Bollywood's “no-panty” stunts
Strangely, some malfunctions are done intentionally by the actors to grab publicity.
Lately, one of the famous wardrobe malfunction, raising eyeballs, is making public appearance, sans the essential garment, panty.
Total Filmy brings you some of the well-known pantyless stunts by the B-town actresses:
1. Shamita Shetty:
Shamita Shetty, sister of gorgeous Shilpa Shetty, made headlines in 2007, when she was spotted sans her panty at a huge Bollywood event.
Shamita began her Bollywood career in 2000 with 'Mohabbatein', and later, shot to fame for her performance on the raunchy item tracks, 'Sharara Sharara' from 'Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai' (2001) and 'Chori Pe Chori' from 'Saathiya' (2002).
In 2005, Shamita featured in 'Zeher', along with Emraan Hashmi, which was a hit. Still, the actress was in a dire need of a good film to make her mark in the industry.
Shamita's fashion faux pax hogged the limelight as many felt that the actress was trying to imitate Hollywood pop-star Britney Spears, who was then caught partying without the essential inner-wear.
Speculations were on that the wardrobe malfunction was intentional, and even the pictures depicted that it was an obvious one.
2. Yana Gupta:
This model-turned-actress could not escape shutterbugs when she attended a charity function in November, 2010, organized by Childreach International, donning a black short dress, without her panty.
Palpably, the 31-year-old actress laughed at the fashion disaster, and called herself as the “no-panty girl” on the micro-blogging site, Twitter.
However, Yana and the photographer who clicked Yana's pantyless pictures, were sued by a social activist from Lucknow.
Though Yana called the complete incident unintentional, sources alleged that it was done to gain publicity.
Post this stunt, scuttlebutt had it that Yana was approached for a crore deal to pose nude for a UK based men's magazine.
3. Neetu Chandra:
The 'Garam Masala' hottie, Neetu Chandra was recetly reported to be pantyless at an event.
Reportedly, the rumors were rubbished by the actress.
Later, her publicist clarified that they have got an apology from the website, which alleged that Neetu was trying to imitate Yana to gain cheap publicity.
The 26-year-old actress is currently busy working on a Tamil flick, 'Aadhi Bhagavan'.
What came as a surprise of late is that Bollywood's well-known actress Sonali Bendre was spotted pantyless at Karan Johar's MNIK bash.
The actress, who donned a short black mini dress, came at the event with her sister-in-law Shristi Arya and the Bachchan bahu, Aishwarya.
Palpably, no pictures have been stored depicting the actress in a pantyless stint, but certain sources are alleging it to be true.
Acknowledging Sonali's Bollywood career, such cheap things are not expected from a renowned actress like her.
Sonali is currently married to director-cum-producer, Goldie Behl, and is a mother to a son.
