Lux Style Awards 2018 has made a lot of noise on social media, but not entirely for pleasant reasons.
What happened was that, 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 comfortable with this. She even moves her face away from the impending kiss.

So this is the kind of talk that took over the internet
Oho! Ayat al Kursi parh ke phoonk rahay hain.

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

Here’s what Mahira Khan said to clear all misconceptions
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 also responded to the matter in a hilarious way
The selfie was posted by CEO of ARY Digital, Jerjees Seja on his Instagram account as a delightful response to the entire social debacle
“Social media can create anything out of nothing but there are very few people who can laugh at it like you do,” Jerjees Seja captioned.
And here’s how people have been responding to the picture now
We are glad that the actor has brushed off the incident with such grace.
