Mehwish Hayat speaks in support of Turkish series ‘Ertugrul’

Turkish hit series ‘Ertugrul’ has won hearts and minds of Pakistani public but some actors are not happy with the government for airing the popular TV series.

After Shaan Shahid and Reema, actor Yasir Hussain has also raised his voice against the airing of popular Turkish television show Diriliş: Ertuğrul.

In a recent Instagram post, Hussain has ranted on how airing Turkish TV shows could damage the local industry.

“PTV ko chaye hai kay woh eik tareekhi drama banaye aur apnay artists aur technicians ko use karey. Woh artist jo tax detey hein aur qabliat rakhtey hein. ( PTV should develop a historic TV show and use local artists and technicians. Those artists that give tax and have talent),” he said.

However, Mehwish Hayat has come forward and supported the series.  Addressing the ongoing debate around the Turkish drama, Hayat took this issue on twitter and said: “I don’t know what the fuss is all about? At the end of the day let’s accept Dirilis #Ertugrul for what it is; an educational drama series which has historical significance and great moral lessons.”
