Everyone has been talking about the Turkish hit drama Dirilis Ertugrul (Ertugrul Ghazi) ever since PTV started airing an Urdu dubbed version of the show.
Ertugrul Ghazi has even broken the viewership record of Merey Paas Tum Ho which is one of the most popular Pakistani drama serials directed by Nadeem Baig and written by Khalil ur Rehman. The show starred Ayeza Khan and the first episode of the Pakistani drama garnered over 20 million views on YouTube over 9 months.
However, Ertugrul Ghazi broke that record in just 21 days getting over 21 million views on YouTube and that’s not all as there is a massive difference in the number of subscribers for both channels too.
PTV Home is also currently focusing on breaking a YouTube world record of most subscribers gained in one month. The channel is urging fans to subscribe and seems like they’re going to accomplish getting this record as the channel has already gotten 6.1 million subscribers and needs to reach 6.6 million till 25 May 2020.
Ertugrul Ghazi star Esra Belgic has been the latest crush of Pakistani viewers although that does come with its drawbacks as many fans went on to her Instagram account and did not like or approve of what they saw as the star posted some pictures in what many considered to be too revealing. The photo got so many comments urging her to cover herself up.
That’s not all there as another cast member Engin Altan Duzyatan also became a victim of Pakistani fans moral policing on a picture he shared on Instagram with his dog as Pakistani fans were not happy with him having a dog in his house due to religious reasons.
