Bajirao Mastani actor Ranveer Singh will be honoured with Dinanath Mangeshkar Award in April, says melody queen Lata Mangeshkar. The Mangeshkar clan – led by Lata – honours artistes to commemorate their father Pandit Dinanath Mangeshkar’s death anniversary every year.
This year, the award will be bestowed upon Ranveer at a function to be held in Pune on April 24. “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,” Lata Mangeshkar said in a statement. Ranveer made his Bollywood acting debut with Band Baaja Baaraat in 2010. He went on to feature in hit films like Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela and Lootera.
