And the trolling don’t stop.
Ever since Yasir Hussain likened Turkish dramas to ‘landay k kapray‘, the actor has been at the receiving end of trolling by fans of Diriliş: Ertuğrul. In the latest development, some trolls have edited Yasir’s bio on Google and listed Esra Bilgiç as his parent.
Yasir has often found himself at the receiving end of flak with his comments on Turkish actors and dramas. When Diriliş: Ertuğrul initially aired in April 2020, the actor had likened Turkish dramas to ‘landay k kapray’.
“Landy k kapray aur Turkey k dramay, dono hee local industry ko tabah kardein gay,” the actor had said.
Later, the actor was reported to have likened Turkish actors to ‘kachra‘ (garbage). According to details, Yasir while sharing a picture of ‘Pakistani Turgut and Pakistani Ertuğrul’ had commented: “Inko koi nahi poochega (no one will give them any attention). Kyunke ghar ki murgi daal barabar or bahar ka kachra bhi maal barabar,” insinuating that Pakistanis do not appreciate local talent enough.
He was also very critical of QMobile for appointing Esra as their brand ambassador.
“Apko nahi lagta k Pakistan brand ki brand ambassador bhi Pakistani honi chahiye? Na Indian na Turkish? Pakistan Zindabad (Don’t you think Pakistani brands should have Pakistani brand ambassadors? Neither Turkish nor Indian),” the actor had written on social media.
