Parineeti finds TOIFA co-host Riteish Deshmukh 'funniest person'Mar 16, 2016 IANS
New Delhi: Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra, who is prepping to co-host the second edition of the Times of India Film Awards (TOIFA) along with actor Riteish Deshmukh later this week, says she loves how funny and impromptu he is as a person.
"Riteish is an amazing host, but I have also been hosting (shows) a lot. Actually I have hosted more than I have performed (at events). I have done a couple of segments for random shows with Riteish, but this time I am hosting a whole lot of the show," Parineeti told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
Excited about the TOIFA experience, which will happen in Dubai, the 27-year-old said: "Riteish is one of the most impromptu, funniest and genuine person. So I think we will have a great time and a lot of fun on stage."
The "Ishaqzaade" actress says she and Riteish have decided on the gags, but have not got a chance to sit together and practice.
In fact, just on Sunday, Parineeti was in Dubai for The Global Teacher Prize event, where teachers from around the world were being honoured. But she had to return to India due to some work. For TOIFA, she will be flying back to Dubai on March 17, in time for the gala the next day.
"It is always fun to do shows in Dubai because there are so many Indians there. Every time we go there for a show, we have a great experience," she said.
