Hadiqa Kiani sings praise for Turkish series ‘Ertugrul’
The Turkish historical TV drama Dirilis Ertugrul (Ertugrul's Resurrection) has been on top of its popularity in Pakistan since the state broadcaster began airing a dubbed version in April.
The show's immense popularity has polarised opinion in Pakistan. Some feel it is a threat to local culture and promotes violence, while others applaud it for glorifying Muslim heroes.
However, singer Hadiqa Kiani has shared a rendition of one of the Turkish songs she had sung at an Opera house in 2005.
Taking to Twitter, the singer wrote: “In 2005, I had the honour of singing the Turkish song Sen Ağlama at the AKM Opera House,” she tweeted. “Today, I have remastered that song as a tribute to series Diriliş: Ertuğrul, Sezen Aksu and to the people of Turkey.”
She went on to add, “May our love and bond be forever strong.”
