Ceremony informationEdit

The drama awards were a follow-up of the IM Music awards, art of the INDUS NETWORK, which were held at the D.H.A Golf Club. The stage was set against a giant plasma screen and for the first time a live orchestra had been arranged.

The four series competing for the most prestigious honours were 'Maa Aur Mamta', 'Ambulance', 'Mera Naam Hai Mohabbat' and 'Karachi law'. Kamran Qureshi’s drama series Maa Aur Mamta was considered most successful with seven awards; Qureshi brought his mother Shagufta Yousuf to receive it on his behalf. Natasha D’souza received her trophy for the best supporting actress in 'Ambulance". Shafi Mohammad won the best supporting actor for his role in 'Maa aur Mamta'. The best actress in drama series was Shehla Qureshi for her role in "Mehak" while Humayun Saeed won the equivalent for Mujrim.

Further entertainment was provided by Humayun and Sonu, both of whom danced, Sonu to Atif Aslam's remix song 'Woh Lamhe'. Maa and Mamta also won an extra title when Sohail Asghar was conferred a special award for his role of a eunuch called Saima in Murad.

A tribute was performed for Najam-uz-Zaman, who had died shortly previous to the event in Canada[year needed]. Najam was a prominent figure in Indus Music and was also one of Indus TV's founding members, besides the current owner, Ghazanfar.

The best serial writer award went to Umera Ahmed for Wajood-e-Laraib’. The best actress in a drama serial went to Afreen for role in Azal, for which the male counterpart was Faisal Rehman for his contributions in 'Azal' and the best serial was "Wajood-e-Laraib." Adnan Siddiqui, Faisal Qureshi and Fahad Mustafa received the trophy. Adnan dedicated the trophy to his newborn baby, while the rest thanked the crowd for their involvement.

Qavi Khan received a standing ovation for his contributions to the TV world with the late Shahzad Khalil. Ghazanfar himself presented this award to Khalil’s wife Badar Khalil.[1][2][3]
