The Mangeshkar family has been celebrating Pandit Hridaynath Mangeshkar's birthday for the last 24 years and since the past three years, they have started the tradition of honouring the stalwarts from the industry. While the first and second awards were given to Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle, this year it was bestowed upon megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

While Big B was to be conferred with the award by Lata Mangeshkar herself, due to her ill health she gave the event a miss and thus the honours were done by the Showman of Bollywood, filmmaker Subhash Ghai.

The award ceremony was followed by a musical concert, where singers Sunidhi Chauhan, Shaan, Mahalaxmi Iyer, Sudesh Bhosle gave tribute to both Bachchan and Lata Mangeshkar.

An elated Big B also posted about the honour on the micro-blogging site, ''And then a truly proud moment ... a reward at the hands of the Nightingale Lata Mangeshkar ji for my contribution to cinema. A historic moment because they were felicitating 71 years of my life which coincided with 71 years of Lata ji's entry into film music and song. After a wait Lata ji called and excused herself from the function because she had suddenly taken ill. But ... the very thought of sharing the stage with her and then to receive this recognition from her hands, was in itself the greatest reward.

An honour beyond all else. The traditional head wear of respect, the shawl of reverence and the garland of flowers, along with the priests from SiddhiVinayak and their chants, to the glittering tray replicating the temple and 71 'modaks' the religiosity of its temperament on a beautifully decorated tray, were all filled with an emotion difficult to describe ...''
