Bollywood actress and star of ABC’s “Quantico,” Priyanka Chopra, and Indian American actor Aziz Ansari are among the first group of presenters at this year’s Emmy Awards. The two join a star-studded cast of other presenters, including Anthony Anderson (“black-ish”), Taraji P. Henson (“Empire”), Larry David and James Cordon (“Late Late Show”).
Earlier this year, Chopra, who is hogging the limelight after her hit ABC drama, handed out a trophy at the prestigious Oscar ceremony. She also made heads turn with her red carpet looks, which included flaunting a stunning Zuhair Murad gown.
Ansari has also won his maiden Emmy nomination in the ‘Lead Actor in a Comedy Series’ category for his role in his hit comedy-drama TV series on Netflix, “Master of None.” The show and Ansari have secured other nominations: ‘Outstanding Comedy Series’; ‘Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series’; and ‘Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series.’
The 68th Emmy Awards will telecast live from The Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Sept. 18 (7:00 p.m. ET) on ABC hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
