Soon after the list of nominations was issued by the Lux Style Awards 2019, there started a controversy as many of the celebrities have withdrawn their names from the nominations stating that they don’t want to be nominated with an alleged sexual harasser.
During a press release, it was being stated by Unilever that any issue relating to the sexual harassment or misconduct would be taken seriously. The jury for LSA has been set purely and independently.
While discussing on the topic of Ali Zafar and Meesha Shafi, Unilever passed a statement which reads, “The members of the Jury for 2019 were chosen by an independent Board of Governors. Neither the Lux Style Awards nor Unilever Pakistan has ever intruded in the Jury’s independence. And we continue to respect their decisions,” read the company’s statement.
