Khalil ur Rehman Qamar, the man behind dramas like Pyaaray Afzal, Sadqey Tumharay, and most recently Kaaf Kangana & Meray Pass Tum Ho, made news recently for discussing his intent to work on a script like Diriliş: Ertugrul with Hamayun Saeed.

He believes that the Pakistani nation needs to drift apart from conventional Pakistani dramas, which mostly revolve around “saas-bahu ki siasat” and “loog kya kahay ge?”, and work on scripts like Ertugrul.
Qamar said, “Of course I am thinking about it. Three days ago, I called Humayun Saeed and we decided to do something like Ertugrul.”
According to the writer, the industry has some problems like limited resources yet Pakistan has some of the finest actors and remarkable directors.
