Koena Mitra goes gaga over night with Nelly Furtado in India
For Koena Mitra, it was a night to remember and cherish.

Koena, still sweating it out to find a foothold in Bollywood, is all agog about her New Year’s Eve performance with celebrated Canadian singer Nelly Furtado.

Says a jubilant Koena: “It was a night I'd never forget. It wasn't just the best live show I've performed in, but the best live show I've ever seen.”

Even many hours after she finished performing with Nelly Furtado, renowned music composer A R Rahman, Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapur, Koena can’t stop raving about her experience at the Andheri Sports Complex.

Koena goes on: “For four hours, the young crowds were on their feet. I had never performed in front of a standing crowd before. Normally, when you've a seated crowd you could end up with the worst deal... audiences eating, or worse, drinking, as you perform. For once, the crowds were totally with us. All of us – Nelly, Priyanka, Shahid, Rahmanji and me – felt so alive. There was no room to get tired. The audiences’ enthusiasm just kept our energy level going.”

Koena’s medley of all her hit songs was followed by a joint act with Priyanka. “At the end, we were all invited by Rahmanji on stage to bring in 2007 at midnight. We all sang ‘Humma humma’ (from ‘Bombay’) to bring in the New Year. Really, it was four hours of undiluted fun. I can't think of a better way to bring in the New Year.”

After the show, it would seem, Koena was all sapped.“I just came home and kept watching clippings of our show on television. The next few days, I’m just chilling at home visiting friends and shopping.”
