Khalil ur Rehman Qamar is working on a script similar to 'Diriliş: Ertuğrul'

Popular writer says he also called Humayun Saeed and they both seem to be on the same page

Entertainment Desk May 12, 2020

Khalilur Rehman Qamar has always been in the limelight for one reason or another. While the famous writer has been criticised for his stance on topics such as feminism, Qamar is now working on a script similar to the popular Turkish period drama, Dirilis: Ertugrul.

In an interview with a local TV channel, the Meray Paas Tum Ho writer shared that he had already spoken to Humayun Saeed and the duo will be working on a show similar to the famous Turkish drama.

Responding to the host's query about working on something like Dirilis: Ertugrul, Qamar asserted, "Of course, we are definitely thinking to make something like this. Three days ago, I have spoken to Humayun Saeed about this and we have decided to make something."

The Kaaf Kangana director went on to add, "I have been asking him to work on something like this for the last twelve years but the problem is we have limitations. We do not have enough facilities, otherwise, we have brilliant actors."

When the host congratulated Qamar on even thinking about working on a script as grand as the Turkish epic, the writer quickly interrupted and said, "I am not just thinking about it, I am going to start penning the script from tomorrow."

He should write dramas like ertugul

... | 3 years ago | Reply Please no. This man knows NOTHING about Islam. Such a drama based on Islamic history should not be recreated and that too by the likes of someone like him. He quotes Quranic Ayats without context just for his own agenda without searching up the meaning and explanation of such beautiful ayats. This man is sick. He is anything but pro Islamic. He's ruining the minds of our Pakistani Youth by portraying cheating/ home wrecking women. And I bet you he will make sure his version of the drama's focus is on that solely. What is he teaching our youth? What is he teaching the young girls of our religion and country? Islam has portrayed women as strong, respectable, loyal and he portrays them as home wreckers, cheaters, and weak. Shame on him. Even spitting down on such a man is an act too noble for his worthless, disrespectful self. He is not even worthy of that. Sad and pathetic.
