Earlier, this year, a Turkish delegation comprising of Diriliş: Ertuğrul executive producer Kamal Tekdin and actor Celal Al met the Prime Minister Imran Khan, Pakistani actors Adnan Siddiqui and Humayun Saeed, along with the federal ministers Shibli Faraz and Shaheryar Afridi among others in Islamabad.
The meeting discussed in detail a joint venture featuring actors from both countries. According to an APP report, this venture would take the form of a series based on the renowned sub-continent personality Turk Lala from the Khilafat Movement.
PM Imran Khan had then urged Pakistan’s film and television industry to produce informative local narratives for the youth which could serve as an alternative for Ertuğrul and the substandard, glamourised content which is being produced already.
“If the Pakistani film and drama industry presents quality local production, it will not only progress but also provide the youth with the alternative of substandard and glamourised content, which will be welcomed like Ertuğrul,” he had said.
