Dirilis Ertugrul became a phenomenal hit all over Pakistan in 2020. People have been raving about it ever since and have become die heart fans of Ertugrul’s cast. Last month Ertugrul’s main lead, Engin Altan visited Pakistan. The female lead, Esra was seen in numerous advertisements on Pakistani Television. Very often these Turkish actors are seen interacting with our Pakistan’s actors.
On January 7, Celal Al who plays the character of Abdur Rehman Alp in Ertugrul visited Pakistan. He was seen in a meeting with the honorary prime minister, Imran Khan amongst the presence of Adnan Siddiqui, Humayun Saeed, and other stars.
The ever-charming actor, Adnan Siddiqui also penned down praises for the Turkish star saying
Abdur Rehman on-screen and real-life Cel AL has won many hearts in Pakistan with his role of a valorous warrior who is distinct in actions and thoughts. We were no exception! Look at the grins on our faces! For the entire time, he was in the room, it was bursting with an infectious joie de vivre. Didn’t feel like we were meeting him for the first time.
Though he says he’s fallen in love with Pakistan and our hospitality, I must tell you, my friend, you have got two fans for life in megastar Mr. Humayun Saeed, and a fairly popular actor yours truly.
Turkey and Pakistan are collaborating on an entertainment project which was discussed in the presence of Prime Minister, Imran Khan. Briefly, a television series about the role of Turk Lala in the Khilafat movement. Prime Minister highlighted that it is very unfortunate that our new generation does not really have much knowledge about the Golden Era of Muslims. Such projects will create awareness amongst the youth about their history.
Celal Al seems to be enjoying his visit to Pakistan, as he updates his fans with bits and pieces of his stay in Pakistan through his social media.
