It is a great honor for Amitabh Bachchan to receive the Lata Deenanath Mangeshkar Puraskar

The Mangeshkar family said on Tuesday that megastar Amitabh Bachchan would receive the Lata Deenanath Mangeshkar award.

The prize was established by the family and the trust in honor of Lata Mangeshkar, who passed away on February 6, 2022, as a result of multiple organ failure.

On April 24, which is their father Deenanath Mangeshkar’s memorial day, Bachchan, who is eighty-one, will be given the honor.

Each year, the Lata Deenanath Mangeshkar Puraskar is granted to a person who has made a revolutionary contribution to the country, its people, and society.

The first winner was Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was followed in 2023 by Asha Bhosle, the sister of Lata Mangeshkar.

According to a press statement from the Mangeshkar family, music virtuoso A R Rahman will be awarded the Master Deenanath Mangeshkar Puraskar for his contributions to Indian music.

The non-profit organization Deepstambh Foundation Manobal will also get a prize for their contributions to the area of social services, while Ashtavinayak Prakashit’s “Galib,” which was produced by Malhar and Vajreshwari, will be named the year’s greatest play.

Manjiri Phadke, a Marathi writer, will be honored with the Master Deenanath Mangeshkar Puraskar (Vagvilasini Puraskar) for her literary contributions, while actress Randeep Hooda will get the Vishesh Puraskar for her cinematic contributions.

Master Deenanath Mangeshkar Puraskar will be given to veteran performers Ashok Saraf and Padmini Kolhapure in recognition of their contributions to film.

Along with Atul Parchure for contributions to theater and drama, Bhau Torsekar for editorial services, and Roopkumar Rathod for his contribution to the area of music are also among the honorees.

According to the press release, Asha Bhosle will present the prizes to the recipients, while Hridaynath Mangeshkar will serve as the event’s master of ceremonies.

We have been commemorating this day without fail since 1943. Despite her passing, Lata didi’s blessings and inspiration go on. We hope that this will continue to be celebrated annually, even after we are gone. At this function, Hridaynath Mangeshkar declared, “We have established this trust Deenanath Smruti Pratishthan as we have all crossed 90.”

According to singer Roopkumar Rathod, winning the Deenanath Mangeshkar Puraskar is more significant than winning an Oscar or a Grammy.

“For the last 45 years, music has been my path. In my opinion, this accolade surpasses both the Grammy and the Oscar in significance. It’s similar to finding redemption after several births,” he said.
