It seems, Koena Mitra is finally our of the singles club. The actress was spotted with a new man at the Filmfare award function.
According to sources the guy's name is Mett Merral and he is a Turkish pilot. A source informs that the couple met a couple of months before through common friends at a Mumbai show and have been inseparable since.
The source further informs that whenever Mett comes to Mumbai, Koena drops everything to be with him.
Koena admits, "Yes, Mett is a very sweet and dear friend. I don't have too many phirang friends. He wanted to come to the awards night with me and after the Oscars, people abroad are more curious to know what happens here. Mett found the show amusing and beautiful with all the naach-gaana though he didn't understand a word of Hindi. We couldn't watch the entire event as I wasn't feeling well, and he had to fly back. Mett dropped me off at home and went to the airport."
However, Koena says that they are just close friends right now. "All I can say right now, is that we are very close friends. Mett and I meet as often as we can whenever he's in Mumbai. He's very charming and good-looking and our friendship is very special to me. It's too early to say anything more."
