Their much-anticipated sequel, Don 2, hits theatres on December 23. And almost a month later, on January 21, Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra will co-host the Zee Cine Awards 2012 at The Venetian in Macau. It is the first time that both actors will be hosting a gala together. Shah Rukh has only partnered with Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor before this.
Earlier, buzz was that Saif and his actor-girlfriend Kareena Kapoor may host the event. Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma, too were apparently being considered. But Mohan Gopinath, business head, Zee Cinema, confirms that it’s going to be the Don and his
(wild cat): “Zee Cine Awards has come up with many firsts. Last year, we got together Akshay Kumar and Sajid Khan. I’m sure Shah Rukh and Priyanka will be fantastic.”
Last year, at the event in Singapore, Priyanka had taken on six different avatars to spoof the nominations for the Best Film award. And Shah Rukh had taught Hrithik Roshan the ‘the true art of loving one’s wife’ by dragging the shy Sussane on to stage and getting him to publicly declare his adoration for her. Both had the audience on their feet with their acts. Says, Punit Geonka, MD and CEO, Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd., “ Shah Rukh has been part of all our 13 ceremonies so far.” The awards will be aired on Zee TV on February 5.
