Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan has received Dinanath Mangeshkar Award for his performance in Dangal. He was honoured by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Monday.
It is very interesting to note that Aamir Khan faced a backlash back in 2015 when he made a comment about intolerance. Many sections including RSS called for a boycott of his movies and others asked him to go to Pakistan.
Aamir who is famous for staying away from award functions, was there to accept the honour. While receiving the award he said, “Today wherever I am, the credit goes to all the writers who have written my films. I am here because of the directors and writer for the wonderful work they’ve done. I thank all of them."
