This Pakistani Photographer Just Claimed That Esra Bilgiç Refused To Work With Pakistani Artists But People Don't Buy It

By Anoosha Rehan | 8 Oct, 2020

Did Esra Bilgiç really refuse to work with Pakistani photographers?

Pakistani fans of the Turkish show Ertuğrul are aplenty. They’re so invested in the show that they keep seeing Pakistani celebrities as their favorite Turkish characters.  The love from Pakistani fans is so strong that Halime Sultan from the show, played Esra Bilgiç aka Halime Sultan has become the top celebrity endorses for Pakistani brands.

One would think that the love for the Turkish show and the actress is universal but that’s not the case. One Pakistani photographer recently claimed some very interesting thing about Esra Bilgiç.

 

While Ertuğrul and Esra Bilgiç have become beloved Pakistani favorites, not everyone’s happy about that

Case in point, Pakistani actor and writer Yasir Hussain who continues to make his displeasure with the Turkish show known every chance he gets. He also continues to receive great ridicule from fans.

 

Recently, a well known Pakistani photographer, Natasha Zubair, took to Instagram to claim that Esra Bilgiç has refused to work with Pakistani makeup artists and photographers

Natasha began to say that it was disappointing to see how Pakistanis can support Turkish actors even at the cost of the disrespect faced by their local artists and photographers. She claimed that the beloved Halime Sultan refused to work with Pakistani makeup artists and photographers. She pointed out how sad it was to see Pakistanis overlooking their own talented actors and investing in foreign actors who apparently aren’t even paying respect. Natasha highlighted that it was no one but ourselves to blame.
