Raising excitement since the project was first announced in 2021, the Pakistan-Turkey collaborative historical series Kudüs Fatihi Selahaddin Eyyubi (Saladin: The Conquerer of Jerusalem) is finally set to grace television screens in Pakistan. With a cast featuring Turkish actors in key roles, the drama began airing in Turkey on November 13, generating significant buzz among viewers.

However, Pakistani audiences are eagerly awaiting its Urdu-dubbed version, which will soon be broadcast on a private TV channel. While the channel’s social media did not reveal the date of its premiere, the drama, retitled Sultan Salahuddin Ayyubi, can be expected to hit the small screen soon.

An Urdu-dubbed teaser was posted on the private channel’s social media. “A lionheart was born as the answer to countless prayers. The valiant story of Sultan Salahuddin Ayyubi tossing the tables of power and glory,” promises the IG post’s accompanying caption.

Co-produced by renowned names such as Humayun Saeed, Adnan Siddiqui, Dr. Kashif Ansari, Ahmet Faruk Bakacak, and Dr. Junaid Ali Shah, the project promises to be a lavish portrayal of the life and legacy of the great Muslim warrior and leader, Sultan Salahuddin Ayyubi.

The first official trailer for the historical drama was released in October and forecasted a religious war being waged over Jerusalem. Siddiqui unveiled the trailer on his Instagram while discussing the importance of revisiting history from time to time. Lifting the curtain on his production debut with the Turkish series, the actor penned a note in homage to the revered Muslim ruler and founder of the Ayyubid dynasty, who the show is based on.

“It’s important to revisit history from time to time. And so is to follow the path you believe in despite the many naysayers, despite all adversity,” wrote Siddiqui. “Selahaddin Eyubbi, the legendary warrior, offers glorious lessons in courage, indomitable spirit, determination, justice and generosity. The king whose name is etched in golden words, comes alive on your screen on November 13. Meanwhile, a glimpse for you,” he shared.
