Last year the HUM Awards were clouded by controversy when Badar Khalil who was there to receive a life achievement award left her award on her seat and left the show shortly after she received the award. She talked to Dawn News even at that time and said that she was appalled by the treatment meted out to her on the award show. Apparently she was asked to sit in the backseat because Fawad Khan had to sit in her place.
Badar Khalil left for Canada shortly after this incident so no one ever got a chance to ask her what had happened in person. Also, she announced that she was not going to continue with acting because she was done with it after everything that happened at HUM Awards.
Faisal Qureshi invited Badar Khalil to her show. She said that she had forgiven everyone but even then she narrated the incident once again, she said,
