Abhishek Bachchan to host ZEE Cine Awards

Abhishek Bachchan and Ritiesh Deshmukh have been confirmed as the hosts for this weekend’s ZEE Cine Awards, which take place at the Yash Raj Studios in Mumbai.

Talking about his role, Bachchan said, “I۪m very happy to be a part of ZEE Cine Awards (ZCA) this year. I۪m going to be hosting the show along with my friend and brother, Riteish Deshmukh this time. After nearly 15 years, ZEE Cine Awards is returning to Mumbai and our effort will be to make it entertaining for the audiences worldwide. We make films for our audiences. Without their love and support we are truly nothing. And that is the core of ZEE Cine Awards. The audiences have appreciated Riteish and me together in films, I hope they like our pairing at ZCA also because we are really working hard for it.”

Deshmukh added, “Abhi and I are going to be hosting an award function for the very first time together. Thanks to ZEE Cine Awards for giving us this opportunity. It is a huge responsibility that ZEE has bestowed on us and we hope to entertain our audiences to the hilt. The platform of ZEE is huge and it reaches millions of audiences across the globe. Viewers Choice is a demographic representation and we respect the choice of our audiences. This is the year۪s biggest awards show…so audience, tayyar ho jayiye_kyunki hum kamar kas ke tayaari kar rahe hain…”

The ZEE Cine Awards will be telecast on ZEE TV later this month.
