Entertainment Desk: Zayed Khan, the hero of the film Dhakai, is often discussed on social media due to his various activities, although his presence on the film screen is less.
His latest visit to the United States is all about his presence on social media. Meanwhile, Zayed Khan suddenly became the “talk of the town” on Friday (July 21).
Several media outlets in Bangladesh published news, two organizations named “Institute of Public Policy and Diplomacy Research” and “Humanitarian Focus Foundation” in the United States jointly gave “The Humanitarian Leadership Award” to 40 people from around the world.
The Dhallywood actor himself shared the news from his verified Facebook page. He said that the organization selected him for this award because of his various humanitarian activities including food assistance for artistes during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The award was presented at a ceremony in the delegates’ dining room at the UN headquarters on Thursday. It is mentioned in various media of Bangladesh that this award has been given by the United Nations.

Blitz, a portal dealing with various contemporary international issues, started verifying its authenticity when the discussion started. They also contacted the UN authorities to know the matter.
According to Blitz, the “Institute of Public Policy and Diplomacy Research” which awarded Zayed Khan is not an organization authorized by the United Nations.
After that, the netizens started criticizing Zayed Khan more and more. But Zayed Khan, the hero of Dhakai movie, did not take it well.

There is so much negative talk about it. I don’t put them on. But what a small nation, you will be more proud that it says Zayed Khan Film Actor Bangladesh. I gave them the video. The video showed me being awarded. Still, is there any value in such talk?”
