While on one hand Pakistani celebrities are raising their concerns over the influx of Turkish dramas after Dirilis Ertugrul made it to PTV, there’s also another group that has come forward in support. One among such celebrities is Neelum Muneer who took to social media to praise the drama.
“Even though I respect views of everyone in my fraternity but I feel it’s not the matter of Turkish content or Pakistani content. We should look beyond and understand that its Islamic content, which has so much wisdom and teaches us the history and the values of Muslims,” said the Kahin Deep Jaley actress.
She went on to say, “They gave their lives for justice and remained on Allah’s path. And they kept Islam alive.”
“It’s like reading a book which is full of the great history of Muslims. Let’s just feel proud of our Islamic heritage and get motivated and also create content in Pakistan which we should also be proud of,” added Neelum.
Neelum’s post also reached Turkey from where Gülsim Ali who plays Aslıhan Hatun in Dirilis Ertugrul, thanked her for the kind words.
“Thank you Neelam Muneer Khan. Thank you for the nice compliments. Love you and your heart is so beautiful, wish you all the best,” said the Turkish actress.
In response, Neelum once again was generous with compliments, “It’s my pleasure, Gülsim Ali. You really deserve appreciation. You have performed beautifully and did justice to your role.”
The two actresses concluded their exchange with a mutual wish for Gulsim to visit Pakistan.
