Aamir was quoted saying in a leading daily as, “This is a huge honour for me, director Nitesh Tiwari and the entire team of DANGAL. I am very thankful to Lata Mangeshkar and Deenanath Mangeshkar Trust and entire Mangeshkar family.”
RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat presented the ‘Vishesh Puruskar’ award to Aamir Khan and honoured him for his performance in the 2016 super hit film DANGAL.
The last time Aamir Khan had attended an award function was 16 years back, which was the Academy Awards where his film LAGAAN was nominated under ‘The Best Film’ category.
Well let’s see if the actor attends other such award functions in future or if this was just an exception made to honour Lata ji’s request.
