n a recent turn of events, renowned Pakistani actress Sonya Hussyn made headlines by choosing not to attend the 22nd Lux Style Awards (LSA) in Karachi, despite receiving a nomination. While many of her colleagues graced the prestigious event, Sonya’s absence raised eyebrows and sparked a conversation about the fairness of award distribution in the Pakistani entertainment industry.
During an appearance on Waseem Badami’s show, “Har Lamha Purjosh,” Sonya Hussyn candidly explained her decision, saying, “I am not coming from the awards; actually, I could not go there, so I came here with all my preparations. I don’t attend the award functions. I don’t know why, but I don’t like to go to the awards; it is useless to attend the awards.”
Addressing the attendees of the LSA, Sonya remarked, “Those who are attending the award shows must be getting awards.” She further added, “Yes, I think they were communicated about getting awards by the team. Those who are going without receiving any award will be going because of their love for attending shows or something like that. I, instead, got ready and came to your show.”
Sonya Hussyn has previously criticized the Lux Style Awards, notably in 2021 when her drama “Saraab” received no nominations, calling it “disappointing.” Despite some fans’ criticism of her apparent inconsistency, her decision to skip this year’s LSA reflects her ongoing concerns about the fairness of such events.
Sonya Hussyn’s absence from the Lux Style Awards fuels the debate on award show transparency in Pakistan’s entertainment industry. Whether her stance leads to more discussions and changes remains uncertain. In a talent-driven landscape, her choice raises vital questions about the industry’s future and its stars’ values.
