Ajay Devgan has been nominated and will be awarded the “Padma Shri” this year! Award winners list for 2016 came out a while back.
Along with Ajay, Priyanka Chopra, Anupam Kher, Rajinikanth and singer Udit Narayan are other few winners from the B-Town.
Ajay, who is currently shooting in Bulgaria for “Shivaay”, said, “I feel deeply humbled yet elated to receive such honor from my own country. This announcement today makes it special for me when I’m filming abroad for my new film “Shivaay”. I’d like to acknowledge that Padma Samman puts an extra responsibility on me and I promise to serve my country for as long as I can.”
With a career spanning more than two decades, this is a truly well-deserved honor.
Ajay won his first National Film Awards for Best Actor for Zakhm in 1998 and second in 2002 for The Legend of Bhagat Singh.
