Several known names of the showbiz industry like Mahira Khan, Faisal Kapadia, Ayesha Omar, Zara Peerzada flocked to the comments section of Arooj’s post, wishing the artist for such an achievement.

Ankur Tewari, an Indian musician known for his work in movies like ‘Gully Boy’ and ‘Guilty’, also dropped a comment on her post that read “Go show them”.

It is certainly a proud moment for the country and the vocalist herself as she creates history, and be a representative at such a level.

It is pertinent to mention that Arooj who is a trained music producer, composer, and vocalist with three solo albums, bagged two nominations in the 64th annual Grammy Awards amid the likes of FINNEAS, Jimmie Allen, Olivia Rodrigo, and The Kid LAROI.
