It has been more than a week that Lux Style Awards has been held but the controversies that are born out afterwards don’t seem to die away soon.
The controversy that received most attention revolves around the category of Best Actress (Films) – while Mahira Khan has been awarded for her performance in Veerna, many think that that award belongs to Mehwish Hayat who has received applaud for her brilliant act in Punjab Nahi Jaungi.
While celebrities, media persona and twitterati all are busy in presenting their take on the story, you will be surprised to know who has actually taken away the award to home. Well, it is none other than Humayun Saeed who currently has the possession of the Best Actress trophy.
“I’ll tell you what, there’s no winner in the Best Actress category. Not even Mahira. Because I have the Best Actress trophy!” Humayun said laughingly during an exclusive chat with Something Haute. And that’s true. Due to some mix up, Humayun ended up bringing home the Best Actress statuette instead of the Best Actor trophy.
Humayun also shared a picture of the award with the publication that he has mistakenly taken away with him.
When the actor has been asked to comment on the controversy he tackles it diplomatically.
“But no, on a serious note, just because I think Mehwish deserved the award doesn’t mean I think Mahira got the award because of any bias. She’s won it fair and square based on the number of votes she got,” he added. “When someone asks me or Nadeem (Baig) – and a lot of journalists have – if we think Mehwish deserved to win, our response is that of course she did. I mean what else are we supposed to say? But our responses somehow get misconstrued or perhaps misunderstood and there’s conjecture that we are against Mahira winning or have a problem with her, which definitely is not the case.”
