Could you imagine our sultry beauty Koena Mitra shouting on the top of her voice to tell that she was a girl and nobody believing her?
And not only this, she was even dragged to men's loo, with her pleads to go to girls' loo unheard.
Well, if you thought this sequence is a part of the gal's latest film, think again, as the hottie herself narrates this interesting tale: "This incident took place on my first day at school. As a kid, I used to dress up like a boy as my father loved me that way. I was a little cautious about my look that day. Then, I felt the need to attend the loo and asked a caretaker lady to take me to the washroom.That was when the gal's real trial began, as much to the surprise and embarrassment of Koena, the lady took her to boys' loo.
Recalls she, "I cried and told her that I don’t want to go to the boys loo because I am a girl. I shouted on the top of my voice but it seemed that my clothes fitted on me so perfectly that she refused to believe my pleadings."
If this was not enough, the caretaker further dragged Koena and she was compelled to use boys' loo. "She dragged me to the boys' loo and I was forced to use that. I was feeling too awkward to share the experience with any of my classmates."
Obviously humiliated by this incident, Koena reported this incident to her mother and resolved never to wear boyish clothes again in school. "The next day, I put on a beautiful frock, hair clips and even bangles so there is no confusion about my gender."
Fast forward to present, Koena Mitra still loves to sport informal men's wear off the work. Jeans, T-shirts, sneakers and other such clothes make comfortable wear for her. But yes, she's now extra cautious not to visit man's loo even by mistake.
