It is not just the Pakistani actors and models that are making it big in India, this year our very own Zoe Viccaji released her debut album in India, titled as “Dareeche.”

At the Indian Recording Arts Awards on May 30th this year, Zoe Viccaji’s debut album ‘Dareeche’ was awarded Best Mixed Album (Non-Film). The IRA Awards focus on bringing to light under-appreciated technical expertise in music, and in particular recognising the work of independent artists.

Zoe took to Facebook to acknowledge and celebrate the win:
