New Delhi: She still rules the hearts of many as ‘Sapnon Ki Rani’ and the honour of receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award added another jewel to veteran actor Sharmila Tagore’s crown.

The 72-year-old actor was bestowed with the recognition by the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry here for her contribution in the field of cinema.

Minister of State for Prime Minister’s Office Jitendra Singh and Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari presented the award to Tagore at a ceremony held last night at Siri Fort Auditorium.

The celebrated actor debuted in movies with auteur Satyajit Ray’s Bengali film “Apur Sansar” in 1959.

Her breakout role in Hindi cinema was Shakti Samanta’s 1964 film “Kashmir Ki Kali” and Tagore went on to feature in classics such as “Aradhana”, “Mausam”, “Amar Prem”, “Satyakam”, among others.

She received the National Award for Best Actress for the film. The actor also received National Award for Best Supporting Actress for 2003 Bengali film, “Abar Aranye”.
