According to reports, Sandhya Mukherjee has called a senior official from Delhi and told him that she was not ready to be honored with Padma Shri in the Republic Day honors list. It is an insult to him to be selected for the Padma Shri at the age of 90 after more than eight decades of singing career. He also appealed that the non-acceptance of the Padma Shri award should not be politicized. He said that Padma Shri is more suitable for a junior artist than Gitashri Sandhya Mukhopadhyay. His family and fans feel the same way. He is far from any kind of politics. So don’t try to find any political reason in it.
