Turkish dramas have always been rather popular here but it was a personal recommendation from Imran Khan that put Diriliş Ertuğrul on the top of everyone's must-watch list.
In fact, it was the Prime Minister's request that led to the drama being dubbed in Urdu by PTV. About the show now airing, he shared his views on why people should give it a shot.
According to the PM, Diriliş Ertuğrul "shows the culture of Islam."
"Usually we copy things from Bollywood that have been copied from Hollywood."
He added that the drama "also has romance, has historical moments, but all while showing Islamic values... I want that our children and youth know what our culture is."
Diriliş Ertuğrul began airing in Urdu on PTV from the first of Ramazan.
