Turkish series Diriliş: Ertuğrul has got immense appreciation in Pakistan, but it has become an important debate topic.
Several Pakistani celebrities appreciated the series and spoke in its favor. Whereas, some artists seemed quite unhappy, as they claim that the series is affecting the Pakistani entertainment industry.
Actress Mahira Khan joined the debate and appreciated Diriliş: Ertuğrul. In an interview with HSY, she said, “I have no reservations about it [Ertugrul]. I have not seen it yet.”
She also said that these series are not very expensive, as they are not new and have been airing for a long time. Some channels will keep buying them, but this will not create a problem. She said, “Let them come. Let it play.”
“I am so happy that PTV, which was never considered by Pakistani viewers, is now getting all these views from fans of the show.”
“If our content is good then people will definitely watch it. People will also watch those [Turkish] shows if they are good. And that’s not an issue.”
Lollywood star Shan Shahid has appreciated the popular Turkish series Diriliş: Ertuğrul. He had earlier criticized Pakistan Television for airing the series.
However, he has watched Diriliş: Ertuğrul and has called it a classic masterpiece.
He appreciated the director, producer, cast, and technicians who worked hard to “make this epic”.
