HUM Network held its Servis 1st HUM Awards here yesterday at Karachi Expo Centre, an event that will be remembered for a long time as a star-studded, entertainment-packed, brilliantly executed and heart-warming one. Held to acknowledge and honor all those in the entertainment industry who have been a pillar of support to HUM in its eight-year long journey of success, the event was very well-received by all who attended.
Right from the word go the tempo was set with the red carpet area welcoming the guests and the glitterati and mouth-watering hors d’oeuvres being passed around.
As guests entered the performance area to be seated they were spellbound by the awe-inspiring, massive, and beautifully decorated and lit stage. Hardly had they got over their surprise that the opening act was announced which featured the inimitable Abida Parveen.
Mikaal Zulfiqar and Mahira Khan then came in to host the first segment which was of Music Awards. Anwar Maqsood was the very apt choice to present the Lifetime Achievement Award which went out posthumously to Moin Akhtar. The next performance to enthrall audiences was by Humayun Saeed and troupe who performed a premiere dance from his film Mein Hoon Shahid Afridi. This was followed by Mikaal and Mahira announcing the next category of awards which were of fashion. Much to everyone’s delight LED Butterflies performed next with their light-studded outfits literally lighting up the stage, and marking the entry for the next award segment which was of Special Recognition Awards, hosted by Bushra Ansari.
Mahira and Vasay Chaudhry hosted the next segment. They did a hilarious Truth or Dare with some of the celebrity guests present before announcing the next category of awards. Mehwish Hayat and Ahsan Khan brought the house down with their lively performance on a medley. After a hilarious interlude with the legendry Omer Sharif nominees for the Best Actor (female) in a Supporting Role in a serial Award were announced. Then came the surprise package that HUM had been keeping from all their guests – a riveting performance by Rabbi Shergil.
Humsafar – the phenomenal serial – had been placed in a separate category where all its team members were awarded for their remarkable contribution in making this play so legendry. The awards were given out by Sultana Siddiqui.
Humaima Malick‘s scintillating performance marked the close of the evening heralding the last category of award, that brought the end to this magnificent event.
