Turkish television show Diriliş: Ertuğrul in the past few weeks has taken Pakistan by storm, ever since an Urdu dubbed version started airing locally. With even Prime Minister Imran Khan raising the show, Ertugrul has become the talk of the town amongst everyone, including our celebrities.

Actor Hamza Ali Abbasi recently expressed his love for the show in a very unique fashion. In a video recorded by his wife Naimal Khawar, Abbassi is playing the theme song of the show on a guitar.

PM Imran Khan last month in a video where he is interested with media personnel, expressed excitement over the show being aired in Pakistan. According to the PM, it is a must-watch show for the youth of the country.

“We’ve always had content from Hollywood and Bollywood which was then being showcased here. A third end culture was being promoted. That’s why I want our youth to know the difference between our values and theirs.”

He went on to add, “We have a culture with romance and history as well, however, it is also filled with Islamic values. Sadly, the content from Bollywood is full of vulgarity, which wasn’t the case three or four decades ago.”

Narrissa | 3 years ago | Reply It’s new it’s fresh it’s one of a kind. The show first aired in New Zealand last year on Netflix. Since watching the first episode I have loved the show. I love history and here in NZ we have a lot of cultural history to share. The series history based show mixed with comedy, Romance, action, thriller, lies, deceit makes this show an award winning tv show. It has everything. This series certainly had me on edge on my chair, not only did it bring me to tears at times it brought me laughter and knowledge and a clear sense of history. Thank you for bringing us a wonderful program.
