Earlier, Humaima has been awarded Best Actress award at the 11th Lux Style Awards 2012 and Best Actor Female award at London Asian Film Festival.
Humaima said,“I had no idea this role would get so much gratitude. It is an marvelous honour to get another award in a foreign land for a movie that is very close to my heart.” 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.
