Chupan Chupai leads LSA 2018 entertainment nominations


2017 has been an interesting year for the Pakistan film industry. While there has been an increase in the number of films released, they failed to make a mark albeit a few of them. However, on the other hand, the television industry really picked up their game in the last year and the TV shows which hit our screens were nothing short of amazing.

Pakistan’s most coveted awards, the Lux Style Awards, have just released their nominations and needless to say, the competition definitely is tough.

According to a press release, the nominee process was overseen by audit company Price Waterhouse Coopers and 12 of the 18 nominations are open for Viewer’s Choice voting, which can be done here.

The 10 fashion nominations are yet to be announced.
