Koena Mitra became an overnight sensation with her appearance in Saki Saki song with Sanjay Dutt from Musafir. She made it to the headlines following the reports of her undergoing cosmetic surgery to enhance her facial looks. Incidentally, she has scaled great heights but, things were not the same for the sex siren of Bollywood.
She recently revealed that she was tortured for nearly 3 years by the media and industry people after she underwent plastic surgery. She stressed that the negative articles were written about her and even the film fraternity distanced themselves from her, which affected her acting career.
Speaking to Aaj Tak, Koena said, “I agree that nepotism and groupism exist in the film industry. I have faced all kinds of behaviour. There was a time when I got a big break, despite being an outsider. On the other hand, when I need them the most, no one from the industry stood up for me. I will always have this complaint against the industry that they did not speak for me openly”.
She further added, "When I came here, I did not know that one must not speak about one's surgery. Someone asked me, and I talked about my surgery. Soon after that, it felt like the entire world came after me. I was tortured for my surgery for three long years. Constantly, the media ran negative news items about me. Many people from the industry also distanced themselves from me at the time and it also affected my work. I feel like laughing because people would advise me to stay strong, but not support me in front of the media."
As many already know, Koean underwent a correction surgery - rhinoplasty and made headlines for multiple reasons. In a recent interview with Zoom, Koean said that everybody thought something was wrong but in fact the wrong thing was her body's reaction to the surgery.
