Turkish drama, Diriliş: Ertuğrul, known in Pakistan as Ertuğrul Ghazi is one of the most-watched dramas in the country these days. With Imran Khan recommending the youngsters to watch the Turkish show, its popularity has skyrocketed.
The show based on the history of the Ottoman empire has broken a number of records in Pakistan as everyone seems to be binge-watching it.
While everyone is in awe of the historical fiction and adventure television series, cricket lovers are busy finding similarities between the characters of the show and cricketers. We have already seen an Usman Shinwari in the TV show, and Mohammad Amir seems to have found Virat Kohli’s lookalike in the drama.
