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 received the Raj Kapoor Special Contribution award from the Government of Maharashtra at a ceremony held in Pune, April 30.
Expressing her happiness over the news, Vidya Balan further stated that she was humbled by the honour and was even more thrilled about the fact that she received 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.
