Actor Ahsan Khan has refused to boycott the Lux Style Awards, and stands in support for the platform. Several nominees had earlier withdrawn from the LSA in protest of the nomination of an alleged harasser.

“I find it impossible to jump on to the bandwagon and criticise Lux Style Awards,” he said in his Instagram post on Friday.

Khan said the platform has always supported the film and drama industry and gave him the ‘best actor award’ when he worked in a play that highlighted the issue of child sexual abuse.  He said they recognized his work in Udaari for putting a sensitive issue to the forefront.

“They gave me an opportunity to talk about the lynching of Mashal Khan. And they gave me an opportunity to present a song about the harassment cause,” he wrote.

He thinks it is wrong to make a judgment, asking people to trust the legal system before condemning people based on “accusations, conjecture and gossip”, adding that it would be a lawless society if we start accusing everyone.

Filmmaker Jami, model Rubaab Ali and Emaan Suleman, Meesha Shafi, folk-rock band The Sketches, clothing brand Generations, Fatima Nasir and makeup artist Saima Bargfrede turned down their Lux Style Award nominations in protest as well.
