Meesha Shafi doesn’t want to be a part of the upcoming event Lux Style Award
Lux Style award is facing a lot because of nominating an accused sexual harasser this year. Multiple celebrities called out LSA for this. Eman Suleman led this from the front and gave up on her Lux Style nomination for this very reason. And now, Meesha followed her as well. Meesha asked the organizers of LSA to remove her name from the nomination list of the Best Song category.
Here’s what Meesha Tweeted

“I want to thank Eman Suleman. What she, Generation and Saima Bargfrede have said and done is what I consider my award.
In a perfect world, I would love to see women retain their space in the industry while being safe, so that the cost of speaking up is minimized, or even done away with altogether. A cost which is all too high at present” added Meesha. “Our boycotts should not overshadow our achievements. With brave women like these, I feel optimistic about getting there one day.”
However, Emaan Suleman had boycotted the award show already and in a more direct statement on her Instagram.
Here’s the video
