The way one associates ‘Mr. Perfectionist’ to Aamir Khan and ‘Bad Man’ with Gulshan Grover, the veteran actor-filmmaker Manoj Kumar has always been called as ‘Bharat‘. And what could be more apt an occasion for him to be conferred with the Lifetime Achievement honour than on the eve of India’s Republic Day! The award will be given to him at the Apsara Awards ceremony by ‘The Film And Television Producers Guild of India’ (headed by Ramesh Sippy), in an event that is to be held at Yash Raj Studios.
Talking about the award, Manoj Kumar said that it was a matter of pride for him to be honoured by his own fraternity.
The good news for all Manoj Kumar fans is that the actor-filmmaker is all set to start his next film titled DNA Report, for which he will start casting next week. When asked about his dream cast, he minced no words when he said that it was Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor, as they suited the roles perfectly.
