Is Esra Bilgiç in Peshawar? The Turkish star, who is a favourite of Pakistanis, posted a picture of the Islamia College Peshawar on her social media so speculation has been rife.

It has been raining Turkish celebrities so we wouldn't be surprised if Dirilis Ertugrul's leading lady was indeed in Pakistan — and she has plenty of reason to be here. She has already worked with Khaadi and other brands and reports are she is going to be involved in the upcoming Pakistan Super League as part of the Peshawar Zalmi entourage.

Lending more weight to those reports is Javed Afridi, chairman of Peshawar Zalmi, who right after Esra, tweeted the same lines.

Lest we forget, the star had built suspense last year in July, after she tweeted that she had some "good news" and tagged the Zalmi account as well as Javed Afridi.

Esra has shown love for her Pakistani fans in the past so it's no surprise that they, in return, are excited and extremely welcoming at the thought of her being in Pakistan.

Javed Afridi, you can put these rumours to rest
