Koena Mitra who is one of the contestants in the 13th season of Bigg Boss admits to being the most difficult human being. 

"See, I am the most difficult human I know (laughs). I don't know who is going to be more difficult but I know that this show isn't easy," she said in an interview to IANS.

While many would find domestic chores challenging, she says her only challenge is to adjust with complete strangers. "Housework is no challenge for me. My challenge would be living in this house with many strangers. I don't know who they are and I don't know them either. When I see them, I don't think I will find a friend there because I haven't heard from any friend or anybody (known to me) who are going for this show."

The 35-year-old actress-model also things that being a contestant on Bigg Boss will help her fans know her better as a person. "A lot of people don't watch cinema. They can't afford movie tickets, they can't go to theatres to watch cinema, they are not on social media. How do you reach out to those people as an artist? I thought this is going to be a great platform where they will see the person, know the personality. They have seen me in different characters, they have seen me as a model, they have watched my films and interviews but on this show, they will see the person that I am. I thought it is going to be a great opportunity to reach out to them," she said while clarifying that she can't be looking perfect all the time. 

"Fans see you on hoardings, posters, on the screen with perfect makeup, perfect hair, perfect clothes etc. Perfection is such a hunger! Especially when it comes to actors and stars, they always expect perfection. I just hope people don't expect perfection day and night, it is not possible. When you are cooking in the kitchen, you can't be having curled and perfect hair. I will have to look simple, I'll be the way I am at home," she added. 

In another interview, she also spoke about undergoing plastic surgery that went wrong. “This is the worst-kept story of our industry. Many have done it and many do it, but no one talks about it, as if it’s a crime or a sin. It’s a part of my story, so I didn’t mind talking about it. I gave statements and that’s why yeh peecha nahi chhodta (it doesn't leave me). Even though it’s been eight-nine years since, people don’t stop asking me about it. Also, why are only women trapped and attacked when it comes to cosmetic enhancement? You are fine with 60 and 50-year-old men from our industry with no wrinkles and head full of hair looking like they have returned to their 20s!” she told an entertainment daily. 

The Kolkata-born actress is also planning to turn producer and revealed that she has received some really nice scripts and is eager to produce both movies and web series once she is done with the reality show.
