Can Ertugrul help PTV set a new YouTube world record?
Movie theaters may be shut down, concerts postponed and schools closed before summer, but TV is still here to distract us in these dark times.
All the series/movies provide a breather, a portal into a better time to come, or a challenge we’ve overcome. They’re an escape, and a way to confront the worst. They provide a sense of possibility, and glimpse into a world that’s become elusive.
It is no surprise that Turkish drama Dirilis Ertugrul has become an epic hit, not only in the Middle East but also in South Asia, being binge-watched by millions as they practice social distancing.
Recently, after Prime Minister Imran Khan recommended everyone to watch the series, PTV is impelling fans and followers to break a new world record.
