Television actor Yasir Hussain posted in a recent Instagram story featuring pictures of the two Pakistani individuals who share an enormous resemblance to the Diriliş: actors from Ertuğrul.
The tweet called them the ‘Turgut Pakistani and Ertuğrul Pakistani.’
In response to the tweet, Hussain expressed how their Turkish counterparts could never attain the same value.
“Inko koi nahi poochyga (no one will pay heed to them),” he wrote. “Kyunke ghar ki murgi daal barabar or bahar ka kachra bhi maal barabar (Because home-cooked chicken is equivalent to lentils while international garbage is still worth cashing in),” added the celebrity.
Following the circulation of the screenshot of his story, Drillis: Ertugrul star and famous Turkish actor Hande Subaşı slammed Hussain for his rude remarks on Twitter.
” This vile & insecure man #YasirHussain does not represent proud Pakistani nation. We thank our Pakistani audience for their love and support. Sometimes people do things for attention, he is one of them & we should all ignore him. “
Under Prime Minister Imran Khan’s directives, Dirilis: Ertugrul was dubbed into Urdu and presented as Ertugrul Ghazi on PTV at the beginning of Ramazan. More Turkish content is expected to air on PTV this year.
According to Hussain, the production of a state channel should be good enough for distribution in the whole world. He said that Pakistan is the only country in Asia making great shows on meagre budgets. The actor added that some of these shows had received acclaim in India.
“If Turkey’s state TV can make such a great show, then our state TV should also make one using local artists,” he said. “If 500 episodes of a foreign show are aired, this means 500 episodes worth of work lost for local artists and technicians.”
Many Pakistanis on social media are strongly reacting against Yasir Hussain and condemning his statement. On Twitter, there is top trend #YasirHussainIsTheRealGarbage ” since more than 24 hours
It does seem as if Yasir Hussain’s only claim to fame is getting Pakistani actress, Iqra Aziz to marry him because otherwise he is making headlines only by attacking Turkish actors and a much loved Turkish series in Pakistan.
It is hard to understand what could have been the issue that has got him so insecure because even by stretch of length or assessment, Yasir Hussain does not hold serious fan base behind him and now by doing this, he will only loose the remaining ones.
Here is how vast majority of the people are responding to him;
Should Yasir Hussain be taken to the task for his below the belt attacks against celebrities of a country that has brotherly relations with Pakistan? Or should he just keep his mouth shut for good?
