Mehwish Hayat’s ‘Punjab Nahi Jaungi’ won the accolade for Best Film at Lux Style Awards (LSA) 2018, held in Lahore on February 20th, 2018. The movie has already outperformed other releases at the box office in terms of the massive profits it has earned within six months of its release since November 2017.
