Fortunately, cutting the wait short the award show is all set to roll out the red carpet on April 9, 2015 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
Acclaimed for its contributions in promoting local entertainment media in Pakistan and abroad to absolutely new horizons, the scintillating awards ceremony is held every year to acknowledge and honour the contributions of actors, singers, play writers, directors and producers associated with the Network's plays/productions. In addition, there are awards in the categories of music and fashion, which from the beginning have been an immense success as considered by the viewers and media critics alike.
