At last Aamir Khan will accept an award after 16 years

New Delhi: The jinx seems to be breaking or is it mellowing down with age. Whatever be the reason, after a gap of six years Aamir Khan will be accepting an award. 

16 years back he had attended the Oscar Award Ceremony where his film Lagaan got nominated in the best Film Category. And now after 16 years, he will be accepting the prestigious Master Dinanath Mangeshkar Awards in Mumbai. Besides Aamir, veteran actress Vajyanthimala and cricketer Kapil Dev will also be honoured. Aamir is receiving the award ' Vishesh Puraskar' for his excellent performance in Dangal. For the uninitiators, Aamir had stopped going to the award shows when his film 'Dil' opposite Madhuri Dixit did not bag an award and which was declared as an unfair deal meted out to Aamir's film
