'Lion' actress Priyanka Bose, who had accused filmmaker Sajid Khan of sexual misconduct when the #MeToo movement was at its peak in India, says speaking out made her feel free.

Did life change for her in any way after she came out about her unsavoury experience with Sajid?

Priyanka told IANS: "Oh, I am over it. It better has changed for him. We are surrounded by perpetrators. My speaking out frees me, other people chose not to. It's a choice one takes. I felt judged and humiliated, and I don't at all anymore."

The actress, who has been balancing her Indian and international projects, recently featured in the H&M Conscious Collection Spring campaign 2019. It explores the healing power of nature, while also embracing innovation with sustainable materials and processes for a more sustainable fashion-future.

In her day-to-day life, Priyanka says she supports sustainability by not buying junk anymore.

"I shop vintage a lot. There's no looking down on things that can have a second life. I try and incorporate sustainable fashion as a part of my daily life. When H&M contacted me, I was seriously going through a process where a lot of my things had no value after a point and I was like, 'Okay, where does it go now?', I really needed information about how I could stop being a big buyer and more mindful of waste so I started looking into it a lot. Which meant this campaign was such a good fit."

On the work front, she is looking forward to some projects reaching fruition.

One is Prakash Jha's next film 'Pareeksha', which is around the education system.

" 'Pareeksha' is a film about a parent's dream and struggle to educate their son in an English medium school," Priyanka said.

There's also 'The Odds', directed by Megha Ramaswamy. The series, which brought down the curtains on the International Film Festival of Los Angeles recently, is a coming-of-age tale about two teens who skip school on an important exam day and go on a fantastical journey in Mumbai. It also features Abhay Deol.
