Now, rumors are starting to spread that Halime Sultan is representing Peshawar Zalmi in the upcoming Pakistan Super League.
Esra Bilgiç takes to Twitter
Earlier, fans of Ertugrul picked up on a Tweet by Esra Bilgiç. The 28-year-old posted a picture of Islamia College in Peshawar. And to everyone’s pleasant surprise, she wrote:

The public was more than excited to see the star’s Tweet. Esra Bilgiç in Pakistan? Again? This is not the first time she has shown love for this country. Last year she visited the ‘Land of the Pure’ and also worked with big-name brands like Khaadi.
So naturally, it doesn’t come as a surprise that she is in town again. But if you remember, she Tweeted another suspenseful post last year. And to add to the confusion, she tagged Javed Afridi and Peshawar Zalmi.
Don’t remember what the Tweet was? Take a look at it here:
