Humayun Saeed is the superstar of the entertainment industry who has been conferred with the Pride of Performance for his contribution to the industry.
In a recent interview, he talked about Pride of Performance and his feelings on getting this honour.
Humayun Saeed shared, “I think I am still learning and trust me I am not saying this just to show off. Still, when I am shooting a new film I am so nervous on the first day and it feels like I am acting for the first time. I am not acting this is the reality. So I am still learning.”
“If people say I did good work in Punjab Nahi Jaungi or in Mere Paas Tum Ho I would say that was my experience and I am progressing in my work. I am thankful to God and all the people who have worked with me and the audience who is still bearing me.”
He further said, “I never thought about Pride of Performance and I believed that I will get this award at an old age but when I got this I realized its value.”
Talking about criticism on Pride of Performance he said, “You are right that there is always criticism but in my case, I received lots of love and people were genuinely happy. Many actors called me and it felt like they wanted me to get this award and they were happy. Nobody said that I received this award at an early age however many said that I should have received this award earlier but I think I got this at the right time. If I have received this award at an early age then there must be lots of criticism.”
“I have seen success in the last 5-6 years and due to my drama Mere Paas Tum Ho I received lots of appreciation and people are happy for me. I feel like Mere Paas Tum Ho has played a great role in getting me this award”, he added.
Humayun Saeed also talked about his upcoming project London Nahi Jaungi and said, “We have to shoot another part of the film in London but we have no idea when we will resume the shooting. As soon as the conditions are better we will be back to shooting.”
“The first half of the film is very nice due to its scripts. It has the same feel like Punjab Nahi Jaungi. You can call it a sequel of Punjab Nahi Jaungi but the story is different. The characters are similar and yet very different in this film.”
Humayun Saeed wants people to support Pakistani movies and visit cinemas while following all the sops.
