Rajesh Roshan honoured with Lata Mangeshkar award

Veteran Hindi film music composer Rajesh Roshan has been decorated with the Lata Manageshkar award by the Madhya Pradesh government.

This award for 2010-11 containing Rs two lakh in cash and a scroll of honour was presented to Roshan last night at a function here by the State Culture Minister Laxmikant Sharma.

The 56-year-old composer said that during his career spanning 36 years, he had never accepted an award from any state government but broke the tradition as it was in the name of a singer whose songs he had listened to since childhood and grew up humming.

The award was instituted by the state government in 1984 and since its inception it has been given away to 27 personalities including legends like late Jagjit Singh, Asha Bhonsle and Naushad.
