Esra Bilgiç, who has become immensely popular in Pakistan after Diriliş: Ertuğrul aired on PTV in Urdu, has reportedly refused to work with Pakistani makeup artists and photographers.
Lahore-based photographer Natasha Zubair, in a message shared to her Instagram stories, claimed that Esra refused to “work with Pakistani makeup artists and photographers.”
She continued, “[She] is still wearing our clothes…and we’re still paying her…the amount we must be paying her.”
In another story, Zubair lamented how Pakistanis tend to ignore their own local talent and continue to run after international stars, despite the disrespect they receive from them.
Later, when a local media outlet reached out to Natasha for more details, the photographer refused to comment on the matter.
Esra has been chosen as the brand ambassador for several Pakistani brands including Khaadi and Q Mobile.
