Ertuğrul fans, brace yourself! Because latest reports have suggested that star of the super hit Turkish TV series Diriliş: Ertuğrul Engin Altan Düzyatan is coming to Pakistan in October.
According to a press release by London-based events management outfit Frontiers World, “Engin Altan Düzyatan has finally confirmed his much-awaited visit to Pakistan. He looks forward to meeting many of his fans in three ticketed-only events in Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad. The Turkish star will hold an exclusive on-stage question and answer sessions during the events.”
The three-day tour has been titled ‘Jashn-e-Ertuğrul’ and will take place from October 9-11.
Frontiers World is organising the trip in collaboration with TRT, the official Turkish broadcaster.
Set in 13th century Anatolia and based on the struggle of Ertuğrul Gazi, father of Osman I – the founder of the Ottoman dynasty, Diriliş: Ertuğrul has won the hearts of Pakistani audiences ever since its first episode aired on PTV Home in April 2020. In an exclusive interview with The Current, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Senator Faisal Javed Khan revealed that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had gifted the drama series to Pakistan as a goodwill gesture.
