KARACHI: Netizens will not leave you if you make any comments publicly and they definitely teach you if you go against their favorites. Looks like Pakistani Netizens became a real-time army of Ertugral and taught the lesson whoever comes to mess their captain.
Turning to his Instagram, Actor Yasir Hussain shared a photo of Pakistani lookalikes of Turkish actors Engin Altan Düzyatan and Cengiz Coşkun who play the roles of Ertuğrul and Turgut Alp in the historic series. Alongside the photo, Yasir wrote: “Nobody will give them any attention because anything local is always devalued while even garbage from abroad is deemed valuable.”
Fellow actor and talk show host, Anoushey Ashraf soon clapped back at Yasir’s comment as she schooled him in the comment section of a local publication, Diva Magazine. “Let’s just gently remind Yasir that NO one is Kachra for one. And even if their work isn’t at par to his liking, actors from around the world must be respected,” she wrote. She went on, “It should be an unspoken ‘bond’ of mutual respect between artists. You’ll know your struggles better than the world does.
Having said that Ertugrul is far from kachra, if anything the series is an eye-opener for how people are finally rejecting ‘kachra’ work at home and looking out for better scripts, shows, and budgets,” she said.
And since then there’s a hashtag #YasirHussainIsTheRealGarbage is trending on Social media.
Hope Yasir must have learned his lesson.
