Saba Qamar Did Not Attend Lux Style Awards
No award function is complete without generating some controversies. One controversy that made headlines was Saba Qamar not attending Lux Style Awards in 2017.
Here is what she had to see the Lux Style Awards.
“Although I am nominated for three different plays, I will not be attending the LSAs as a protest. They never bothered to honor me during the past 12 years, and now that I have the Bollywood stamp, everyone is acknowledging me all of a sudden.”
