Pakistani actress Saba Qamar will not be going to the Lux Style Awards in protest as the actress claims that she has been recently noticed by the awards owing to her ‘Bollywood stamp’.
Saba Qamar is one of Pakistan’s leading actresses who has not only done well for herself over the past decade in drama serials but will be seen in less than a month for the first time in reel life opposite Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan.
As per a local report, the actress has now stated that she will be boycotting the upcoming Lux Style Awards since she had not received acclaim or recognition from the awards despite working for more than a decade as an actress. “Although I am nominated for three different plays, I will not be attending the LSAs as a protest,” she said.
“They never bothered to honour me during the past 12 years and now that I have the Bollywood stamp, everyone is acknowledging me all of a sudden,”.
Saba Qamar added. Saba also said that since 2014, no brand or award show had approached her despite her acting talents. Now, the case was quite difference ever since she had returned from India.
“Now that I have come back from India, every brand and every award show is running after me. It’s almost as if they just noticed my presence,” she said. The 16th Lux Style Awards will be held on 19th April. It will be interesting to see whether or not the actress win in the categories she is nominated or not.
Pakistani actress Saba Qamar recently revealed that she would not be attending the much coveted Lux Style Awards (LSA) in protest and that she does not believe in the credibility of the show.
Qamar recently appeared in an Indian movie alongside Indian actor Irfan Khan and her acting in the movie is being widely applauded.
Qamar believes that she has been nominated for her acting skills in the LSAs just because now she has the Bollywood stamp on her.
“Although I am nominated for three different plays, I will not be attending the LSAs as a protest,” Qamar told local reporters in a telephonic conversation. “They never bothered to honour me during the past 12 years and now that I have the Bollywood stamp, everyone is acknowledging me all of a sudden.”
The trailer of Qamar’s debut Bollywood movie called Hindi Medium left everyone speechless as the actress has shown some great acting skills in it. Ever since the trailer hit the waves, everyone in the entertainment industry has been raving about Qamar’s performance and what a great talent she possesses.
However, to Qamar, all of this is plain hypocrisy as the actress believes that she has done similar performances in Pakistani plays as well, but no one ever appreciated that.
“I have been working in the Pakistani entertainment industry since 2004 and no brand or award show has ever approached me in all this time. Now that I have come back from India, every brand and every award show is running after me. It’s almost as if they just noticed my presence,” she stated.
The 16th Lux Style Awards are due to take place on April 19 and artists have been nominated for 28 different categories.
