In Bollywood, Koena Mitra has made her own place with diverse kind of films. Now, as the Bong beauty is stepping into a new phase in her career with four new movies that she is all set to begin work on, she has developed another strong aspiration.

Considering the fact that Koena is a trained dancer, she is now looking forward to be an integral part of a dance musical film.

“Oh, I am so much waiting for a musical to happen to me”, says Koena with high hope in her voice. “Ever since I was a 3 year old kid, I started taking training in dance. I have been trained in four different kinds of dance forms and have extensively worked with Mamta Shankar’s dance troupe. I have learnt Indian ballet classical as well as a contemporary dance form. Also, while street hip-hop is something which is getting popular today, I have been doing it since childhood”, adds the actress.

It comes as a surprise indeed because although she started her career with a special song and dance routine in ‘Khullam Khulla Pyaar Kare’ (Road), she has seen gained popularity with a sizzling act in films like Musafir, Apna Sapna Money Money and Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena.

“I know, it is ironical since I do come with a very strong background in dancing”, she smiles. Koena continues, “Unfortunately in Bollywood we don’t have culture of a dance musical film. I guess the last true dance musical film was Dil To Paagal Hai. On the other hand, in Hollywood, there are so many musicals being made.”

She doesn’t have any complains about her journey so far though.

“See, all my directors and producers have given me so many wonderful songs. However, at times you do feel that you could have given so much more. You do bite your nails and feel that if there is an opportunity that comes your way, you could do so much more. I do pray to God for that moment to arrive because I have that kind of strength to do justice to such films. There is so much variety that I have to offer”, she assures.

Well, given the confidence that Koena is carrying and a desire to do something different in the world of films, she could well throw a surprise in weeks to come.
