Just like the 4th Hum Awards in 2016, this year’s Hum Awards show was not as buzzing as it could have been. Last time superstars such as Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan showed up so late they didn’t make it to the red carpet in time, this year the two celebrities didn’t come to the event at all.

The HUM Awards 2017 were held Saturday night in Lahore and it sure was quite an extravagant affair, till we couldn’t help but notice quite a number of popular faces that were missing from the camera’s eye!

Was it a mere matter of prestige for these famous personalities or were they really settling commitments at other places? Let’s find out:

Mahira Khan

Mahira won an award for ‘Bin Roye’. However, she was absent from the crowd.

Atif Aslam

Atif was in Holland for a concert. Can we blame him?

Ali Zafar

Here is Ali’s latest Instagram post. We wonder what he was busy shooting.

Saba Qamar

Earlier, Saba had announced that she would not be able to attend the LSAs 2017, but we were oblivious to how the fact applied to the Hum Awards too!

Urwa Hocane and Farhan Saeed

What’s this! Did Urwa just fly in late Saturday night to surprise her hubby Farhan at his concert in Bahria University?

One crazy night it was! Thank you Bahria University, Karachi. You guys were amaziiingg!!!! ✔

While Fahad Mustafa, Urwa Hocane, Mohsin Abbas Haider, Hania Aamir and Javed Sheikh are busy on the sets of Na Maloom Afaad 2 in Cape Town, we’re still wondering about the absence of many reputable names on this luxurious festivity.
