ENGIN ALTA DUZYATAN - ACTOR
The fandom of this 'Ertugrul' star in Pakistan first originated in our homes. It began with little Pakistani kids using wooden sticks for swords, blurting broken Turkish words and being ‘Ghazi’. Kids aside, even adults were enamored by Engin’s charm and his heroic persona, solidified by his impeccable acting skills. For the longest time, the masses needed an Islamic hero, and here came Engin, in all his glory… sporting a beard, a turban, a sword and armor... like an answered communal prayer. The best part is that Engin requited the overpowering love he received from Pakistanis and expressed his gratitude with promises of an impending visit. While the said visit is still pending, his fandom continues to grow. Ever wondered what is the national barometer of judging Pakistanis’ obsession with something? They take it to their trucks, they name their pets and chai dhabbas after it. And yes, we confirm with surety that we spotted a few namesakes here by 'Ertugrul'.
