Pakistanis and their love for Ertugrul has made international headlines many a times!
And today, considering the fan following of Ertugrul in Pakistan, an international publication Khaleej Times mis-takes Ali Zafar’s ad poster for Tecno as a remake of Ertugrul:
Pakistan is making any local version of #Ertugrul ?
What do you say about this? #ErtugrulGhazi #ertugrulurduptv pic.twitter.com/eutws3uCyh

This little mistake is giving us major ideas, would you like a remake of Ertugrul? Let us know in the comments below!
Pakistani TV shows (morning shows) and actors are literally embarrassing us in front of Turkey and Turkish industry. What’s with them? Our TV dramas were all time best and famous in the world and our writers, directors and producers are still the best. Then why are these actors behaving so weird? What’s wrong?
