7th Hum Awards Nominations List
Epk got in touch with a Houston based journalist Sheikh Najam who has been publishing a newspaper by the name of “Pakistan Times” for the past 27 years.
“Our aim is to stay connected with the Pakistani community and we are quite successfully doing so.”
Talking about the 7th HUM awards and the expectations from the show he said,
“I believe this award show will be one of the biggest show of Pakistan.They are coming to USA for the first time. Pakistani films and dramas are becoming popular with time, Hum Tv is popular among women in particular. So the stars of these dramas are coming to the event, so the excitement for the show is huge!”
Talking about the ticket sales he shared some interesting details as well:
“The venue has a capacity of 8000 people.As far as the tickets are concerned, more than 75% of the tickets have been sold. Since we are also advertising about them I know this and people can see this online as well.The seats at the back are priced at $50 and they are all sold out. As far as the floor is concerned the price is higher for the seats there. The floor is where additional seats installed besides the ones in the arena.Among these seats only a limited VIP tickets are left around and the other tickets remaining must be around 100-150 tickets left”
Last year the event was held in Toronto which garnered a great response. Houston houses a great population of citizens from Pakistani origin. Keeping this in mind we expect the show to have garnered great buzz there. We asked Najam about it:
“There is a lot of excitement in the public about the award show.HUM Awards itself is very popular and people was waiting for it.Also because the Indian shows that were being arranged by Pakistani promoters got cancelled. So a sense of support and patriotism has arisen in public here to support Pakistanis to succeed. I think it is a positive sign for the Pakistan Film industry”
This is What Mahira Khan Is up to In Houston After Superstar!
Recently both Salman Khan and Diljit Dosanjh cancelled their shows which were being arranged by a Pakistani promoter in USA due to pressure.The incident has further given HUM Awards a great push according to Najam.
Looks like the event will go swimmingly with an excited audience. With electrifying performances and glamorous red carpet looks we surely look forward to the event.
