WACH: Zahid Ahmed expresses his opinion on Pakistani artists’ criticism over Diriliş: Ertuğrul
In a recent live video, Zahid Ahmed let his views about Diriliş: Ertuğrul be known.
The renowned actor Zahid Ahmed has shared his opinion about the famous Turkish series Diriliş: Ertuğrul.
Celebrities against the Turkish series
When the series started airing in Pakistan, it gained quite the hype. People fell in love with the show and the cast. However, a few celebrities had a different stance on ‘foreign content’ being aired on national television.
Shaan Shahid and Yasir Hussain were against the airing of Diriliş: Ertuğrul. Yasir spoke up against the casting of Esra Bilgic in ads, and her being made the ambassador of Pakistani brands. Shaan also thought that only local content should be aired.
Actress Zhalay Sarhadi was also against the casting of Esra Bilgic in our local ads.
On the other hand, in a recent live video, Zahid Ahmed let his views about Diriliş: Ertuğrul be known.
He said that he accepted the success of the show, and the arguments being made by our celebrities ‘are very shameful and useless’.
According to him, if your work is good, nobody could take it away from you.
“First of all, if you are good at your job, no one can take it away from you. Secondly, we should be ashamed that we are not making such content, despite being a Muslim state”, the actor said.
