And the award goes to….


Finally, the 7th Hum Awards took place in Houston last night. Well, morning, difference in time zones.

It had all the charm and allure our honor shows have. The show additionally had a considerable amount of fun minutes, from Ahmed Ali Butt dressed as an actual cell phone to Asim Azhar giving a dazzling tribute to icon Alamgir.

Lifetime Achievement Award

Winner: Alamgir

Hum Awards, Pakistan’s most expensive awards held in Houston, USA, although the sponsorship was not as  successful as planned.

In the current media crisis that our country is facing, is hosting a show this luxurious, in USA a smart move by the channels?! I wouldn’t say so. And hosting award shows might be a new strategy to lure clients/sponsors to get foreign visas.

And what was up with our female actors not wearing any jewelry???? Along with the whole show, the celebrities as well attracted a lot of critics who commented on their dresses. Our most anticipated actors i.e the Hocane sisters, Ayesha Omer and Hania Amir give a little bit of a shock when stepped in. mawra who has transformed over the years showed up in a dress, very pretty but would’ve been more suitable for a mehendi event perhaps. It was a lovely moment watching Asim Azhar promote Kashmir by his “ I <3 Kashmir” scarf, but it was very unpredictable of him supporting his rumored girlfriend wearing a “saree”.

A lot better was expected by the actors. Maybe next year we’ll get to see something spectacular. And not to forget, congratulations to all the winners. You surely deserved it!
