In midst of the Hum Awards controversy and calls for boycotting those actors who are currently fulfilling their professional duties in Toronto, actor-singer Bilal Khan and actor Vasay Chaudhry have proven themselves to be model citizens by flying back to the country especially to fulfill their civic duties.
In an Instagram post, Bilal revealed that he flew back from Toronto a week ago to participate in the General Elections 2018 and will be flying later in the day back to Toronto. He added that though it was easier for him to stay there, he decided not to because he felt it was his responsibility to come back and not let his vote go waste.
Will you VOTE? I flew from Toronto to Lahore a week ago just so I could vote. I will be voting tomorrow and flying back at night for the awards happening in Toronto. It would’ve made more sense for me to stay there but I came back. The reason I tell you this is that I want you ALL to vote. Each vote counts and it is our duty as citizens of our country to vote. It is cool to vote. Don’t be uncool & lazy to not vote (unless you are underage). Will you vote tomorrow? Y or N? PS: tag your friends so more people see this message #bilalkhan #elections2018 🇵🇰 🗳
Later, as he ran to catch his flight back to Toronto, he shared a picture of himself with his inked thumb and urged everyone to go out and vote.
Stood in line this morning in NA-131 polling station to cast my vote – it was extremely hot but duty fulfilled. It wouldn’t be hard to guess who I voted for given “Larho Mujhey” is such a recognized anthem. Please, please, please go out VOTE. It doesn’t matter if it is hot or humid or there are long lines. Take out everyone and make them vote. You only have to do this once in 5 years. Okay time for me to pack and leave for Toronto, flight is in 8 hours. #bilalkhan #pakistanelections #pakistanelections @paperazzimagazine @hellopakistan @dawn_images @divamagazinepakistan @sundaytimes @tribunedit @galaxylollywood @ebuzztoday @therealshowsha
Similarly, Vasay Chaudry revealed that he took a 14-hour flight back to Pakistan to vote. However, he did not specify from where.
Hamza Ali Abbasi and Samina Peerzada who are also scheduled to participate in the Hum Awards did not go to Toronto as yet and stayed back to cast their vote. Both of them shared their inked thumbs on social media.
