On April 24 every year, the Mangeshkar clan — led by Lata Mangeshkar — honour artistes to commemorate their father Pandit Dinanath Mangeshkar’s death anniversary.

This year the Pandit Dinanath Mangeshkar award will be given to Ranveer Singh at a function to be held in Pune.

Lata confirms the development and says, “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.”
