The first episode of PTV’s Urdu dubbing of Dirilis Ertugrul has broken viewership record of the most popular Pakistani TV drama ‘Mera Paas Tum Ho’ on YouTube.
In about 13 months of its release on YouTube, first episode of famous drama writer Khalil ur Rehman Qamar’s ‘Mera Paas Tum Ho’ has garnered 22.8 million views, while Ertugrul Ghazi has more than 74.2 million views in around four and a half months.
Ertugrul’s craze has gripped the nation since Prime Minister Imran Khan announced to show it on the national television. The telecast of Turkish drama serial on PTV also kicked up controversies as some insecure local artists tried to rebuke the government for this. However, people got back to them and schooled them to improve their drama content so that people could enjoy it rather than criticizing something that people want to watch.
