Padma Awards 2013 Winners: Actors Sridevi, Sharmila Tagore get honours

New Delhi, Jan 26 (): Bollywood actors Sharmila Tagpore and Sridevi are among the achievers who have been named for the Padma Shri Award, India’s fourth highest civilian award, on the eve of 64th Republic Day.

The 49-year-old Indian actress Sridevi, who has made a great and grand Bollywood comeback in 2012 after 15 years with a strong female-centric role in English Vinglish, has received the great Indian honour – Padma Shri Award. After 15-year sabbatical, Sridevi has come back and has won hearts with her simple and delicate performance in the film as a homemaker struggling to learn English.

Actress Sharmila Tagore is also named as the recipient of the Padma Bhushan Award. Tagore, the great-grandniece of Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore, was 13 when she acted in her first Bengali film “Apur Sansar” in 1959.

The late actor Rajesh Khanna is named as recipient of the Padma Bhushan. Rajesh Khanna, who began his career in 1966 with “Aakhri Khat”, became a superstar with hits like “Aradhana”, “Do Raaste”, “Safar” and “Anand”. He died in July 2012 following prolonged illness at the age of 69.

Besides Rahul Dravid and Mary Kom, four other sportspersons are chosen for Padma Bhushan Award—Para athlete Hosanagara Nagarajegowda Girisha, mountaineer Premlata Agrawal, rower Bajrang Lal Takharand and boxer Ngangom Dingko Singh — are chosen for the Padma Shri award.
