Moreover, the leading cast of the series, Esra Bilgic, known for essaying the role of Halima Sultan, and Engin Altan Düzyatan, Ertugrul, are winning the hearts of Pakistanis with their amazing chemistry in the series.

However, as soon as the announcement was made, a number of celebrities including Yasir Hussain, Minal Khan and Aiman Khan said that local celebrities should be taken as the ambassadors of the Pakistani brands.
Yasir Hussain took to his Instagram stories and wrote:
Don’t you think a Pakistani brand should have a Pakistani ambassador? Not Indian or Turkish. Is Mahira, Saba, Sonya, Minal, Aiman, Amar, Zara, Haniya, Sana, Yumna, Armeena, Sara, Hira… anyone not worthy enough to be a brand ambassador for a Pakistani brand?
He concluded by saying:
Support Pakistani actors. Pakistan Zindabad.
As soon as he posted his statement, twin sisters Minal Khan and Aiman Khan agreed with him in their respective Instagram stories.
Absolutely right,” wrote the Ishq Tamasha actress Aiman as she shared Yasir’s post. Doing the same, her sister Minal Khan also wrote,” Yes because why not Yasir.”
However, a number of local celebrities disagreed with Yasir Hussain and said that international stars should be welcomed because nobody can take away the work one is meant to have.
The Band Kirkiyan actor Aagha Ali wore:
Actors hamesha international hona Pasand karty hain…you feel great when you get an offer from another country… and when a foreign star gets signed by a Pakistani brand….some people start to act and write stuff as if they’d come here and steal our jobs and projects.
He further added:
Allah any apkay naseeb main jo likha hai us say an ziada milega na kam (Whatever Allah has written in your fortune, you will get it). Let’s outsiders feel welcomed here. And please stop making all of us actors insecure. Aanay dou jo aata hai.. and khush raho, mehnat karo. Shukriya (Welcome whoever wants to come here, be happy and work hard. Thanks),
