Turning up in two back to back Bengali films by a veteran director, East European model Dijana Dejanovic says she has no plans to shift base to Bollywood as of now.

"I have turned up in two Bengali films of Nitish Roy, who I know is a famous art director in Bollywood. I consider him as my mentor in films. So for any future plans regarding my film career I will always count on the words of Nitishda," Dejanovic, who turned up as an alien in Roy's last film Mahakash Kando said.

Apart from Mahakash Kando, the Croatian model, having turned up in some global ramp shows besides modelling stints in India, has acted in an important role in Roy's second feature film Jale Jangole, which was largely shot inside a forest in West Midnapores Chandrakona.

In Jale Jangole she essays the role of a researcher in the film based on a bunch of college kids and their fight for survival in the jungles against a crocodile, she said

"I had great fun shooting for both films and I picked up some Bengali words. I was not given much lines and it was more about giving proper expression. Besides Roy, I want to work with other Bengali directors, both seasoned and debutant ones but let them see how I perform first. Let the movies hit the screens," she said.

In Jale Jangole she is cast opposite Ashish Vidyarthi while she shares screen space with Victor Banerjee in Mahakash Kando. "I later knew they are such big names in Indian cinema. But they did not act starry with me before the camera," she said.

Dejanovic, who affirmed she liked juggling between films and modelling assignments in Kolkata and Mumbai, was speaking at a collection launch of international Italian brand for leather bags and accessories Blue & Blues here.
