Ever since the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, suggested that people of Pakistan should watch the Turkish TV show Ertugrul to get in touch with their Islamic roots the show has blown up in Pakistan
PTV released an Urdu dubbed version of the show and it broke records by getting millions of views in a month, the show successfully became one of Pakistan’s favourites!
Pakistanis have been exposed to Turkish content before too, with hit shows like “Ishq-e-mamnu” our audience is familiar with foreign content but what sets this series apart is that it revolves around Islamic history, something we don’t see a lot of shows about.
With the entire country binge-watching the show all at once came a huge interest in what these actors were like in real life. Safe to say that the Pakistani stans flooded the comments of the actors Instagrams!
All this time went by and now finally, Esra Bilgiç, who plays the role of Halime in the series has responded to her Pakistani audience!
She said “I would like to say thank you with all my heart for your precious compliments. Your support makes me really happy. I’m waiting and excited to meet you all in Pakistan after this period. Take good care of yourselves. Stay in peace and health. 🌹 – Esra”
This shows that all the people that have actually been nice in the comments of these actors have actually touched their hearts!
We can’t wait to see Esra Bilgiç in Pakistan!
