Asim Abbasi helmed ‘Cake’ became the first Pakistani movie ever to have a world premier at Leicester Square in London even though the movie was already one of the most awaited movies of the year it just got to next level after the London premiere.
Albeit the audience awaits for the movie to be released in Pakistan we have just been given another reason to make that ‘wait’ a little more harder since the director Asim Abbasi was awarded the best director accolade for this film at UK Asian Film Festival.
Cake was screened at the festival on March 20, 2018 and the award ceremony was held on 25th March.
Abbasi took to his twitter and wrote,
“Oh wow! So humbled and moved. Thank you @cometoUKAFF for the honour”
