Amitabh Bachchan honoured with Lata Deenanath Mangeshkar Award

Legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan has been honored with the prestigious Lata Deenanath Mangeshkar Award for his contribution to Indian cinema. The award, named after the iconic playback singer Lata Mangeshkar’s father, Deenanath Mangeshkar, is a symbol of recognition for outstanding achievements in the field of arts and culture.

He said, “He (Hridyanath) even invited me for this ceremony last year. Hridyanath ji, I apologise to you for last time. I had then told you I was unwell. I was healthy but didn’t want to come here. This year I had no excuse, so I had to come here.”

In a heartfelt victory speech, Bachchan humbly expressed his gratitude for being bestowed with such a prestigious honor. He revealed that he had never considered himself ‘worthy’ of receiving the award, emphasising his deep respect and admiration for the Mangeshkar family and their legacy in the world of music.

The Lata Deenanath Mangeshkar Award serves as a fitting tribute to Bachchan’s illustrious career and his enduring impact on Indian cinema.
