The 31-year old actress told, “Filmfare awards is an experience in itself. This is the first time that I will be co-hosting the awards, I am very nervous.
“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.”
The two star hosts will portray the future of Indian cinema in a unique segment of the ceremony.
“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,” added Chopra.
The ‘In My City’ singer also said that, as she takes over the mantle of host from the likes of Shah Rukh Khan and Saif Ali Khan, she has a lot to live up to and is feeling the pressure.
“Whether it is Shah Rukh, Saif, Ranbir, Imran… so many people who have hosted the show, they have always set the standard. So, it is scary and exciting.”
Chopra recently commented that she was disappointed to lose out on the Best Actress Filmfare award last year to Vidya Balan.
The 59th edition of the Filmfare awards will be held on January 24 at Yash Raj Films studio.
