LUX Style Awards’16 were hosted by Mahira Khan and nominations were announced at a gleaming event. Nominees were announced for a diversity of categories, series from Model of the Year to Best Film Actor.
Along with these nominations, Ahmad Ali Butt was acknowledged for his role in Jawani Phir Nahi Aani, and was proclaimed as a nominee for Best Film Actor. The comical man though, has asked the jury to shift his nomination from the category of Best Actor to Best Supporting Actor in its place.
While being interviewed, Ahmad said,” I am truly honored and thankful to be nominated in the Best Actor category for my film Jawani Phir Nahi Aani. However, I believe that my role in the movie was of a supporting actor and not the main lead, where I have currently been nominated and therefore I have officially requested the team and the respected jury members at LUX Style Awards to look into this matter and move my nomination in the appropriate category of Best Supporting Actor.”
Ahmad has sent an email to the panel of judges, requesting them to modify his nomination. Although Fareshteh Aslam, the person who is in charge of LSA’s media management said, “I haven’t seen the email but I have heard that he has approached the jury. A committee reviews all the nominations after they have been announced anyway. So, if there has been any mistake, it will be rectified.”
Was it modesty by Ahmed Ali Butt to come forward and ask for his name to be mention to another list of nominee or was it a huge mistake by the LUX Style Awards managements, changing the nomination will decide the truth now about the shift of nominee.
