Pakistan and Turkey have maintained a strong brotherly bond for over decades. Ever since the Turkish drama ‘Dirilis: Ertugrul’ swooped into Pakistan and begun airing on the National TV; the entire nation became fans of not just the show but all the Turkish stars. The strong narrative, brave protagonist, and lavish production value resulted in skyrocketing TRP’s. The roaring success of the magnum opus series has not only strengthened the Pakistan-Turkey relationship but opened doors for various brands and marketing strategists to cash on the Turkish stars.
Resultantly, Pakistan local giants took the initiative of bagging Turks for their campaigns; to name a few, the sensational Ersa Bilgic endorsed QMobile, Khaadi, Jazz Super 4G, and currently represents Peshawar Zalmi as their brand ambassador for PSL-6. The beloved stars Cengiz Coşkun & Nurettin Sönmez are signed up as official ambassadors by J. fragrances. Moreover, the entertainment industry of Pakistan has collaborated in a joint production with Turkey for the biggest ever series ‘Turki Lala’ with Humayun Saeed and Adnan Siddique on board as executive producers.
The Pakistan-Turkey collaborations doesn’t seem to slow down anytime soon as currently joint collaborations doors are wide open. Recently fashion designer Maria B. dropped her newest collection that has left everyone gasping for air. Hold on! This is not the usually run of the mill campaign instead, there’s an interesting twist in the tale.
