The grand celebrations of IIFA Awards 2023 have begun in full swing at Yas Islands Abu Dhabi. This year, IIFA will take place on May 26 and May 27. The event began with a press conference where the IIFA Rocks hosts for this year’s edition, Farah Khan and RajKummar Rao, indulged in some fun banter.
RajKummar Rao touches Farah Khan’s feet at IIFA press conference
Since it’s the first time for RajKummar Rao hosting IIFA, he was asked some burning questions prior to the event. One of those questions was what would he do if his co-host Farah hogs all his lines. The actor was asked to repeat the answer that he gave to them, on stage.
Giving a quirky answer, RajKummar said, “I must have said that it’s great of course. She is such a senior host, actor we all love. So, main to chahta hun wo sari lines le lein. Main khud hi de deta hun saari lines. (I want that she takes all the lines. I will myself give her all my lines).” While giving this quippy answer, RajKummar even touched Farah’s feet and that just made the moment all the more fun.
Abhishek Bachchan gets jealous of Farah’s ‘new baby’
When asked about her IIFA experience and coming back to the awards for a second year straight, Farah said, ” It’s wonderful that I am back here with Raj. We are very good friends. He is, like Abhishek says, ‘My new baby’.” After saying that, Farah teasingly asked Abhishek, who was in the audience, ‘jealous much?’ Junior Bachchan also gave a witty reply in sync with the situation. This whole fun banter just increased the excitement for the main night.
