Salman Khan offended by Riteish Deshmukh’s praise of Maniesh Paul’s hosting skills at IIFA 2022: ‘I host from time to time as well’

During the IIFA 2022 press conference being held Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, Salman Khan took exception to Riteish Deshmukh’s praise of Maniesh Paul’s hosting skills. Deshmukh had said, “Maniesh, I just want to say, you are the best thing that’s happened to hosting, period.”

Salman looked nonplussed and appeared to point to himself, as though wondering whether Riteish forgot him. Then Deshmukh said, “Maneish, I want to tell you, you are the best thing that’s happened to hosting, ever. Period,” again leaving Salman confused and surprised.

Then Deshmukh laughed devilishly and side-hugged Salman and said, “Sorry, galti ho gaya (mistake happened)”. To which Salman responded, “I forgot myself, that I host from time to time as well.”

Salman and Riteish are hosting the ceremony this year together. Salman said at the press conference, “Bohot hi lamba rishta raha hai IIFA aur mere (I have had a long relationship with IIFA).”
