Jibran Nasir’s take on Turkish drama serial ‘'Dirilis: Ertugrul'

Many Pakistani celebrities have shared their thoughts on the move of the government of broadcasting Turkish top drama serial ‘Dirilis: Ertugrul on national television.

Now, politician Jibran Nasir has also shared his two cents on the matter.

Taking to Twitter, Nasir wrote, “We’ve many beautiful cultures in Pak but many still face an identity crisis which is also seen in our diaspora.”

He went on to add, “Being ourselves often causes “Goras” to confuse us as Indians due to our similarities, so we mimicked Arabs tracing our roots to Bin Qasim. Now we’re trying being Turks.”

A user on twitter was quick to reply, he replied: “You are right. Such seasons should not be aired. I fear soon millennials will be running horses on Shahrah-e-Faisal and Blue Area. Series like Money Heist should also be banned. Our banks are in danger.”

Another one added, “Guys we became white walkers watching Game of Thrones. Every show we watch is a portal and our identity changes soon as we step into it. Remember when Jibran was dancing at a mehndi? That was him after seeing Bollywood. He shed Jibran Nasir and became Akshay Khanna.”

Ertugrul is set to break a world record of most new subscribers in a month on YouTube. After being aired on the state-run Pakistan Television (PTV), TRT Ertugrul by PTV, the serial’s YouTube channel, crossed one million subscribers.

“Now, it's time to make history by reaching 6.6 million subscribers before May 26th 2020 and make the #ErtugrulYouTubeRecord,” TRT Ertugrul PTV wrote on Twitter.

PTV dubbed the series in Urdu after Prime Minister Imran Khan visited Turkey last year and was informed about the importance of the series.

On April 25, coinciding with the first day of Ramadan, PTV aired the first episode of the popular Turkish TV series that highlights the history of Muslims during the 13th century.

Shortly after the 45-minute long first episode was broadcast, #ErtugrulUrduPTV was trending with viewers welcoming the series as they shared some scenes from the first episode on social media.
