The internet trolls Nida Yasir for dressing up like an Ertugrul character

The host wore a traditional tribal outfit and fans couldn't get past its resemblance to Haleema Sultan's Ertugrul costume.
Updated 19 Apr, 2021

Nida Yasir is the latest target of Diriliş: Ertuğrul fans in Pakistan. That's not to say they're targeting her; they just think she dressed like Haleema Sultan from the TV show.

The Turkish historical fiction piece, following the rise of the very real Ottoman Empire, was introduced to Pakistan in 2020 and has since ascended to the top of the nation's favourites list in a relatively short period of time.

Without further adieu, this is what Yasir wore on her Good Morning Pakistan episode with the legendary Umer Shareef and Nigar Award winning veteran actress Deeba Begum.

It looks awfully like something out of that Turkish TV show, but that's not what it actually is. But when has the internet cared about what something actually is?

Yasir's traditional blue dress looks like a classic, with its tribal embroidery, pale tones and the contrasting red details. Add in an Afghan matha patti and you have an individual looking awfully similar to what Sultan is seen wearing in the show. Check it out yourself.

Let's now open the flood gates, and let in the trolls.

In case you were looking for a recipe, we got you.

This next guy is a little too intense.

This user's all for the bargain!

People feel cheated.

Some were nicer than the rest. There's nothing wrong with dressing like a TV character.

Some people wanted to know why everyone was so hyped up about Yasir.

At this stage we have to split from this narrative and explain what Yasir was wearing. For all its similarity to the Sultan's outfit, it was actually a tribal outfit from the indigenous culture from Kailash. The tones, the sharp contrasting detail, patterns and the rust dupatta are all as the tribal women have donned it for centuries.

Pakistan, as a nation, has done wonders for the Turkish TV series. Neither the Ottoman's, nor creator Metin Günay could've thought to make such a difference in a region so far away from home, but it happened. Right from the very top of the populace — notable politicians, celebrities and even the prime minister himself — people have sung praises for the show, some even calling it the greatest ever.

Why Nida has no self respect? She should stay original.

This lady is dressed in Afghan clothes and she is sporting it with great panache. There is no need to compare her clothes, to the one worn by the character from the famous Turkish show. I don’t understand all the gratuitous promotion of this show. Yesterday Arabs were en vogue, today it’s the Turks, and tomorrow will be another’s turn. Who knew soap operas could be so transformative.

Why so complexed ? Changing dress will not hide the colour of skin, neither will it change our origin.

Safarashi host, only on TV because of her influential husband who is a Director / Producer. Filled with cosmetic surgery. This is the culture in Pakistan

Unnecessary comments. Even if she was copying that character, what's wrong with it? She looks good. People are very rude and insensitive online.

Another desperate attempt by a Pakistani to look like a Turk. When will they learn that there is hardly anything common between these two countries.

Isn't it little overdoing. Enough of this Etrugrul. Let's see some modern Turkish drama, some Turkish food and of course the famous Turkish drink, which most of Turks drink.

This Nida Nasur simply executes cheap publicity stunts to stay remotely relevant, just when we have completely forgotten she exists, she has to go ahead and supply proof that she is alive... "No we don't miss you Nida!" Her show is carcinogenic - to an already literacy deprived, ethically devoid, morally bankrupt society, Nida has taken up as her religious duty to fill with toxic "radioactive" content of no real relevance. I am surprised she is allowed to go on hosting a show that is fundamentally evil along the lines of heroine pedalling... When will the censors actually do their duty and shut her show down? This society is already in the ruins, her show is consistently making professional efforts to make it worse!
