Rajesh Khanna, Sridevi to receive Padma awards

Last updated on: January 25, 2013 16:29 IST

Sharmila Tagore, Sridevi and Rajesh KhannaThe list of recipients of this year's Padma Bhushan -- India's third highest civilian award --  set to be announced later today, includes three heavyweights of Hindi cinema.

According to reports, while  Sharmila Tagore and Rajesh Khanna will be honoured with Padma Bhushan, Sridevi is up for a Padma Shree -- India's fourth highest civilian honour -- this year.

Khanna, who'd starred in many hit films along side Tagore including Aradhna and Safar, passed away last year and will be felicitated posthumously.

Meanwhile, Sridevi's smashing comeback in English Vinglish hasn't gone unnoticed.

The selection committee this year included actress Ratna Pathak Shah, scientist Anil Kakodkar and home secretary R K Singh, among others.
