Since the Turkish drama Ertugrul became famous in Pakistan, opinions have been flying left, right, and center. While many commend Prime Minister Imran Khan’s idea to promote Islamic history on national television PTV. Others criticized this act as a promotion of foreign content.
Many Pakistani celebrities have been sharing their two cents on the viral debate, where some appreciate the gesture others think of it as an attack on their career.
Now Pakistani actress Mahira Khan has come forward with her opinion of Turkish drama Ertugrul.
Recently in an interview with HSY, when asked about her stance on Ertugrul, Mahira said, “I have no reservations about it and I have not seen it yet.”
Further, she said, ” I discussed this issue with Humayun Saeed and in my opinion, these dramas aren’t expensive to purchase as they have already run for many years.”
I don’t truly understand the mechanics of business but having said that I feel why not? Let them come, let it play.”
“I am happy for PTV channel because everyone stopped watching PTV and now everyone is watching their favorite drama on it,” she added.
While some of Mahira’s colleagues also are seen showing positive responses, others were not so nice about their opinions about broadcasting Ertugurl.
‘No to Foreign content’
Actor Yasir Hussain was one who didn’t appreciate foreign content being broadcasted on National TV.
“When your brother is fired from his bank job, sister is out of school, and father is laid off from his job, and instead Turkish people are enrolled instead of them, then you might know why I’m saying this.”
The actor said.
