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.

In a tweet, she thanked Eman Suleman and the brands that followed in her footsteps, before announcing her request to be removed from the nominee’s list.
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.”

Mein is a song about finding our true self. Being aligned with a higher purpose. Being our own hero and being enough. I wrote it at a particularly difficult time in my life. When I needed to be all those things,
Mein stands nominated for the best song at the Lux Style Awards 2019. The irony is not lost on me given the current circumstances and I would kindly request that my name and work be removed from the list of nominees”.,

However, Emaan Suleman had boycotted the award show already and in a more direct statement on her Instagram.

Here’s the video
