The recent Hum Style Awards (HSA18) have come under fire for including tasteless jokes at the expense of their guests, according to actor Feroze Khan. The star-studded annual Hum Style Awards took place in Toronto, Canada last month and was aired on television this weekend, with almost everyone from the industry present. And while the show is meant to be the epitome of class, it seems as though its scripted jokes haven’t gone down too well with Feroze, who feels personally victimized.
During the ceremony, actors Annie Jaffery and Ahmed Ali Akbar introduced the annual show, before talking about this year’s most loved on-screen couples
The actors mentioned how Iqra Aziz and Farhan Saeed were the new on-screen jodi everyone was talking about, as were Sajal Aly and Ahad Raza Mir. Ahmed then jokingly mentioned Alizey and Feroze next, to which Annie said that the list was only for on-screen couples and that Alizey and Feroze were married in real life.
Ahmed then responded, “so marriage is based on real events,” to which Annie said “I hope marriage is on real events”
The camera then
conveniently momentarily switched to Alizey’s reaction…
Awkward and cringy AF
Feroze took to Twitter to express his anger at the joke made, before warning that he will “boycott that particular platform right there”
He tagged #HSA18 at the end, warning all other “award show[s]” that he won’t associate himself with them if they were to use his family for comic effect.
Next time ever if an award show includes my family in any of their jokes. I will boycott that particular platform right there.
I’m a part of this not my family watch before you speak #HSA18

People agreed with Feroze, denouncing the credibility of the awards show
That's like a gentleman. Family comes first 👌

TOTALLY Agreed! When I was watching it I was like why they're including someone who is not from the industry, #HSA18 this platform should be aware to do this thing again!

You’ll find the rather cringe-worthy moment at the eighth minute…
Do you think Feroze’s tweet is justified? What are your thoughts on the scripted comments made by Ahmed Ali Akbar and Annie Jaffery?
