While sitting at the airport and waiting for my flight I went through all the Lux style award results,I never talk about such things as the back lash is always to strong for me to handle,but this time I thought might as well. I agree with most of the winners, like Baaghi team, best models etc. Few things bothered me.
A: What was the point of doing it in Lahore if all the celebrities came from Karachi and most of the Lahore ones were ignored🤐I missed seeing Babra Sharif, Faisal Rehman, Anjuman Begum and last not the least Shaan Shahid and many many more.
B: Punjab Nahin jaongi was one of the best and successful movie, it deserved all the awards. But how can it be ignored in the category of best actress? Mehwish was impeccable in her role. What I don’t understand is if it was a popular award then it was the highest grosser so most of the people went to see it, which in itself tells who people liked more🤔not for a second I am undermining Mahira, she is the biggest star we have, but Verna was an average film. Ok if the argument is her performance was stronger then it should have been under the category of critic award and if that is the case that it has mix of both then why not Uzma Hassan, as she was exceptional in Arth.
Read all the reviews people have taken out all their grudges for Shaan and Umaima in them(most of them I found unfair but kept quiet as it will be taken as Lahori defense,) Even all those critics couldn’t say anything about her and it was a big thing as she did a role done by Shabana Azmi and that also to perfection and still no one could criticize her. It is something.
So in my opinion it should have been Mehwish or Uzma. And what ever the reasons are results should not seem biised and rumors like “agar us ko award na Diya tu wo star nahi aye ga, should not be given a reason. Whatever personal grudges are devil should be given it’s due.
I will end it with, Shaan might not have been considered in nominations for whatever reason🤐but one cannot forget he is a Star. These functions should be above these petty politics, seniors should be given importance and respect. We have very few stars and only we can make more. Phew!!!this is a long post😱
Here is how people on social media shared their feedback on LSA 2018:
P:S this post is my personal opinion and I am not an authority
