On Wednesday, Megastar Amitabh Bachchan was bestowed with the prestigious Lata Deenanath Mangeshkar Award. Established in memory of the legendary Lata Mangeshkar by her family and trust, the award honors her remarkable legacy. Lata Mangeshkar, the eldest of the renowned Mangeshkar siblings, passed away in 2022. Bachchan, aged 81, received this esteemed recognition on April 24, coinciding with the memorial day of Deenanath Mangeshkar, a revered figure in theatre and music and the father of the Mangeshkar siblings. The award was presented to Bachchan by Usha Mangeshkar, the third eldest sibling of the Mangeshkar family. Regrettably, veteran singer Asha Bhosle, the second sibling, was unable to attend due to illness, as she was initially slated to present the trophies at the event.
