The Urdu dubbed version of hit Turkish series Diriliş: Ertuğrul has taken Pakistan by storm and just within a month of airing on national television Ertugrul Ghazi has become nation’s most favourite show.
Senator and Senior Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Faisal Javed Khan in a recent interview with the Current has revealed that the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had gifted the drama series to Pakistan as a goodwill gesture.
“When President Erdogan met PM Imran Khan, he gifted the series to him as a goodwill gesture,” said Khan.
“PTV did not have to purchase the drama or its rights. TRT gave the drama free of cost to PTV”, he added.
