Aamir Khan has stayed away from every possible award function for over a decade. But he will attend the Dadasaheb Phalke Academy Awards that will be presented on May 3. The annual event at Juhu’s Hotel Tulip Star will honour some of Bollywood’s biggest names. However, these awards are separate from the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Awards instituted by the Government of India.
Ashok Shekhar, son of veteran actor Chandrashekhar, who is one of the organisers of the event, insists that they have written confirmation from Aamir that he will be present at the function. “He is keen on attending and has stated that he will be there only for half an hour,” says Ashok, adding that the ceremony will start at around 6.30 pm and Aamir is expected to show up by 9 pm. The actor will unveil a wax statue of Dadasaheb Phalke
