With Priyanka Chopra being chosen as the guest of honour at the annual award function of the Tourism Ministry, speculations are rife as to whether this dusky beauty is about to replace ace actor, Aamir Khan, as the brand ambassador of Tourism India. For those who are confused we will elaborate.
PRIYANKA CHOPRA AND AAMIR KHAN
Actor Aamir Khan has long been the face behind many tourism advertisements promoting India as a favourite tourist destination, like Incredible India and especially 'Atithi Devo Bhava', and has reportedly worked for Tourism Ministry without any fee. But according to Delhi based media reports this year's award function, which is to be held at a five star hotel in New Delhi on Monday, will see Priyanka Chopra as its guest of honour. Lok Sabha speaker Meira Kumar will give away more than eighty awards in various areas of excellence in tourism.
Our sources add that Harinder Sikka, a big name in the Indian corporate world, and an avid golfer is said to be the man behind this development and so some are also speculating as to whether Tourism Ministry's Golf Tourism dream (much like Medical Tourism etc) is about to take off with Priyanka Chopra leading from the front as it's brand ambassador.
As for now, let's wait for the official announcement.
