Vidya Balan may not have had a release since Bobby Jasoos but the talented actress surely is been honoured for her contribution to Indian cinema in her almost decade long career. The actress will be receiving the Raj Kapoor Special Contribution award from the Government of Maharashtra at a ceremony to be held in Pune today, April 30.
Expressing her happiness over the news, Vidya Balan further stated that she is humbled by the honour and is even more thrilled about the fact that she is receiving this honour from the state government since she is a Mumbaikar. She also added that the name ‘Raj Kapoor’ is iconic and hence an award named after him holds special importance.
From what we hear, Vidya Balan was supposed to fly to Delhi, but she will now be attending the ceremony in Pune and will later fly to the capital.
