The proud cast and crew of Pakistan’s popular drama serial ‘Diyar-e-Dil’ took home 8 awards at Hum Awards 2016. Diyar-e-Dil won awards in Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Drama Serial, Best Original Soundtrack, Best Writer categories.
The star-studded awards night lauded the celebrities of Hum network with prestigious awards and heart-winning stage performances. The 4th series of Hum Awards presented by Hum Television Network and Entertainment Channel (HTNEC) was held at The Expo Center Karachi.
The awards event not only recognized the heroes and the divas from HUM TV drama serial but also honored leaders from the fashion industry, musicians and veterans of Pakistani film industry with prestigious awards.
Hum Awards featured energetic performances and honoured some of our industry’s biggest legends; the 4th Servis Hum Awards were hosted by comedian-duo Ahmad Ali Butt and Vasay Chaudhry. Hamza Ali Abbasi and Sanam Jung were next hosts of the evening.
Actress and performer Sohai Ali Abro danced to Bollywood hit numbers, dressed to perfection in a beautiful orange lehnga choli. The perfect comedian duo of rapper/actor Ahmad Ali Butt and screenwriter/actor Vasay Chaudhry had the audience in fits of laughter owing to their comic timing and spellbindingly-entertaining script.
Industry veterans such as Nadeem Baig, Samina Pirzada, Sania Saeed and Behroz Sabzwari took to the stage to present or accept awards. Actor and director Nadeem Baig was honoured with a Special Lifetime Achievement Award for his immense contribution and achievements in the industry.
Actors Mehwish Hayat, Humayun Saeed and Noor Bukhari delivered electrifying performances on stage. Urwa and Mawra’s dance performance was held towards the very end, which came out as mediocre and lacked energy altogether, however, the preceding talent powerhouses compensated for the latter’s lacklustre performance.
The first award of the night was given out to Best Model Female, which was conferred on Sunita Marshal. The second award in this category was Best Model – Male Popular, which was given out to Shahzad Noor. The second category was of Music. The Best Music Video Popular award and Best Music Single (Popular) award was presented by ace singer Atif Aslam to Uzair Jaswal.
Atif Aslam’s performance truly captivated the audience, where he sang live acoustic, and quickly geared up for fast upbeat tracks.
Hum Network CEO Duraid Qureshi was awarded an award from the Special category: Recognition Award Films, to producers of ‘Manto’. Sania and actor Sarmad Khoosat received the award for ‘Manto‘. ‘Jawani Phir Nahi Aani‘ and ‘Bin Roye‘ also received the same award.
The stage had a distinct look inspired by the Great Gatsby. It was grand and hypnotically beautiful; the kind of sets we see during Hum’s Bridal Couture Week.
