Priyanka Chopra to felicitate Amitabh Bachchan at an awards ceremony

The Barfi! actor who is an ardent fan of the sadi ka mahanayak also announced herself as the superstar’s brand ambassador. Wonder why?

The New Year has indeed started on a very good note for Priyanka Chopra, what with the star continuing to sweep away all the awards for her performance in Barfi!, and also garnering positive reviews for her first international album as a singer.

But if you think this is it, hold on, Piggy Chops has more reasons to smile. It’s learnt that she is all set to felicitate none other than superstar Amitabh Bachchan at an event which is slated to be held tomorrow. The self-confessed Bachchan fan feels that it’s a great honour to present him with an award. The actor-singer is excitedly looking forward to the D-day when she’ll be sharing the stage with her favourite actor. “I am Amitabh Bachchan’s brand ambassador and this should be in my contract. Now I can’t play his iconic character Vijay, so I am being his heroine in a film,” said Priyanka expressing her fondness for the Man of the Millennium.

Not many know that one of the reasons she agreed to do some of the iconic films like Don, Don 2, Agneepath and now Apoorva Lakhia’s Zanjeer is that they are all remakes of Bachchan’s films. After presenting the award to the eight deserving directors of the Rs 100 crore club at this year’s Zee Cine Awards, we are sure she must be equally delighted to bag another prestigious opportunity to present an award to her most favourite Bollywood actor.
