Showbiz and political figures had also expressed anger over the running of the Turkish drama 'Ertugrul Ghazi' on Pakistan Television (PTV) in April this year. Actor Yasir Hussain was among the showbiz personalities who expressed anger over the Turkish drama being aired on state TV. Criticism of showbiz and political personalities for running the drama on state TV has its place, but despite this, Turkish drama set new records of popularity in Pakistan and the cast of the drama also became popular in the country.
After the cast of the play became popular, the most famous in Pakistan went to the lead actress of the play, Esra Bilgic, who played the role of 'Halima Sultan' in the drama. Given the fame of Esra Bilgic, some Pakistani brands had also expressed their desire to work with the actress, which was revealed by the actress herself in an interview with Dawn Icon earlier this month. The actress had said that she would soon be seen working with three Pakistani brands, after which more brands expressed their desire to work with the actress.
After Pakistani brands wanted to work with the actress, Esra Bilgic had said in her social media message in Urdu that she does not work with any management company in Pakistan, those who want to work with her in Turkey. Contact their partner company. After the popularity of Esra Bilgic, Javed Afridi, owner of Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise Peshawar Zalmai, also took to Twitter to ask fans for their opinion on what would happen if Halima Sultan was appointed as the brand ambassador of the cricket team.
After Javed Afridi's tweet, Esra Bilgic also wrote in reply to his tweet that soon Pakistani fans will get to hear good news. It was thought that Esra Bulgich would soon be appointed as Peshawar Zalmai's brand ambassador, but even before the announcement of the cricket team, the well-known Chinese mobile company Q announced the appointment of the actress as ambassador to Pakistan.
Q Mobile Pakistan confirmed in its social media post on July 12 that the company has appointed the Turkish actress as its brand ambassador. After the appointment of the actress as ambassador, while her fans were happy, some Pakistani showbiz stars also expressed displeasure over the decision and most of all, actor Yasir Hussain expressed his anger.
Yasir Hussain raised questions in Instagram stories about the appointment of Isra Belgich as an ambassador of Pakistani mobile, whether any Pakistani actress was not qualified to be appointed as an ambassador? Yasir Hussain asked the fans if they think that the ambassador of the Pakistani brand should be a Pakistani actress? Neither Indian nor Turkish, he also raised the slogan of Pakistan Zindabad.
