Fans ask where's Esra as Mahira Khan announced Peshawar Zalmi's new brand ambassador

Team owner Javed Afridi had teased a collaboration with the Turkish star.

Actress Mahira Khan has confirmed that she is the brand ambassador for Peshawar Zalmi for the PSL 6 but that has us wondering where this leaves Turkish actress Esra Bilgic.

Team owner Javed Afridi also confirmed the news with a tweet.

This isn’t Khan’s first time with Zalmi — she represented the team in PSL 3 and PSL 4. She also appeared in the music video for the team’s anthem in season four of the PSL. She's also one of the most bankable Pakistani actresses with a sponsorship deal with L'Oreal.

In the promotional picture released by Zalmi to announce Khan's ambassadorship she's wearing Zalmi colours — black pants and a black sweatshirt with yellow patterns on the front. She's also sitting on a yellow car.

"Glad to announced Mahira Khan as Peshawar Zalmi Ambassador for the third time, it's a hat trick of the winning partnership," said Afridi in a statement. "Mahira Khan is one of the biggest showbiz stars of Pakistan and we are thrilled to have her for PSL 6,. She was with Zalmi in seasons three and four too and I hope this will continue in the coming years."

But Afridi has been teasing PSL fans for weeks now by dropping hints of a collaboration with Bilgic, who starred in the massively popular Dirilis: Ertugrul.

She made headlines in Pakistan when she posted a picture of Islamia College Peshawar on her Instagram story and later posted a tweet identical to Afridi's. Both said "new beginnings".

Sources confirmed to Images that talks with Bilgic are still under way and a "final outcome is expected in a few days". We might hear news of multiple ambassadors for Zalmi, something that isn't unprecedented — in PSL 3 and PSL 4 Khan and fellow actor Hamza Ali Abbasi were both ambassadors and singer Gul Panra was the regional ambassador.

People want both actresses to be brand ambassadors.

And so do we! Seeing Bilgic and Khan team up would be amazing.

So when is one of stars going to be become brand ambassador for a famous Turkish football club?
M. Saeed Feb 16, 2021 07:00pm
This is a big diversion from the game. Let some legendary cricket players be the brand ambassadors.

@M. Saeed . The game is low quality so these gimmicks are the entertainment.
Omar Feb 16, 2021 09:22pm
Your name should be the brand. Retain and groom quality players and be known for excellence. Cheap gimmickry and tactics are a big turn off (at least for me).

Its all about Songs, Anthems, Controversies, Brand ambassadors, actors etc.. What about the players?

@Nadir S. When Pakistani actors develop such fanbase in Turkey, surely you'll have Pakistani Brand Ambassador for Turkish Football Clubs. These are brands who want to market their product through popular faces, don't see anything wrong in that because it was the Pakistanis who went gaga over these Turkish actors and these brands have every right to cash their popularity.
