A few days back the chairman of PSL’s Peshawar Zalmi announced that he’s considering Pakistan’s most adored actor, Engin Altan Düzyatan who plays Ertugrul, as a brand ambassador for his team.
And people were barely over the news when he added that he might get Esra Bilgiç a.k.a everyone’s favourite Halime Sultan on board too! And soon Esra Bilgiç confirmed the news on her Twitter account:
