Hosting the Lux Style Awards in 2016, Ali Zafar, proving himself to be a man of many talents and constant reinvention, returns to the 16th edition presenting and performing a new rendition that he exclusively wrote and compose for the award ceremony this year.

Gearing up for his lead role as Teefa in Ahsan Rahim’s romantic action comedy, the painter-turned-performer, actor, singer-songwriter reveals that reinvention, which he acquired over time, is like second nature to him, as he always looks for something new before he loses interest out of sheer boredom of repeating the same.

With the red carpet kicking off at 4:30 PM on Wednesday, April 19, followed by the main show itself, the 16th Lux Style Awards are scheduled to air on Geo TV on May 20, 2017.
