It’s been a strong year for Hum TV as the channel has bagged 16 out of 30 of the Lux Style Awards nominations for excellence in television.

O Rungreza, which we are all following with great fanfare, has secured 5 nominations – a maximum by any one play. One would have expected an O Rungreza nomination for Best TV Actor too as Bilal Abbas Khan, Noman Ijaz, Hamza Firdous and even Omair Rana have delivered exceptional performances in the serial. While they are not all lead characters, it would be fair to say that even Adnan Siddiqui is not a singular protagonist in Sammi, but in the absence of a Best Supporting Actor category, he belongs here as does the O Rungreza male cast. That said, Adnan’s performance as Rashid in Sammi was stellar and he’ll be fighting it out with Ahad Raza Mir in Yakeen Ka Safar. It’s a Viewer’s Choice Award, so the fans will decide!

LSA recount: Baaghi & O Rungreza pick up more nominations

The uber-popular Yakeen Ka Safar, which gave people the irresistible on-screen couple of Ahad Raza Mir and Sajal Aly, has two nominations for the actors – Best TV Actor and Best TV Actress, whereas other TV serials like Alif Allah Aur Insaan, Sammi and Sang e Mar Mar have several nods each.

That’s quite an accomplishment for the channel, that will be battling it out at the Lux Style Awards, scheduled to take place in Lahore at the end of February. The biggest competition Hum TV faces is from Urdu 1’s Baaghi, the courageous biopic tailored around internet sensation Qandeel Baloch’s life and death. Starring Saba Qamar in the lead role, Baaghi puts up a strong fight. May the best dramas win!
