Koena Mitra was once considered the sex siren of Bollywood all thanks to her exotic dance numbers and unmatched sex appeal. Her appearance in Saki Saki song with Sanjay Dutt from Musafir had made her an overnight star. She also made headlines when she had undergone cosmetic surgery to enhance her facial looks. She started looking different and people began wondering whether her surgery has gone wrong. But Koena has now clarified that her surgery didn't go wrong but her body reacted to the surgery differently.
"Nothing went wrong. A lot of people go after things without investigation. I was also 12 years younger back then. So I did invest well in how my body will react to it. So, rhinoplasty is not a big thing. It is a common thing and you can go and check with doctors. They will tell your four percent professionals do it - from different jobs and professions. They don't have to be actors only," Koena told Zoom in an interview.
"A body can react differently. I had bone swelling on my face. When you see a fractured leg, it takes 6 months just to fix the bone and then happens leg numbness and swelling. Recovery takes almost a year and half," she added.
Talking about the details of how her body reacted to the surgery, Koena said, "So, my case was similar. My cheekbones were affected. In fact, my cheekbones were swollen. There was water collection on my face. Because of that everything looked awkward, everything looked weird. Everyone thought something has gone wrong. But the wrong thing was my body's reaction to that surgery. The surgery wasn't wrong. It was basic. It wasn't a major implant surgery. It was a correction surgery. It was a correcting surgery but my body reacted like that. It was my first experience so I didn't know how my body would react."
Koena was a part of Bigg Boss 13. On the work front, Koena is planning to turn producer. She revealed that she has received some really nice scripts and is eager to produce both movies and web series once she is done with the reality show.
