Pakistani actors set to collaborate with Ertugrul producer
LAHORE: Pakistani actor Adnan Siddiqui today (Friday) has revealed that Turkey and Pakistan will be collaborating on a venture in a bid to promote the country’s entertainment industry.
Taking to Instagram, Adnan Siddiqui revealed that Tekdin Films, which is the name behind the hit series Ertugrul, will be working with Pakistan’s TRT Films. “Humayun Saeed will be overlooking pre, on-going and post-production activities of this collaboration,” he added.
“As millennials say; super stoked to bring to you a partnership that transcends borders. Pakistan and Turkey have joined hands in collaboration between Dr Kashif Ansari’s Ansari films, TRT films and Mr. Kamal Tekdin’s Tekdin Films to usher in a fresh era in Pakistani industry,” he wrote.
The Meray Paas Tum Ho actor further wrote, “The new venture has also got on board yours truly and Humayun Saeed as an extended arm, which means both of us will be taking care of all the pre, on-going and post-production activities of this collaboration.”
“For the uninitiated, Tekdin Films is the name behind the blockbuster Diriliş: Ertuğrul. I have always believed that art should be free from the shackles of international and geopolitical boundaries. This is my small step towards that,” he concluded.
Earlier, Ertugrul producer wished to collaborate with Pakistanis. Mehmet Bozdag said that Muslims should not only work together in politics and trade but also in culture and the arts.
“I am surprised that we did not make any collaborations till this day because we call each other brother countries,” said Bozdag, referring to Turkey and Pakistan. “However, we have never signed a deal in the field of culture and arts. So then where is the fellowship?” he added.
