Mumbai:  Koena Mitra is preparing herself for her Hollywood debut titled ‘Story of Naomi’ where she plays the central character, a woman who romances both the sexes.

Ask her what took her so long to get a break and she replies, "I spent a lot of time on my accent classes and other training. Unlike India, the west lays a lot of stress on dubbing and other technical aspects."

Producer Michael Hirshenson explains why he chose Mitra, “Discipline and hard work can take her places. It all depends on how much Koena is ready to learn."

Koena remains tightlipped, adding, "I can't really talk much about the storyline. But I don't mind dating any one on screen as long as they are good-looking."

Directed by fashion photographer Ash Gupta and produced by Michael Hirshenson (Harry Met Sally, Princess Bride), the film stars Koena and Kevin Sorbo (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys).
