A number of celebrities are boycotting the Lux Style Awards in protest but filmmaker Jami has taken his protest a step further. He has dumped the three awards he previously received on the street outside his house.

Earlier, the acclaimed director had posted on his Facebook account that he and his Azad Film Company would be putting all their Lux Style Awards outside his gate.

Jami had also tweeted against LSA, stating the awards should be titled Lux Style Assault for nominating an alleged sexual harasser.

He has been vocal in his defence of victims of sexual harassment for the past year, ever since singer Meesha Shafi accused fellow artist Ali Zafar of harassment in April 2018. In past, he even announced that his production company Azad Film would no longer work with any individual who supports those accused of sexual misconduct.

He was joined in his protest by makeup artist Fatima Nasir, who rejected her LSA nomination on Wednesday.

In a Facebook post, Nasir said, “I stand in solidarity with those who have withdrawn from the awards before me and we need to keep raising our voice against sexual harassment until the industry, and the world, is a safe place for women to work.”

Model Emaan Suleman, Shafi, the band The Sketches, clothing brand Generations and makeup artist Saima Bargfrede turned down their Lux Style Award nominations in the protest as well.

    LSA & Hum awards both are promoters of obscenity in our society. The owner of Him TV & other products even dramas are all posing woman folks as sex object and promote Divorce on Top Priority..PEMRA need to open its eyes and start regulating derogatory substance from our TV.. World is changing on very track & innocent minds are greatest receptors of such material..Thinkers, writers and Critics must point thier fingers to discourage this vulgarity especially Maulan Tariq Jamil who has highest number of audience in Pakistan & abroad.
