Ramesh Sippy's wife Kiran Juneja committed an embarrassing faux pas at an award function, which was held in Mumbai on Friday night. Juneja, who is often seen attending award shows and parties, had a Miss Universe 2015 moment when she announced the wrong winner's name.
Juneja was a presenter at Star Screen Awards 2016 and was asked to give the award to the Best Story of 2015. Salman Khan's "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" and Ranveer Singh's "Bajirao Mastani" among others were competing for the award. So when Juneja came on stage to give the award she announced that the Best Story award goes to "Bajirao Mastani".
However, Juneja realised her mistake, corrected it and announced "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" as the winner after a while, according to BollywoodLife.com.
Well, this is not the first time a presenter has goofed up with the winner's name. In December, Anu Malik created confusion when he called "Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2" actress Nushrat Bharucha Nishant Bhandari. Nushrat received the Most Entertaining Actor In A Comedy Role at Big Star Entertainment Awards 2015.
When Anu said, 'And the award for the most entertaining actor in a comedy role goes to... Nishant Bhandari', there was a silence at the venue. It was director Luv Ranjan, who quickly went on stage, and corrected Anu's mistake.
"The show organisers also walked up to Anu and pointed out the error. He then announced Nushrat's name. It happened, perhaps, because he was not wearing his reading glasses," Mid-Day quoted a source as saying.
