Seems like the hoo-ha surrounding popular Turkish show, Dirilis: Ertugrul isn't dying anytime soon.
Many actors have shared their contradicting thoughts on the show including Reema Khan, Shaan Shahid, Asad Siddiqui, Osman Khalid Butt and others. Other than the actors, controversial writer Khalilur Rehman Qamar also shared his two cents on the show.
The Meray Paas Tum Ho famed scriptwriter shared that he was apparently in touch with Humayun Saeed to work on a Pakistani adaptation of the show.
While Humayun denied being involved in the project, Twitter has a few thoughts on who could be a perfect fit for the protagonist of the show.
Lo and behold! Netizens think Hamza Ali Abbasi could portray Ertugrul Ghazi well if a Pakistani version of the famous show was to be made.
