The mega-stars announced ZEE Cine Awards 2023 and walked down memory lane, sharing some of their fondest memories from the previous editions of the awards show.

Alia Bhatt said, “ZEE Cine Awards is an awards ceremony that the film fraternity eagerly looks forward to year after year, and I am honored that I have the privilege to announce its 2023 edition. It has been a while since I performed live on stage, and hence, that makes this performance even more exciting for me. 2022 has been special in so many ways, and I can’t wait to have a blast on stage to all my hit songs. Super thrilled to be performing live at ZEE Cine Awards, and it will be a special performance that all the audiences will absolutely love!”
