And The Award Goes To…

And the award goes to… these are the most heard and said words in any award ceremony which brings excitement and disappointment amongst nominees and audience. ARY Digital Network, the largest satellite television network of Pakistan recently held the biggest film awards ceremony in Dubai, the ARY Film Awards 2016 (AFA16).

Glad to see my favourite movie JPNA bagging most of the awards that evening.
