Bollywood’s original Saki girl, Koena Mitra has been missing from the silver for quite a considerable time now. But the actress who will now be seen in one of the biggest reality shows of Indian television, Bigg Boss 13 say’s she had her own reasons for not taking up films over the past few years.
As opposed to the generic mindset that the industry is a mean bad place, Koena feels that the Bollywood industry is a very warm and giving place. In her recent interview to Bombay Times, the actress said, “The film industry is extremely kind and welcoming, and never stopped offering me work. I may not have taken something up because of creative disagreements or quality of work.”
While the actress was asked if taking up Bigg Boss was her way of starting her second innings in the industry, Koena was quick to say, “First of all, that’s not a plan as I will do it anyways. ‘Bigg Boss’ will help me reach out to and connect with a wider audience, who may never go to a theatre to watch a film. I have worked with big banners, however, I have not had dignified or exciting offers in recent times.”
The actress further added she refuses to do sex comedies because she does not want to remain an eye candy or do anything vulgar or indecent. The Musaafir actress further said, “I have been offered many sex comedies, but I don’t see myself standing with a carrot, a lauki or a baingan on a poster (laughs!). The idea isn’t just to be seen on screen or hoardings.”
