Here’s What All Went Down At The 7th Kashmir Hum Awards 2019!

Award shows in Pakistan are a rarity. So, it feels very good to see a channel not only being consistent in holding an award function every year but also staying true to its promise of making it bigger and better with each edition. The 7th Kashmir Hum Awards took place on 5th October and just like last year, they went international once again. This time the venue was in Houston, USA, and the Pakistani entertainment industry took the city by storm by holding a successful night of fun and glamor that celebrated the best of last year.

One of Galaxy Lollywood’s followers was present at the 7th Kashmir Hum Awards and shared with us some insights about the entire event. So, read on to find out what exactly went down at the show, which stars dazzled on the stage with their performances, and who won it big that night.

The Green Carpet

Stars appearing on the green carpet as they make their way inside the venue is always a highlight for any event. As it allows the fans’ to see their favorite stars up close and personal as well as for the stars to interact with their fans. The green carpet for the 7th Kashmir Hum Awards was full of glitz and glamor as the stars made their way in the venue but not before sharing their excitement and anticipation regarding the international affair.

Thousands of fans waited at the green carpet to catch a glimpse of their favorite stars and they were not disappointed as the stars stopped to take selfies and interact with their fans. One sweet moment witnessed by the audience there was when Kubra Khan helped a fan pick up her cell phone that she had dropped all the while being decked in an elaborate glamorous count. The gesture definitely won the hearts of the fans.

The Event

The event kickstarted with the national anthems of USA and Pakistan, with the Pakistani anthem being performed by various celebrities on stage. This show of patriotism and respect shown to the host country was definitely the right note to kickstart the event with. An energetic and stirring performance on the song Dil Se performed by Haroon Rasheed got the audience into high spirits as they sang along to the patriotic song.

After a few short speeches given by Sultana Siddiqui and Duraid Qureshi, the first hosts of the evening Ali Rehman Khan and Mikaal Zulfiqar took the stage. Performing on the song Tu Turu Tara Tara, the duo made their grand entry and right from there they had the audience engaged and in splits with their energy. They were witty, energetic, entertaining, and spontaneous and definitely one of the highlights of the entire event.

Some insights

There is so much that goes on these award shows that it does not get to air on television when the awards get telecasted on television. But as we said above, one of Galaxy Lollywood’s followers was present at the award and gave us some interesting happenings of the event.

During one of Noman Ejaz’s winning speeches for Darr Si Jaati Hai Sila, he ended up saying to the younger actors being nominated alongside him in the category to not get jealous and work hard. Yikes, that is a not-so-subtle nod towards last year’s controversy at another award show.

Bee Gul, during her acceptance speech for best writer, was the only one who talked about the plight of Kashmir. With so many celebrities present there, it was certainly sad to see none of them mentioning the still pressing issue of Kashmir.

Ahmed Ali Butt did his version of Best Dressed contest during a break in the ceremony and using his signature wit and humor gave several celebrities titles. He called Mawra Hocane “Green Tea”, Hania Aamir “Rooh Afza”, asked Sarah Khan if she was there to attend a valima? In the end, he awarded Zeba Bakhtyar the Best Dressed title. Adnan Siddiqui won the Best Dressed title from the male celebrities and he confessed that he had worn the same sherwani in the last award show of the season and only changed the buttons for this event.

During the many wins for Suno Chanda, Farhan Saeed and Iqra Aziz made a point of talking about how a drama of the comedy genre can too bring in accolades. Momina Duraid also talked about how many actors and actresses had initially refused to do Suno Chanda because it was a comedy Ramzan play and not telecasted during primetime.

Another segment by the ever hilarious Ahmed Ali Butt was the Samosa Awards. Using the opportunity of having so many celebrities gathered together, Ahmed Ali Butt gave out samosas wrapped in a plate as awards. Among them, Yasir Hussain got the Samosa Award for “Most Annoying Status” thanks to the many comments that he makes via his insta stories.

A touching moment witnessed by all was when Ahmed Ali Butt asked Adnan Siddiqui to play the flute and he readily performed Ye Watan Tumhara Hai and mesmerized the audience with his flute skills.

The Performances

Performances by the stars of the industry are what the audience wants to see the most. And the 7th Kashmir Hum Awards did not disappoint on that front. From tributes to energetic dance numbers, the event was full of memorable performances that had the audience enthralled.

Azaan Sami Khan and Hania Amir performed together for the first time as a pairing on a medley of vintage Pakistani songs. The duo showed a glimpse of their chemistry and raised the expectation for their upcoming film together Patakh De. During the performance, Azaan came down from the stage for an impromptu dance with Reema and wowed the audience.

Asim Azhar took the stage and gave a moving tribute to Alamgir by singing many of his classic songs. His electrifying performance was also packed with a surprise where he called the legendary singer on stage an performed with him which got a standing ovation from the audience.

Ahsan Khan and Mehwish Hayat turned up the heat of the event with their blazing performance. With two stronger performers coming together and setting the stage on fire, there was no person in the audience not excited and cheering along to the duo’s performance.

The closing performance of the night was by none other than the Sufi queen of Pakistan, Abida Parveen. Her dhamaal had the stars up on their feet and moving along to her music as she entranced the audience with her magic.
