The first half of the show was hosted by two talented Pakistani showbiz personalities Hamza Ali Abbasi and Sanum Jung while the hosts of the second half were Ahmed Ali Butt and Vasay Chaudry who are known for their humor and wit.
3rd Hum Awards were replete with all the glitz and glamour as there were dance performances by Ahsan Khan, Saba Qamar, Feroze Khan and Sajal Ali, Shehroze and Syra Subzwari and Mehwish Hayat. Although all performances were enjoyable but they could have been better if Pakistani songs were chosen instead of Indian songs.
Indian singing sensation Sunidhi Chauhan was also invited to entertain the stars on 3rd Hum Awards; she sang a medley of her songs as well as some Pakistani numbers. Hosts Vasay Chaudry and Ahmed Ali Butt supplied the punch lines and the jokes and there was never a dull moment when the two were on stage.
In the awards category, drama serial Sadqay Tumharay and Mohabat Subh Ka Sitara won the most nominations with a lion’s share of the 3rd Hum Awards going to Sadqay Tumharay.
