ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday urged the Pakistani entertainment industry to take inspiration from the famous Turkish show and come up with a quality local production to provide the youth with a welcoming Ertugrul-like alternative of substandard and glamorized content.
“If Pakistani film and drama industry presents quality local production, it will not only progress but also provide the youth with an alternative of substandard and glamorized content, which will be welcomed like that in the case of Ertugrul,” he said.
The prime minister expressed these views during a meeting here with the founding team of popular Turkish drama serial Ertugrul led by Kemal Tekden.
Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz, Kashmir Committee Chairman Shehryar Khan Afridi, and the representatives of Turkish and Pakistan film industry were present in the meeting.
The meeting discussed in detail the proposed television series based on the role of renowned Sub-continent personality Turk Lala in the Khilafat Movement, to be produced through cooperation between Turkey and Pakistan
