When Mid Day asked Koena that what took her so long to make a come back, she replied, “I spent a lot of time on my accent classes and other training. Unlike India, the West lays a lot of stress on dubbing and other technical aspects."
The producer of the film Michael Hirshenson explains her reasoning behind his choosing Mitra, “She looks international and her discipline and hard work can take her places. It all depends on how much she's ready to learn."
Without revealing much about her character in the film, Koena just told that she doesn't mind dating any one on-screen as long as they are good looking. The film is being directed by fashion photographer Ash Gupta and stars Koena and Kevin Sorbo (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys).
Bollywood actress Koena Mitra is all set to make her Hollywood debut in a film Story of Naomi. In the film Koena plays the central character who will be seen romantically involved with both a man and a woman.
