Bollywood's promising new actress Parineeti Chopra was left nearly teary-eyed at a recent media event when her 'too-tight' designer dress ditched her to bits.

At the special screening of Bela Sehgal's film "Shirin Farhad Ki to Nikal Padi" on Thursday, Chopra made a dazzling entry, donned in a stunning bright orange knee length dress. However, the allure lasted for merely seconds as the actress soon realized that she had suffered a wardrobe malfunction.

Incidentally, the dress was too tightt to fit her frame and thus led to a small slit. However, this London returned management graduate smartly managed the situation before it could have gone worse.

"Parineeti had donned a rather taut coral dress which seemed to be too snug for her frame. But as soon as she realized that her dress had developed a runaway tear near the zip," she did what any sensible girl would have done - run for cover before it got any worse," an eye witness told The Times of India.

Though she made a quick exit, her 'oops' moment was caught by the lensman present there.

Ever since she shot to fame with her first film "Ladies VS Ricky Bahl" she has been under constant media scrutiny.

The actress has lost considerable weight post her first release, but it seems she is yet to get some more grooming tips from cousin Priyanka Chopra.

Such wardrobe disasters are a common affair in Bollywood and high-profile events.

Recently, former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen suffered an even more embarrassing wardrobe disorder at a press conference, when her underpants gave a sneak peak from her ultra short tube dress as she sat with her legs uncrossed.

Though she tried to cover up her modesty by crossing her long legs, scores of paparazzi present at the event had already captured her awkward pose. Sen's embarrassing pictures made rounds on social media sites for several days.

Parineeti and Sen are not the only ones to have endured such embarrassments. Several B-town beauties have gone through the same, with the most popular being actress Yana Gupta's "pantyless" wardrobe malfunction, which till date is said to be the worst case of such disaster.
