Turkey has always been considered as the ‘bridge between the East and the West’. Apart from the breathtaking views, cultural heritage and baklava, in the past few months, the country has gained immense popularity in Pakistan through its period drama Diriliş: Ertuğrul.
Ertuğrul has surpassed expectations and ratings in the past few months and it continues to make a huge impact in Pakistan. Not only is the story different, but the way it engages with millions of Muslims across the world is truly commendable.
Taking to his Instagram, the actor shared a video of the monument and wrote,
“One must be marooned on an island to not know about Ertuğrul Ghazi now that he’s moved out of boring history books to the legendary Turkish series Ertuğrul.”
“So much is the frenzied fan following in Pakistan that the period drama captures most of the conversations these days,” he added.
