The ARY Film Awards celebrated a few of the best films to come out of Pakistani cinema in 2015 — and in style. Held at the Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai, the award ceremony flew out the stars, who glittered in their best on the night.
Jawani Phir Nahi Aani was the night’s big winner, with its cast and crew sweeping up a majority of the awards. Moor stood out in the technical awards category, and standout performances from films like Karachi Se Lahore, Jalaibee and Wrong No were also rewarded.
Here’s a list of the night’s winners:
The Best Actor awards went to JPNA’s Humayun Saeed and Sohai Ali Abro. Aisha Khan and Hamza Ali Abbasi also picked up the Best Supporting Actor accolades for their performance in the film.
