Bollywood star Katrina Kaif averted a wardrobe malfunction at an awards function on Sunday night, reports Mumbai newspaper Mid Day.
Stylist Anahita Shroff saved the day by fixing Katrina's wardrobe malfunction by getting it stiched in the nick of time.
Katrina told Mid Day: “When I was waiting backstage to receive my award, one of my friends stepped on it, and to my utter shock, it ripped right up to my thigh! For the first time I really freaked out, as the organisers kept telling me it was time to go on stage. I asked my friend to go fetch a needle and thread to sew up the tear but the poor girl was so nervous that her hands kept shaking and the stitching was crooked."
It was then that Katrina decided to take matters in her own hands. "I asked for Anahita, who had done Kareena and my styling for the event to come and help me. I was panicking by then! Anaita asked me to stay calm and within five minutes stitched it up so finely that I couldn't see the tear. Then I walked on to the stage to get my award. Normally this kind of thing hasn't happened to me before, because we are always prepared at shows. My hairdresser or other backups are always there to help out."
Asked whether it was not the same gown that she had worn to an awards event in January, Katrina admitted: "Yes it was the same one I had worn a few months back. It's one of my favorite gowns as I love the color red. I am glad I wore it as most of the actresses who came to the event — Lara, Aishwarya and Malaika were all attired in various shades of red like pink or maroon."
At the awards event, Kareena and Katrina, met like long-lost friends. They hugged and kissed each other and Kat exchanged pleasantries.
