Finally Club Six, where Dhamaal holds the longest running residency, won Best Club and Maneesh's other residency Dub Mission won Best Dub Club.
These developments are a clear indication of Dhamaal and its artists making significant headway into the mainstream, while continuing to be a very underground and cutting edge showcase of South Asian hybrid culture.
