2020 was the year for Ertugrul in Pakistan, the series came and conquered the hearts of the citizens breaking all records!
And to make it even, Pakistanis have suggestions on what Turkey should air, starting with Ehd e Wafa:
It’s only fair now if Turkish state television airs Ehd-E-Wafa and Erdogan meets with all the cast. Otherwise this iron brotherhood isn’t real.

YES, YES AND YES!
Turkey should air Alpha Bravo Charlie on their official TV. https://t.co/vq5U2jF4xn

We should make them air Bulbulay. Gotta match the episode count
— Ghaura (@ghauraghaura) January 14, 2021
Ye jo match karni hai, wo episode count hai?

What about Meray pass tum ho?
We tolerated their soap operas (Ishq e Mammoon, Fatima Gul) way before Ertugrul.

Oh boy, it’ll be a massive hit!

I just want them to issue via on arrival on Pakistani passport

Inko dekho zara:
I want them to give citizenship easily to Pakistanis.

Some weren’t too amused:
Never never ever.
Though Turks too going going through identity crisis but our obsession has no parallel. https://t.co/Qm5BqV2DKm

Ma’am, do you want war?
I recommend Kaaf Kangna. https://t.co/OtSzGXW791

Waisey, Turkish dubbed Alpha Bravo Charlie would get lots of traction. https://t.co/nYP8BTRzD6

People weren’t okay with Ehd e Wafa:
Ehd e Wafa was such a shit drama sorri not sorri https://t.co/41FFuzqNV4

Some thought we didn’t have anything to match Ertugrul:
The reciprocation will only be fair if our drama or for that matter film industry has churned out any similar worthwhile production which has similar global following. Till then, no need to whine.

People were sharing how Turkey and Pakistan are collaborating on a series of their own:
pakistan and turkey are working on a project together about turk lala a pakhtun origin man who went to ottoman empire to fight in the ww1
— Zakria (@Zakr1a) January 14, 2021
They are collaborating for a historical series. It will be released in 2023. If we survive till 2023 then In Sha Allahul adhīdh ll definitely watch it. pic.twitter.com/cc781SvHqM

They are collaborating on a Historical drama. I hope it's of the same scale as Filinta and Paytihat AbdulHamid. You can argue on content and propoganda but scale of the show 😍

Toh kya Erdogan ne hame kahan tha ke Ertugrul chalao
