Priyanka Chopra steps into Shahrukh Khan’s shoes!

The Exotic babe has not shied away from aping actors on stage, she even did a Dabangg act at an awards recently, but PeeCee is now officially stepping into SRK’s shoes

Priyanka Chopra is the brand new host of 59th Filmfare awards, who has had Shahrukh Khan play the witty host for several years now. Priyanka will be accompanied by her Barfi! co-star Ranbir Kapoor on stage. The duo who will co-host this year’s popular award show are excited and even shot a promo for the same recently. PC however feels that she has big expectations to live up to, at the award’s press conference the Gunday actor said, “Shahrukh, Saif, Ranbir, Imran, so many people have hosted the show and they have always set the standard. So, it becomes little scary and there is a pressure. Logically, the pressure applies on Ranbir. But I have been working very hard to make sure it will be lot of fun.”

The actor also added, “Filmfare awards is an experience in itself. This is the first time that I will be co-hosting the awards, I am very nervous. I have not done it much, but Ranbir and I have been working very hard to make sure it will be lot of fun to show you the future of what we think cinema should be, which will obviously be a little mad and lots of fun. So, it’s going to be a really exciting time. Very few girls have hosted the awards. But yes, there is a huge pressure because Filmfare as an event has always been entertaining, funny and there has been a standard set by a lot of people, including Ranbir himself.”

Considering that RK Jr has already hosted the show once and Priyanka herself is quite spontaneous and fun we are certainly looking forward to some entertaining, fun moments on stage. We hope this duo brings their on screen chemistry on stage too.

As for PeeCee, good luck gal it’s not easy to step into the SRK‘s shoes or then match his act, but we’re sure Don‘s junglee billi will manage to hold the stage, hai na BollywoodLifers?
