Forget National Award, Ranveer Singh to be honoured with 'Pandit Dinanath Mangeshkar Award'

Ranveer Singh's winning streak continues! The wonders that Sanjay Leela Bhansali's BAJIRAO MASTANI has done for actor Ranveer Singh is beyond imagination. Though Ranveer couldn't bag the most coveted National Award for his commendable performance in BAJIRAO MASTANI, he is still being showered with some prestigious awards and winning appreciation all across.
After having swept all the major award functions last year for his performance in BAJIRAO MASTANI and earning accolades for Zoya Akhtar's DIL DHADAKNE DO, now Ranveer will be honored with the prestigious ‘Pandit Dinanath Mangeshkar Award.
To honour the timeless legacy of Pandit Dinanath Mangeshkar, music legend Lata Mangeshkar and her siblings organize a unique recognition for artistes who have created great impact. She said, “Ranveer is a very good actor and seems to be a very positive human being. He spreads happiness wherever he goes. We are happy to give this annual award, named after our father, to Ranveer.”
Since Ranveer Singh is away shooting for Aditya Chopra's upcoming film BEFIKRE in Paris for a four-month long schedule, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali whom he also considers as his mentor has graciously agreed to receive the award on his behalf.
Despite a crazy and hectic schedule and with luminaries like Lata Mangeshkar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali part of the ceremony, the actor is trying his best to squeeze out time and be part of the event virtually.
Ranveer Singh also happens to be one of the youngest recipients of the prestigious award.
