Actor and model Koena Mitra is the latest Bollywood celebrity to be a target of lewd misbehavior. The star of films such as Heyy Babyy and Apna Sapna Money Money received a string of obscene calls on her personal phone, which soon numbered to 40-50 such instances.

According to a report by Indian Express, Mitra registered a complaint with the Oshiwara police station, and was waiting for the authorities to take action.

Mid-day quoted a police officer as saying, “We have booked the caller under section 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of IPC and are investigating the case further.”

If media reports are anything to go by, the caller was abusive and also offered her money for a "night out".

While the 33-year old actor has been out of the limelight for some years now, she first came to public attention as a model and went on to appear in music videos as well as feature films.
