For us, entertainment geeks, Peshawar Zalmi’s line-up of brand ambassadors is far more intriguing than the cricketers involved. Mahira Khan, Hania Amir, Ali Rehman Khan, and now, Esra Bilgiç – talk about a star-studded squad, eh? But it seems like Ertugrul feels betrayed by Esra’s move. And perhaps other cities share in those sentiments.
‘Ertuğrul’ star Esra Bilgiç as brand ambassador
Esra Bilgiç took to her Instagram account to announce the news of her representing Peshawar Zalmi in PSL 2021. Weeks before the big announcement, both Esra and Zalmi had been giving us major hints. Now, they’ve finally revealed the news we had all been waiting for.
Taking to her Instagram account, the Turkish star wrote:
From now on, I’m a part of the Zalmi family. So proud to be supporting the team with you. ⚡️💛 اب میں زلمی فیملی کا حصہ ہوں۔ مجھے فخر ہے کہ میں آپ کے ساتھ ٹیم کا ساتھ دوں گی۔. ⚡️💛

The news was also shared on Peshawar Zalmi’s Twitter account. A picture was shared on the teams official account, and the caption reads:
We welcome Esra Bilgic into our #ZKingdom

Last week famous Pakistani celebrities Mahira Khan, Hania Amir, and Rehman Khan also became part of the team.
‘Ertuğrul’ feels betrayed
Diva Magazine shared a clip from Diriliş: Ertuğrul and added a little twist to the subtitles. In the clip, Halima [Esra] can be seen telling Ertugrul [Engin] she has joined Peshawar Zalmi. And Ertugrul is infuriated with her betrayal.
Let’s take a look:
Ertugrul is not the only one to feel this betrayal- fans of other PSL teams are also wondering why Esra Bilgiç ditched them. What do you have to say about this? Share your views in the comments section.
