Soon after the nominations of the Lux Style Awards were announced, it created quite a debate among the celebrities. A number of celebrities requested to remove their nomination from the awards show as the jury has also nominated an alleged harasser.
The names of the nominees include Eman Suleman, Rubaab Ali, clothing brand Generation, MUAs Saima Bagfrede, Fatima Nasir, Meesha Shafi, and rock band The Sketches.
Moreover, there were also a number of celebrities like Iman Ali, Ahmed Ali Butt and others who raised their voices and talked in favor of the awards show.
However, another celebrity joined the list and criticized the nominees from withdrawing their names.
The Chupan Chupai actor Ahsan Khan took to his Instagram account and said that the platform has always supported the Pakistani entertainment industry.
He added that it has always recognized exceptional work and appreciated all for bringing important issues to the forefront.
I find it impossible to jump on to the bandwagon and criticize Lux Style Awards. The platform has always supported our industry. They are the ones who gave me the best actor award when I worked in a play that highlighted the issue of child sexual abuse.
They gave me a platform to talk about the lynching of Mishal Khan. And they gave me an opportunity to present a song about the harassment cause.
It is wrong to make a judgement on our own. It is not anyone’s place to do so but the judges. Let us trust our legal system and get off our high horses and stop condemning people based on accusations, conjecture and gossip. We should stop and now.
He further said:
And we should applaud the fact that Lux Style Awards did not take it upon itself to pass judgement on a sub judice matter. Anybody can accuse anyone and without the courts it would be a lawless society.
I highlighted a very sensitive issue in Udaari along with my producer and director. Lux Style Awards recognized our work and gave all of us awards for bringing an important issue to the forefront.
