Actresses have a short shelf life, especially, in Bollywood. So it doesn't come as a surprise when actresses have to mull over at other lucrative avenues like production or shifting to Hollywood, etc. The dearth of roles led many leading ladies of B-town like Lara Dutta, Dia Mirza, Sushmita Sen, Juhi Chawla, Pooja Bhatt, Shilpa Shetty, Ameesha Patel (probable), etc opt for other varied options.

The dusky beauty Koena Mitra, who is well known for her outspoken persona, well agrees with this fact.

Koena says candidly, "When you're in glamour industry you have a very short span of life. You love your work. Because of passion and habit of working no one likes to sit idle. You want something or other happening around. So it is quite natural for actresses looking out for other work."

Koena too has an eye over taking up production. However, her plans are much different to what her contemporaries have done. Also, she wants to go at her own pace.

"I do have my future plans for entering production. But it's going to be little different from what others have done," says the no-nonsense actress.

Meanwhile the feisty actress, Koena's entire focus is on her Hollywood project STORY OF NAOMI, which is set to release later this year in US. 'I am definitely looking forward to take up production but right now my entire focus is on my debut Hollywood film. Only after the release I'll think of anything,' signs off Koena
