After all the hints and mystery, Peshawar Zalmi has finally — and officially — welcomed Turkish actor Esra Bilgiç into its fold.

"We welcome Esra Bilgic into our #ZKingdom," the team wrote on its Twitter account with a picture of the star in Zalmi gear.

"Brace yourself Yellow storm, a kingdom is about to be revealed tonight," the tweet added, ending on a suspenseful note.

The suspense, however, didn't last long as team owner Javed Afridi revealed that the Zalmi anthem would be released tonight.

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

Earlier this week, actors Hania Aamir and Ali Rehman were announced as brand ambassadors as well as longtime Zalmi associate Mahira Khan, which led fans to ask: where's Esra Bilgiç?

Last month, the Turkish star 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 had confirmed to Images that talks with Bilgiç were under way and a final outcome was expected in a few days.

Fans, we're sure, are very happy with this outcome!
