Zee Cine Awards 2013: Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmukh have the audience in splits

The Bluffmaster actors were at their humorous best and enthralled the audience with their pranks on fellow B-town friends… was anybody hurt or upset? Find out…

The Zee Cine Awards 2013 which began with the grand AV announcement that Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmukh would be co-hosting the show, had actors like Anil Kapoor, Vidya Balan, Farah Khan, Sajid Khan and Prabhu Deva amongst others laugh their hearts out. The two super funny hosts of the evening did a stupendous job and engulfed the audience with their witty one-liners and to some extent what we call… toilet humour!

After accepting the award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Bol Bachchan, AB Junior looked at the audience with a straight face and said, “Trust me, this was not part of my contract with Zee TV!” In another instance, both AB and RD made fun of Varun Dhawan and Ayushmann Khurrana’s dance steps as they were in the midst of the show rehearsals. Not only this, they didn’t even spare Anushka Sharma who was trying to perfect her steps for the awards night. The two hosts felt bad for the new generation of actors like Varun and Ayushmann for not taking dancing lessons from them! “Yeh aaj kal ke bachche humse kuch seekhna hi nahin chahte. Kaun samjhaye inko?” joked Riteish. So without wasting time, Ranbir Kapoor touched Abhishek Bachchan’s feet to take his blessings and addressed him as ‘sir’ when he appeared on stage to present an award. But Abhishek being Abhishek threw a bouncer at Ranbir saying, “Tujhe toh main Ayushmann (hinting at Ayushmann Khurrana) bhava ka aashirwaad bhi nahin de sakta.”

Riteish was no less! As Sujoy Ghosh was walking down the stage ecstatically after receiving the award for the Best Director Jury (Kahaani), Riteish joked, “Sujoy ne toh Siddharth (Roy Kapur) ke pehle hi Vidya Balan ko pregnant kar diya… after a brief pause came, film mein!

This is not even one fourth of what you all are going to witness on January 20th when the most popular Viewer’s Choice Awards unfolds. Stay clued in for more updates on ZCA 2013, and yeah, don’t forget to share your take on Abhishek and Riteish’s chemistry!
