At the awards event held on Sunday night, one-time foes, Kareena and Katrina, met like long-lost friends. They hugged and kissed each other and Kat exchanged pleasantaries. That wasn’t all. They even shared a stylist, Anahita Shroff, who saved the day by fixing Kat’s wardrobe malfunction at the event.
Katrina says, “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 organizers 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! Anahita 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.” Wasn’t this the same gown Katrina had worn to an awards event in January? Kat admits, “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.”Kaif got the Woman of the Year award – an award also received previously by Jennifer Anniston in USA as given out by the same men’s magazine.
