The sizzle factor is high when it comes to Koena Mitra, who is a Gladrag’s winner, a ballet dancer, and actress, and former model who appears in Indian Bollywood movies.
Koena Mitra, the Bengali bombshell who hails from Kolkata is a lethal combination of beauty with brains. Despite being a major in psychology she knew that her svelte figure, her chiseled features and her striking beauty were perfect weapons to make a mark in the fashion industry.
Koena Mitra was born on 7th January 1979, in Kolkata.
Mitra is of Bengali origin. Her father is Ranjit Mallick, a business man and a Chartered Accountant and her mother is a teacher & interior designer. Mitra also has a younger sister.
Koena Mitra attended South Point High School in Calcutta. She went to college at Lady Brabourne College in Calcutta. Mitra was trained with the Mamata Shankar ballet troupe for 12 years. She was a super model and has walked the ramp in places like Milan, Paris, New York etc.
She also played basketball, tennis and participated in swimming during her college days. She always wanted to be an athlete.
While in college, Mitra pursued a career in modeling. In 2002, she won the Gladrags’ Mega Model Contest. She took the modeling world by storm by winning the Supermodel title and later on went on to become the semi-finalist of Miss Intercontinental.

Sangeeth Sivan’s Apna Sapna Money Money (2006) was a flop. In the hit movie Heyy Baby (2007), she appeared in a song sequence. Anant Mahadevan’s Anamika (2008), which was a remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca, failed to do well. It also starred Minissha Lamba and Dino Morea.
In 2009, she will be seen in an item number in a Tamil movie Ayan which stars Surya and Tamanna Bhatia.
She is one the sexy and hot actress in bollywood. she dont feels shame when she acts hot scenes in film. she says that exposing is one the part of acting in the film. she had many affairs with bollywood stars.
This hot Bengali actress is another example of a talented actress who just can’t find her way to the top the bollywood ladder. Koena Mitra has all it takes to make it to the top but all she needs is a couple of solid roles preferably in a few off beat movies to get noticed again. She has the figure, the dancing skills, the persona and acting skills that are needed, but to be honest to her she has got too many good offers. Whatever little came her way she did it with her utmost honesty.
