Lux Style Awards 2020: Nominations snub MPTH OST

The previous year may not be a good one for many industries but it certainly was a fabulous one for our drama industry as it witnessed the unprecedented success of drama serial Meray Paas Tum Ho. Great acting, immaculate script, and flawless direction made MPTH conspicuous. Its fan following spread like a contagion. But what made the drama an instant success was its soundtrack. The song was heard everywhere since the airing of the first episode. The recent Lux Style Awards Nominations has failed to nominate one of the greatest and the most popular soundtrack the drama industry has ever produced.

Lux Style Awards since its inception was not taken seriously by the film and TV industry. Sponsored by a Unilever brand, Lux Style Awards lacked credibility and prestige. The consistency of the awards has now garnered repute and weightage. At this point in the Awards journey of recognition, Lux has made a blunder of epic proportions. Omitting the MPTH OST from Best Original Soundtrack TV is no less than criminal negligence on the part of the Lux Style jurors and administration.
