Looks like Pakistanis aren’t the only ones with a love for Turkish television. The craze seems to have crossed the border, with Indian actor Swara Bhasker taking to Twitter to rave about her new favourite Turkish TV show Muhtesem Yuzyil.
The Veere Di Wedding actor tweeted, "Discovered Muhtesem Yuzyil /Magnificent Century Turkish series on Ottoman emperor Sulaiman the Magnificent and consort Hurrem Sultana last night!”
She went on to talk about the belated discovery, writing, “I’m 10 years too late to this party but I’m hooked! Another matter that time has lost all meaning and spent the whole night bingeing.”

Bhasker will be seen next in murder-mystery Mimamsa, in which she will play the role of an investigative officer, according to The Indian Express. The actor said in a statement about the film, “The experience of shooting for the movie was one of its kind as it kept me invested throughout the shoot, and I am sure that the viewers will be too when they get to watch it.
She went on to speak about how this was her first shooting since a lockdown was first imposed in India. “This was also the first film I shot for after lockdown last year, and that makes the movie extremely special to me, and it helped me have a sense of gratitude for the work I do. Without revealing much, I am just going to say that the movie will take you on a journey that is layered, is mysterious, and thought-provoking,” she shared.
