Together they came up with a very simple, yet catchy song which Annie decided to call ‘Mahiya’. With Annie’s simple rendition and style of singing, along with catchy lyrics, she was encouraged by family and friends to take it a step further. The song became an instant hit, being ripped from the video and being sold privately, it became the most accessed Pakistani pop song on the internet for both 2005 and 2006. She won the ‘Most Wanted Song’, ‘Most Wanted Female 2006’ and also ‘The Most Wanted Female 2008’ at TMA (The Music Awards) by viewers choice and many more awards as her career progressed. Within the next year Bollywood Cinema moguls Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt expressed their desire for Annie’s Mahiya, for their upcoming movie ‘Awarapan’. She flew to India to record the song and video, before the movie release and consequently gained more fame and fan following from her neighbouring country than ever before. After the success of Mahiya, Annie started working with various charities, raising awareness for education and health. Also
