The leading actor of Pakistan film industry Shaan Shahid had earlier opposed the airing of Turkish series ‘DerlishErtugrul’ and now declared it as ‘Master Piece’. It has been airing on state TV channels since the first of Ramadan. Shaan was the first to oppose the Prime Minister’s order.
Shaan said that foreign content should not be aired on state channels. A controversy had erupted after Shaan’s statement and celebrities, including social media users, had condemned the actor’s statement. In a social media message, Shaan described ‘Derelish Ertugrul’ as a masterpiece series and wrote that he has just finished watching ‘DerelishErtugrul’, which is undoubtedly a classic masterpiece.
He also shared a photo of Ertugrul Ghazi’s poster in his tweet and thanked the producers of the play for creating such a masterpiece. Shaan said that this wonderful series is a testament to the tireless work and efforts of the actors and technicians. He also thanked Netflix, a major entertainment streaming company, for showing the series on Netflix, not on the official channel. Earlier, Shaan had responded to a user’s tweet advising him to learn how to perform ablutions from a scene of Ertugrul Ghazi, saying that he does not learn the religion from dramas and movies, all this was taught by his mother.
