Vidya Balan: It was a huge honour for me to present the Lifetime Achievement Award to Manna Dey!

The Kahaani actor has always been proud of her Bong connection

Vidya Balan who has portrayed many Bengali characters onscreen, in an interview to Filmfare shared her fond memories of having met the late Manna Dey.“I remember how humble Manna Dey was. I knew some his Bengali songs. I mentioned Ami je jalsaghare from Antony Firangi and he sang a couple of lines. Sujoy Ghosh has taught me the lyrics of the song so I even got a autograph of Manna Dey for Sujoy. It was a huge honour for me to present the Lifetime Achievement Award to him. It’s among those really memorable moments for me. ”
