The singer attended the function despite being unwell over the last three days. She was conferred with a trophy and a cheque worth Rs.10 lakh by Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari.

\"I shared a special bond with Yashji and will always miss singing for his films. This was the reason that despite being unwell I came for the award function,\" said Lata, who looked pristine in a white saree with floral prints.
