Legendary Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan has been honoured with the third Lata Deenanath Mangeshkar Award at Deenanath Mangeshkar Natyagriha (drama theatre) in Mumbai by the third eldest Mangeshkar sibling and ace singer, Usha Mangeshkar: however, it was his son Abhishek Bachan’s humble gesture of refusing to sit on stage with delegates due to huge respect which has received admiration on all over social media.

The award, initiated by Lata Mangeshkar's family in memory of her, post her demise in 2022, was given to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and ace singer, Asha Bhosale ahead of Amitabh. This year, AR Rahman was also honoured with the same award. Speaking at the event, Amitabh Bachchan also talked about his father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan's love for Lata Mangeshkar's voice and said: "I'm fortunate to receive this award today. I never really regarded myself worthy of such an award, but Hridyanath ji tried hard so that I could come here. The sweetness in her voice was honey and as the flow of honey never breaks, her 'swar' never breaks. Whenever someone hits the right chord, our soul meets with 'parmatma' . And Lata Mangeshkar ji's 'swar' joins us with God."

Many actors, including Randeep Hooda, Ashok Saraf, Abhishek Bahchcan, Padmini Kolhapure and playback singer, Roopkumar Rathod were also present in the event. In a video surfacing from the same, Abhishek was seen being honoured with a flower bouquet. However, when he was leaving the stage, one of the delegates present over there, asked Abhishek to grab a seat along with them. But showing respect to the elders, the actor refused to sit beside them and walked down the stage towards the audience.
