She also shared a video message followed by the previous post, she expressed her happiness and flew all over the moon with endless joy.

“Oh my God! Udhero Na has been nominated for a Grammy. Congratulations to me and to Anoushka Shankar, Maeve Gilchrist, and Nadje Noordhuis.” She recalled how four “badass women” came together to play a song that she wrote when she was merely 15 and it’s finally getting the recognition it deserves.

I’m Very Emotional, Arooj Aftab

Arooj said, “So, I’m very emotional and very glad and I’m really, really, just, I don’t even know. I’m in this hall of a ship, we’re about to perform in about 20 minutes or so. I don’t know how I’m going to do that but this is great. So, thank you,” she concluded.

Aftab captioned this post, “Congratulations to me! [Laughs] Yes, congratulations to you and Anoushka Shankar.”

Even Sarwat Gilani, Ushna Shah, and other celebrities congratulated her in the comment section.  Last month Arooj Aftab submitted her song “Udhero Na” to the Grammys.
