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.
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).
