Ahsan Khan is a name that is synonymous with versatile acting and unique projects. He fits into every role assigned, and his performance in Udaari won him 3 accolades this year. The actor who continues towards making a difference in the world took up a challenging role in Udaari and nailed it.
Celebrating my win with these underprivileged children is my idea of giving back. Law recognizes CSA as a crime for which the punishment can be as severe as the death penalty The movement that Uddari has started should not stop, I am committed to this cause for life. Let's not de-track and distract ourselves. Congratulations hum Tv for putting up such a great show and sending across this message in such a strong way ! Thank you LSA once again for acknowledging our effort. Let's combine our positive energies as a nation over issues that require attention. #uddari#humtv#mdproduction#kashffoundation#awards#bestactor#hum#lsa2017#spreadinglove#positivity#saynotochildabuse .
He recently won Hum Award for his performance in the high rated drama. However, Yasir Hussain’s child molestation joke at the ceremony caused an uproar in the media.
Speaking to The Express Tribune, the Udaari actor said, “I urge people to channel their emotions towards addressing the problem of child abuse in Pakistan. The real tragedy is not a few flippant jokes; it is the sad fact that every day, more than 11 children in Pakistan report sexual abuse. The number of reports made is unacceptably high but, sadly, the actual number of children abused each day is much higher. “We must come together and fight for the rights of abused children not just in Pakistan but also all over the world.”
As the crowd stood up to give us a standing ovation, I was very happy, supremely grateful and incredibly emotional; yet I knew the accolades were not for me. People were celebrating an era in which Pakistan has built up the courage needed to bring unpleasant, troublesome and inconvenient issues to the forefront. Thanks to Udaari, a topic heretofore hidden and taboo, was discussed in homes all across Pakistan and all over the world. The team of Udaari took a risk and acted with tremendous courage when they undertook the project. As I accept the accolades and awards, I salute each and every person associated with Udaari. These are brave, courageous and daring people. I love them. I respect them. And I believe in them. These awards – and I am immensely grateful for them – are prizes not for Ahsan Khan but a veritable recognition of the tremendous courage that made Udaari possible. #uddari#saynotochildabuse#humtv#humawsrds#bestactor#bestactorinanegativerole#paaimtiaz#zebo#respect
