The veteran actor won the award for her outstanding contribution to cinema!
It’s truly inspiring to see one legend of the Hindi film industry honouring the other. It was a similar sight when Amitabh Bachchan presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to Tanuja for her immense contribution to Bollywood at 59th Idea Filmfare Awards 2013.
Tanuja, mother of actors and sisters Kajol and Tanishaa Mukherji was married to director, producer and writer Shomu Mukherjee. She has been in the Indian film industry since 1950 and some of her best works include Baharen Phir Bhi Aayengi (1966), Jewel Thief, Haathi Mere Saathi (1971), Anubhav (1971) and many more.
BollywoodLife wishes the actor a hearty congratulations for this recognition!
