Quoting sources close to her, it said that she is trying to tweak her schedule since she has also committed herself for ‘Matr’ movie. “However, getting the kind of honour and recognition that a Dadasaheb Phalke award brings with it is huge,” it said.
“So she decided to take some time out from her schedule to receive it. She has to be back in Delhi to begin work on her film Matr,” it concluded.
