Priyanka Bose makes her debut at the Academy Awards this year for her film, Lion that also stars Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman.

No doubt Priyanka Bose is super excited to attend the Oscars this year for her film, Lion. The actor will be walking the red carpet in a sustainable gown, to be designed by British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood. The actor plans to fly down to London on February 15 to make sure everything falls in place.

“Emma Roberts and I am the face of a campaign that Vivienne Westwood is associated with. It’s called Red Carpet Green Dress, which is like wearing sustainable gown on the red carpet. I totally support the cause. A couple of other stylists are also on board to give us an interesting look for the day,” says Priyanka. The sustainable fashion design campaign is intended at raising awareness about the impact of fashion on the planet.

Ask her more about the gown and the Guzaarish actor shares, “I really don’t know much about the colour and cut. I am just ready for a surprise. (Smiles) I guess it will be a wonderful Westwood signature Oscar red carpet gown and I am totally excited about it. That’s the reason I will be reaching early so that we talk through the entire process.”

Priyanka is looking forward to uniting with the entire team of Lion and is anxious about her debut appearance. “Lion has everything in it to win this year. The story about despair, hope, love and human perseverance connects well with all,” she adds.

So whom does she want to bump into at the ceremony and Priyanka laughs before adding, “Oh there are so many of them. I am openly crushing on the lead actor of Moonlight. I totally loved the film. I also want to exchange pleasantries with Barry Jenkins (director of Moonlight). If I get to work with him then there is nothing like it. I would also like to say hello to Lupita Nyong’o. Emma Stone is also one of my favourites. I enjoyed watching her in La La Land. And the list goes on.”
