Karachi, 16th Lux Style Awards were conducted on 19 April and this award show was different from the award show of last year. Hassan Shehryar Yaseen was the director of the award show but last year, the director was Farieah Altaf. There was the significant change in aesthetic and management and the show was continued till midnight and it was added with various hits and misses.
1. Atif Aslam mimicking Ali Zafar and Sajjad Ali
Atif Aslam is the leading singer and he prepared the special song. He also showed his comic side, when he mimicked the contemporary pop star singer, Ali Zafar. He sang the song in the heavy voice and after that he followed another leading pop singer, Sajjad Ali, by singing the song in the very melodious voice. The attendants sitting on the rear seats, they were blocked by the tall heads and the crazy hairdos sitting in the front rows. They thought that Ali Zafar and Sajjad Ali were singing the song instead of Atif Aslam in the mimicry style as they could not see the front stage clearly.
2. The ‘Teefa In Trouble’ couple provides a glimpse of the film
Ali Zafar has done the cinematic debut in Pakistan and it seemed that the pop star is anticipating more as last night. Then Ali Zafar and Maya Khan performed on a song taking from ‘Teefa in Trouble’. Zafar and Maya were swirled on the stage during the show.
3. ‘In Memoriam’ Segment
There is the segment during the show, which is called ‘In Memoriam’ segment, in which they remembered those contributors, who were died recently. It was the respectful segment to pay the tribute to the veterans and personalities like Junaid Jamshed and there was another inclusion of Kismat Baig and she was the unknown stage actor and dancer and she was brutally killed last year.
4. Osman Khalid Butt and Atif Aslam’s hilarious hosting
Osman Khalid Butt showed his sense of wit and the show was started with the interesting video package in which Butt and some other actors are doing welcome the audience to LSA flight and they promised not to kick out anyone for many reasons. After that Atif joined him as the translator and he took the digs at magnum opus Raasta of Sahir Lodhi and the absence of Saba Qamar. Like random celebrity living down the street, he had his own morning show to discuss the much hyped war between maker of your Raasta and media.
5. Cameo of Reema
