Ceremony information

In early April 2017, it was announced that Hassan Sheheryar Yasin was the show's director instead of Frieha Altaf. Altaf had previously been the director for Lux Style Awards since its inception in 2002 except for the 3rd Lux Style Awards event.[8] On 9 April 2017, in a press conference the show's director Hassan Sheheryar Yasin announced that Atif Aslam would host the ceremony. Aslam expressed that it felt good to host Lux Style Awards.[9] Osman Khalid Butt was chosen as the scriptwriter for the award ceremony.[10]

In his acceptance speech for the Best TV Actor award, Ahsan Khan paid tribute to Mashal Khan, who was lynched by a charged mob over blasphemy allegations a few days earlier.[11] During the ceremony, the Turkish actor Halit Ergenç was presented the International Icon award. It was the first time an international celebrity was honoured at the LSAs.[7]

M. Nadeem J. was the TV director for LSA in 2017 and has been since 2005. He was also the producer of the show in 2017 and 2018.
