The annual Hum Awards took place in Houston and it was a glitzy affair, though we did feel a bit that the star quotient was less this year. There was no Fawad Khan, Ahad Raza Mir, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Osman Khalid Butt or Sajal Aly. In fact, the stars of Hum TV’s latest film Superstar – Mahira Khan and Bilal Ashraf – also didn’t make an appearance.
Nonetheless, the night was lit and there were some fun performances and skits to keep viewers and those in attendance hooked.
Starting with red carpet pictures of couples
The show began with everyone reciting the National Anthem.
After which Haroon performed his evergreen Dil Se Maine Dekha Pakistan.
Mikaal Zulfiqar & Ali Rehman Khan hosted the show and entertained the audiences with their antics on stage, while Ahmed Ali Butt brought his quirkiness.
Azaan Sami Khan and Hania Aamir gave a scintillating performance – perhaps a nod to their upcoming film.
Asim Azhar paid a tribute to Alamgir.
Abida Parveen mesmerised the crowds with her performance.
Mehwish Hayat and Ahsan Khan wrapped up the event with a grand finale.
