New Delhi: Leading media personalities, film stars, industrialists, retired civil servants and educationists including the late cartoonist Mario Miranda, Bollywood veterans Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi, and former Chief Vigilance Commissioner Nagarajan Vittal were conferred the prestigious Padma awards here Wednesday.

The colourful ceremony was held at the Durbar Hall of Rastrapati Bhavan here, when Miranda’s son Rahul received the Padma Vibhushan from President Pratibha Patil amidst thunderous applause from guests, including Vice President Hamid Ansari, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and a host of other dignitaries.

But the loudest applause was reserved for Dharamendra and Shabana Azmi, both of whom received the Padma Bhushan, and for international archer Limba Ram Ahari and Olympic hockey gold medallist Zafar Iqbal.

Along with the lone Padma Vibhushan, 13 Padma Bhushan and 53 Padma Shri awards were presented.
