It's a 2-way love story as both Dirilis Ertugrul and its fans in Pakistan have left indelible impression on each other. The historic Turkish drama cast is so impressed by their crazy Pakistani fans that most of them including the lead actor "Ertugrul" himself have thanked the Pakistani audience for the love and record-smashing views.
Now the drama producer Mehmet Bozdag is wondering why the two countries haven't worked together on projects. "I am surprised that we did not make any collaborations till this day because we call each other brother countries,” said Bozdag to Anadolu Agency. He was quite surprised that both the countries had never signed a deal in the field of culture and arts.
He said, "When one of us is in trouble, both countries are mobilized. But we should also do this act on better days and organize days of culture not only in the cinema but also in the field of cuisine, museums and history."
"We shall share our experiences with Pakistan and they should share theirs with us, and together we will sign world-shaking deals," he said.
Bozdag also revealed that the story of Ertugrul "will continue as [next drama] Kurulus: Osman," which will continue for five to six more years so it looks like fans will be getting their fix for a long time.
