June’s albums have released, and I must say, it was even more exhausting than May!! And also, ‘Cabaret’ which was postponed from May to June, didn’t release in June, either! 😛

So in this awards session, the albums I will consider are — ‘Housefull 3’, ‘Do Lafzon Ki Kahani’, ‘Dhanak’, ‘Junooniyat’, ‘Te3n’, ‘Raman Raghav 2.0’, ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘Shorgul’, ‘Hai Apna Dil Toh Awara’ and ‘7 Hours To Go’ [‘Sultan’ to be counted in the July awards 🙂 ]

Let’s get going!
