The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is all set to honour Priyanka Chopra a day before it kicks off in September.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the 35-year-old ‘Desi’ girl will be the guest of honour at the fundraiser event on September 6.

The funds raised from the TIFF gala will help fund talent development programmes at the Canadian festival to get more women behind and in front of the camera.

For its 42nd edition, the stylish event at Bell Lightbox will feature Chopra in conversation with festival artistic director Cameron Bailey.

Toronto will also be honouring Priyanka for her activism of devoting time to UNICEF as a goodwill ambassador and the Priyanka Chopra Foundation for Health and Education.

The Quantico star recently made her Hollywood debut with Baywatch. In the past, she has brought her Bollywood flicks like Mary Kom in 2014 and What’s Your Raashee? in 2009 to the Toronto festival.

The main event is set to run from September 7.
