Aamir Khan, the Bollywood Superstar who was called anti-national two years ago becuase of his faith, was honoured on Monday by none other than Mohan Bhagwat - Chief of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the hardline Hindu organisation and source of inspiration allegedly for most of the anti-Muslim leaders and outfits in India.

After receiving the 'Vishesh Puraskar for Best Film' Dangal from Mohan Bhagwat at the 75th Master Deenanath Mangeshkar Award, Aamir Khan also ended his 16 long years of self imposed boycott of award functions.

Dangal is based on the story of Mahavir Singh Phogat and his struggle to train his two daughters, Geeta Phogat and Babita Phogat.

"I want to thank Lata Didi, the Dinanath trust, and their entire family, for bestowing us and our film with this honour", Aamir said after receiving the award.

Aamir, while receiving the award, also thanked all the writers, directors and colleagues he has worked with in his over two decade long career.

“Today wherever I am, the credit goes to all the writers who have written my films. I am here because of the directors and writer for the wonderful work they’ve done. I thank all of them,” he said.

The ‘PK’ actor last attended an award show when 'Lagaan' was nominated in the Best Film category at Oscars.

The award function coincided with 75th death anniversary of Dinanath Mangeshkar - singer Lata Mageshkar's father.

Aamir Khan was trolled and criticised by all and sundry in 2015 when he expressed concerns over the sense of insecurity and fear had been growing in country after the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) came to power in New Delhi. BJP is considered as the political arm of RSS.
