At the Indus Valley International Film Festival, which took place in Chandigarh, India, several individuals, including Mahira Khan and Saba Qamar, were honored with top prizes.
Mahira Khan, who stars in the television show Humsafar, won the prize for Best Actress for her performance in the short film Prince Charming, directed by Sheheryar Munawar and focusing on post-marital depression.
In a statement, Khan remarked that she wanted to dedicate the honour to “all the females who are secretly suffering from post-marital melancholy.”
“Despite the fact that such issues are frowned upon in our culture and society, we continue to live in this world.” I’m overjoyed that this performance moved the hearts of the people in the audience; it’s one of the parts that will remain dear to me for the rest of my life. I’d want to express my gratitude to my wonderful friend Shehryar Munawar for having faith in me.
