India and for most of the aspiring times, I’ve done all kinds of films here, over genres creating a niche for myself.
Mostly typical to the Indian film industry and its nature to tell different stories from the milieu. But LION headlined by Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman Directed by Garth Davies was one my breakthrough work from here.
That opened up more opportunities outside of India.
The other Indian films waiting to release here are:
– Agra by Kanu Bahl
– The lady killer by Ajay Bahl
– Pahahdon mien by Raam Reddy
I also did a film called Gangor – by Italo Spinelli an Italian director which released in Italy and had huge gala and premier at the Rome international Film Festival.
That was a good reminder for me to keep at it and not give up. And I’ve come a long way as an actor. Considering I’ve not had any access in the industry and otherwise I can truly say I am proud of this journey this far.
I started my career as an actor , when I had a baby
I was already 29 years old and many people told me many things. That it was too late. Women get thrown of shelves after a certain age in the entertainment industry and that believing I could do it and defy that would require immense amount of strength and determination and network.
I have had determination and desire to go deeper in craft but I am in my 40’s and just about learning the art of understanding what networking should feel like.
As a woman in my 40’s I think I’ve only just scratched the surface and I have a long way to go.
I’m more hungrier for sure, I feel the world has opened up for someone like me and I’m not afraid for the world to let and help me evolve. I want better scripts for women in thier 40’s.
I think something really cool , less frivolous and deeper and sexier happens to us after we are 37 or something. We are able to endure more silences and have deeper intuitions and become creatures of a certain discipline that helps in the discomfort of the ageing narrative, I’m in the process of defying that in ever way possible.
I’m determined to be felt very deeply by many generations.
And cinema helps.
