Mumbai: Singer Armaan Malik was honoured with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award for the 'Most Popular Singer of the Year' category here.
Armaan, who recently lent his voice for the song "Bol do na zara" from "Azhar", said that the award holds a "special place" for him.
"This year has been a crazy journey for me and every award that I have received has been an incentive to work even harder and better. However, this one holds a special place for me in my life!" Armaan told IANS.
"This award is considered to be a very important one in one's Bollywood career and I'm glad to get it so early... It feels surreal to know that people out there know me, know my songs and give me so much love. I would like to dedicate this award especially to my musical gurus and teachers Rita Kaul and Qadir Ghulam Mustafa Khan," he added.
