Karachi Kings’ Umaid Asif learns cricket lesson from Ertugrul series
The craze of Turkish drama ‘Ertugrul’ series has swept through all over Pakistan and celebrities are no different. Many stars of entertainment and sports industries have showed their immense love for the drama for showing Islamic traditional values and history.
All-rounder Umaid Asif, who is currently associated with Pakistan Super League franchise Karachi Kings, has learnt a different lesson from the drama. In a tweet, he said he had finished watching all seasons of Dirilis: Ertugrul. He said despite all the religious and faithful lessons in the series he learned one more thing as a cricketer. He learnt that a captain should be like the lead character of the historical drama, Ertugrul, an opener should be like one of his closest soldiers, Turgut, and lower order batsman should be like his another closest soldier, Bamsi, while a coach should be like the famous scholar Ibn e Arabi, who plays the role of a mentor of Ertugrul.
“Finished all 5 seasons of #Ertuğrul. Despite of all the religious and faithful lessons in the series I learned one more thing as a cricketer. Captain #Ertugrul jaisa hona chahiye aur opener #Turgut jaisa aur lower order batsman #Bamsi jesa aur #Coach #IbnAlArabi jesa,” Umaid Asif tweeted.
A large number of the audience have taken to YouTube to watch the show’s Urdu Dubbed version as it was launched in Pakistan.
A Turkish TRT TV official Riyaad Minty has revealed that Ertugrul has crossed 200 million views on the TRT Ertugul BY PTV channel and is about to cross 3 million Youtube subscribers.
“We’ve now passed 200 million views in Urdu and getting close to 3 million subscribers,” he wrote on Twitter.
