Bengali actress Koena Mitra, who shot to fame with the song KhullamKhulla in the film Road, is now busy with her forthcoming film Apna Sapna Money Money produced by Subhash Ghai.
The film has an ensemble star cast in which every character has a different story that lures him to acquire money by various means, reports Bollywood Trade.
"ApnaSapna Money Money is a multi-starrer comedy film where everyone has a story of their own. Everybody is running after money for different reasons - good and bad - ranging from poverty to other personal needs. It's no family drama and the climax is basically about how these money-driven characters meet each other," says Koena.
Like every other actor, Koena too has her list of dreams and wishes
The film revolves around each one's obsession with money, which sure is very important, considering today's scenario of ever-increasing price rise.
"Money means a lot to me, it is extremely important and one cannot do without it. However it is not the 'be all and end all' of life. There are quite a few things that money cannot buy, like luck," states Koena.
Asked about her sapna (dream) in real life she says, "I'm a workaholic and I want to be very successful in everything I do. I want the audience to see my films and appreciate my hard work."
Like every other actor, she too has her list of dreams and wishes.
"I have this endless wish list. I want directors to experiment with me. I want to play unusual characters. I want to do action, thrillers, comedy and I'd love to do a typical girl-guy college-romantic flick," says the Bengali lass.
The actress adds that she looks at every minute detail before signing a film?
"I believe a combination of everything right from the directors, producers, co-stars and a good script to the camera-man matter a lot. Also, it has to be a well-known producer, as the film needs to be sold properly. The cameraman is equally important as he is the one to shoot you from different angles."
According to her, she plays a very interesting character in her other forthcoming film Anamika - The Untold Story too. She says it's a great script with diverse characters but she cannot disclose anything more now.
