Who says we are awed by the 'hero' only.. B-town first and the only superstar villain Pran created history yesterday when Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari called on Pran and formally presented him with the Dadasaheb Phalke award at his home in Bandra.

Due to health issues Pran couldn't collect the award at the 60th National Film Awards ceremony held in New Delhi last week. His family members were present at the function but as per the norms the winner has to come personally and collect the award.

But this time in the history of Phalke Awards rules where twisted and the Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari himself went to the legendary 93 year old actor's home and gave him the honour.

 "It's a great honour to present the honour to Pran saab. His contribution to the Indian cinema has been huge and the greatness of the award gets bigger after honouring Pran with Dadasaheb Phalke," Mr. Tewari told reporters at Pran's residence.

Mr. Tewari, was accompanied by I&B Secretary Uday Kumar Varma and a delegation of the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting and the Directorate of Film Festivals presented the coveted award, comprising a Swarn Kamal, citation, shawl and a cash prize of Rs. 10 lakh.

Apart from Pran's family members, well-known filmmaker Karan Johar's mother, Hiroo Johar, was also present.
