After years of ban on not attending any award show, Aamir Khan has finally walked in to attend and even accept an award! Shocking, isn’t it? The National Awards and most of the award functions this year may have snubbed him for her phenomenal performance as Mahavir Phogat in Dangal. However, Master Dinanath Mangeshkar Awards that was held last night at Shanmukananda Hall, ensured that they salute and laud him for his work! The awards ceremony takes place every year. Last year, Ranveer Singh had won big with his spectacular portrayal of Peshwa Bajirao in Bajirao Mastani. And this year, they have honoured Aamir for Dangal. Not just by critics but even in terms of audience’s favourite, 2016’s best film and even actor was Aamir Khan. His portrayal as Mahavir Phogat, the shocking body transformation for the film and a lot more that went into making the film a profit machine, deserved a lot of applause and even awards.
However, a lot of award functions didn’t care to mention his work. In fact, even the National Awards committee decided to snub the actor with no ‘special mention’ of any sort. But looks like finally, he’s being credited for Dangal, courtesy the Master Dinanath Mangeshkar Awards. Veteran actress Vyajanthimala was also honoured at the event. We’ve got pics of the actor holding his first trophy after years and you folks should definitely not miss it! So scroll away and check it out!

While the actor has dissed the Bollywood award shows for over 16 years now, looks like he is now starting to attend awards that matter to him. Master Dinanath Mangeshkar Awards takes place every year as Lata Mangeshkar honours her father. It was quite delightful to see Aamir accept an award after a long time now. We’ve been wanting to see him at Bollywood awards but considering how things are going right now, we’re more respectful of his decision to boycott them. Anyway, how did you guys feel after seeing Aamir hold a trophy for a film performance? You can tell us in the comments box below.
