Tamannah was presented with Sridevi Award at the Zee Apsara Awards in Hyderabad on Sunday.
According to the organisers, she was honoured for her contribution to cinema and as a deserving woman achiever.
Expressing happiness, Tamannah said, “Sridevi was someone I looked upto during my formative years in the industry. It is such a privilege to be presented an award named after her. I started out really young in the industry just like her and I understand that it takes decades to build a legacy.”
Recently, the actress slammed few sections of the media for carrying false reports about her and asked them to be responsible.
In a statement, she said she was exasperated with false reports and baseless speculation about her in the media.
“They say ignorance is bliss but I find yours rather disturbing. I often wonder why scribes don’t do their homework well before publishing articles,” she said.
