Pakistanis are now way too busy to watch any typical drama series as they are binge-watching popular Turkish drama Ertuğrul during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Soon after Pakistan Television (PTV) started to air the Urdu-dubbed version of the drama, many actors as well as viewers took to social media platforms to share their views about the Turkish series. As the show gained popularity in the country, rumours were in the air that some producers are thinking to make a Pakistani remake of Ertuğrul with local stars playing the lead cast.
Recently, Twitter was stormed with the tweets by the fans of Turkish drama who thought that Hamza Ali Abbasi and his wife Naimal Khawar could be the perfect couple to play lead characters Ertuğrul Ghazi and Halima Sultan. Here’s what the Pakistani people say.
