Pakistan most prestigious and coveted Awards show, the LUX Style Awards held last week in the “Mughal City of Gardens” had many memorable performances from the divas of Lollywood and the Internationally acclaimed singing sensation Atif Aslam but the beautifully choreographed dance performance of the SOS Village kids with Atif Aslam and Aryan Aslam was clearly one of the many enjoyable highlights of the evening.
Atif Aslam and the energetic Aryaan Aslam, who has already performed in many stage plays, joined the SOS kids on the super hit song “Allah Dhuai Hai. These children who were brought into the lime light for the first time at the LUX Style Awards made many hearts smile. The perfect moves of the 23 kids, beautifully choreographed with young Sundus, stole the show with their abundant enthusiasm and graceful moves.
While performing at the LUX Style Awards the children were seen happy and enthusiastic, despite the late hour in the show. They watched the show unfold backstage on the big screen and by the time it was their turn to dance, after the Suzuki heavy bike did its introductory turn, they bounded on full of energy and grace, half the group dressed as angels in pink tulles and the other half as little devils with horns. The SOS Village, a place where children are given an environment to grow up healthy and well rounded works with a Vision that “Every child belongs to a family, every child grows with love, every child grows with respect, every child grows with security”.
Young Aryaan Aslam, who had performed in Nida Butt’s Karachi- The Musical the previous year, gave a virtuoso performance on Allah Duahi Hai and together the kids and Atif danced up a storm. Often individuals without a social identity are not given high profile attention especially on the media stage but the LUX Style Awards gave them an opportunity and platform to shine on the national stage. So good were they on stage that Show Director Frieha Altaf selected five of them to be a part of the grand finale where they performed but not just Atif but Aaminah Sheikh and Humaima Malik.
The LUX Style Awards for Excellence are given annually in the fields of Film, Music, TV and Fashion. The Awards were held earlier this month and will be broadcast on the ARY network after Eid.
