Pallavi Sharda plays the character of Gulabo in her upcoming film, Begum Jaan, also starring Vidya Balan.

Actor Pallavi Sharda is content with the way her career is shaping up in the industry. Even though she has done a few projects in Australia , both films and TV, Bollywood remains her focus right now. About how she plans to balance work in Australia and India, she shares, “I think till date, I have maintained a very good balance between both the industries, and I would continue to do so in future as well. But I must confess that my heart lies in Bollywood. Bollywood is definitely my priority,” says Pallavi who is busy shooting for an Australian TV series.

The actor who is busy shooting for an Australian TV series, is happy with her journey so far, and feels that the industry has been good to her.

“ Coming from outside India, it’s not easy to find a foothold in the here and then making it solely on your own also adds to the struggle. But I’ve been trying to do that, and I am happy with the work that I’ve done so far and whatever I will do in future. I am looking forward to do more interesting films,” says Pallavi.

The actor’s last two Bollywood films, Besharam (2013) and Hawaizaada (2015) failed to make a mark at the box-office but Pallavi is not deterred by this, and is gearing for her next release. “As an actor, the journey and effort that I put in, are more important than anything else. Box-office result never bogs me down. Rather, I prefer working harder. I am still trying to find my niche in Bollywood. There’s competition in every field and Bollywood is a very saturated place, so I think longevity in the industry can be maintained only if you have quality and the tenacity to move ahead.”
