Aamir Khan has not attended an award function in 16 years. However, he had to do away with the record when India’s greatest singer invited him to attend an award function. Bharat Ratna, Lata Mangeshkar invited him to attend the Master Dinanath Mangeshkar award where he was also presented with the Vishesh Puraskar for essaying the role of Mahavir Phogat in Dangal.
Aamir last made it to an award function when his film Lagaan, had been nominated in the Best Film Category. Aamir recently attended the Master Dinanath awards, held to commemorate the 75th death anniversary of Lata Mangeshkar’s father, Master Dinanath Mangeshkar.
Lata Mangeshkar started her journey then, after losing her father. Aamir received appreciation for his work in dangal. RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat presented the award to Khan. Aamir couldn’t obviously say no to the ‘nightingale of India.’
