So, last night all of Pakistan’s finest actors got together in Lahore for the Lux Style Awards. The event went by pretty smoothly, but Mahira Khan didn’t have the most pleasant of evenings, thanks to Javed Sheikh.
As video emerged of Mahira going up on stage to accept her award, something interesting happened

After accepting the award from Mawra Hocane, Mahira makes her way to greet Javed Sheikh. The veteran actor swoops in for a peck on the cheek but Mahira was NOT HAVING IT. In the video, you can see the uncomfortableness oozing out of her, she even moves her face away from the impending kiss. Sort of reminds you of the unwelcome kisses you get from rishtedaar you only see at dawats.
Pakistanis online didn’t let this one go!

Javed Sheikh was given a very obvious title

While some saw what Mahira did, full of hypocrisy
Strange. Very strange. He is probably old enough to be her Dad. Wasn’t she very comfortable with ciggy in mouth with a young actor from Ind

Truly, this entire thing screams AWKWARD
Awkward ? shameful act by senior citizen Javed sheikh https://t.co/jgcLgNkxca

But some people found comedy in this
Oho! Ayat al Kursi parh ke phoonk rahay hain.

Lessons were learned from this too

In the midst of it all, Bollywood comparisons were made

However, the general consensus was anger

Now that the entire day has almost passed, and the entire Twitter world has commented on the matter, Mahira Khan gave her opinion on the matter
I have just woken up to such silly stuff floating around. It’s good to be aware and have an opinion but for Gods sake don’t use anything and everything to make news. Javed Sheikh of all people! He is a legend and a mentor to all of us in this industry. Would vouch for him always.

Javed Sheikh definitely is a film industry legend, however, people really attacked the guy after this video came up.
What do you think about this?
