Dubai: Shoaib Mansoor’s film Bol has earned prestigious awards to Pakistani actress Humaima Malick in the past and now once again she was awarded Best Lead Actress for her role in Bol at the first-ever South Asian Rising Star Film Awards.
Earlier, the actress has been awarded Best Actress award at the 11th Lux Style Awards 2012 and Best Actor Female award at London Asian Film Festival.
“I had no idea this role would earn so much recognition. It is an amazing honour to receive another award in a foreign land for a movie that is very close to my heart,” says Humaima, who was nominated in the Best Lead Actress category among four other actors.
Four other nominees for the category included Indian actors Tannishtha Chatterjee, Parineeti Chopra, Rasika Dugal and Preeti Desai.
Humaima said that she owed the entire team of Bol, Shoaib Mansoor — the director — and her family for the achievement.
Her role in the movie was of a strong woman who fought against the society’s hypocrisy, and her father’s patriarchal and double standards.
The award function, which was organised in collaboration with HBO, was part of the 9th annual South Asian International Film Festival — the largest entertainment gala related to South Asian entertainment industry to be held in the United States.
