Turkish TV dramas have been making their name in Pakistan for quite some time now and people have only been craving for more.

After the whopping popularity in the Middle East, South Africa, and even in South America, action-packed Turkish television series ‘Dirilis: Ertugrul’ has made its way to Pakistan and did not fail to impress the Pakistani audience especially our Prime Minster!

The TV serial is also known as the ‘Turkish Game of Thrones’. The story is based around the 13th century Anatolia and tells the tale preceding the establishment of the Ottoman Empire. It shows the life and the efforts of Ertugrul Gazi, who’s the father of the empire’s first leader.

The show has gained massive popularity after the first season was dubbed in Urdu and released in Pakistan on Hum Sitaray back in 2015.

However, Prime Minister Imran Khan ordered that all five seasons of the drama serial should be dubbed. The show is not just a great watch it also tells a great part of Islamic history.


A huge number of Pakistani audiences love Dirilis: Ertugrul and from the plot to the direction, and the costumes, the high-quality production values, and some very talented actors the drama guarantees to keep the audience hooked to the screen.

Furthermore, the former cricketer Shahid Afridi took Twitter to express his adoration about Ertugrul and wrote, “Watching the Turkish series Diriliş: Ertuğrul I’m just overwhelmed by their achievements and victories that came as a result of their faith in ALLAH and the empire of justice which they were able to establish as a result of. May we be like that once again?”

More recently, according to the PM, Diriliş Ertuğrul “shows the culture of Islam.”

“Usually we copy things from Bollywood that have been copied from Hollywood.”

He added that the drama “also has romance, has historical moments, but all while showing Islamic values… I want our children and youth to know what our culture is.”

Since then, Imran Khan has taken many steps for this drama to be aired in Pakistan. The government has announced that it will air on PTV during Ramadan 2020.
