To be co-hosted by the bubbly Parineeti Chopra and witty Riteish Deshmukh, the main event -- where talent will be felicitated based on audience voting -- is likely to be full of quirky gags.

Parineeti is totally gung-ho about hosting the UAE city, and told IANS: "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."
