The announcement of the award took place at Prabhu Kunj, the residence of Mangeshkar family in the presence of singer Usha Mangeshkar and Hridaynath Mangeshkar among others.

"In memory of Master Deenanathji, whose monumental contributions as a singer, musician and stage artiste have been an inspiration to the people of Maharashtra and India, the Mangeshkar family organizes the Master Deenanath Mangeshkar Smruti Pratishthan Awards to honour legends. We are glad that we have the love and support of the masses," Hridaynath said.

The award ceremony will take place at the Shri Shanmukhanand Hall, Sion along with some musical performance.

Pandit Birju Maharaj and Saswati Sen will be delivering a Kathak performance followed by Pandit Ajoy Chakraborty's rendition of Thumris, with Anindo Chatterjee as the Tabla accompanist.
