The Oscar-winning director Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy criticized actor Feroze Khan’s nomination for the Lux Style Awards LSA 2022. Sharmeen announced that in protest, she will return her lifetime achievement award back to Unilever which she had awarded in 2012.

Lux Style Awards announced the final list of nominees for the 21st LSA awards in which Feroze Khan has been nominated for the award of best TV actor male (Viewer’s choice) for his drama serial “Khuda Aur Mohabbat”.

After knowing this, Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy took to her Instagram and shared a note in which she wrote against the nomination of Feroze Khan following his domestic abuse controversy as alleged by his ex-wife Aliza Sultan.

 

As a society, we must stand together against domestic violence and we must call out those who provide platforms to abusers.

She criticized Unilever and Lux saying, “Unilever and Lux have done a disservice to the awards and to society and it is not ok for them to allow the celebration of abusers”.

Later, LSA gave a statement related to finals submissions of the nominations list in which they announced that they were not excluding any submissions and nominations.

“As part of our third party, the independent and transparent voting process, which is audited end to end by PricewaterhouseCoopers, LSA cannot participate in short-listing, vetting or excluding any submissions or nominations.”

Further LSA gave a statement, “Respecting the freedom and divert of audience views, and does not regulate or limit engagement (except in cases of content with obscene or inappropriate language) on our social media platforms.”
