Asim Raza, famous Pakistani director has expressed his disappointment with the Lux Style Awards Nominations this year.
The list of nominees did not go down well with the him as he said:
“All I can say right now is that I am most disheartened to see the list of nominations. First of all I am most intrigued to know who are these jurors who are chosen to judge a complex category like Films & Film Music? Quality and excellence in the field of films cannot be judged by just anyone. It is a specialised field just like any other science if not more complex. These judgements cannot be made on the basis of popularity only. A juror’s understanding of this craft needs to be a little higher then that.”
He cites examples of Adeel Husain and Shehereyar Munawar for not having been nominated in the Best Actor category.
“In case of Ho Mann Jahaan there are some major shocks which I am still trying to get over. For example, Adeel Husain’s name not being there in the lead actor category is a complete shocker for me. Not only in HMJ but even in Dobara Phir Se, he performed remarkably well.
