. . A few days ago, 4 terminally-ill children expressed their desire to meet their hero, Ertugrul @enginaltandzytn . It is not just these children but millions of Pakistanis who would love to meet this fantastic Turkish Actor, including me. @makeawishpakistan @ishtiaq.baig.official and the board of directors who have helped to make more than 13,000 such wishes come true for thousands of precious Pakistani children, took it upon themselves, with the help of the the Honorary Consul General of Turkey, to make this meeting happen. Due to the current situation, a physical meeting wasn’t possible, but a virtual one was. Only 3 of the kids were able to make it as one was not allowed to travel to Karachi by his Doctor. Today, is the day their wish was full-filled. I’m extremely honoured and grateful to have been asked to host (and translate for) this beautiful evening. . 🤲🏼🌹❤️✨🙏 . . #ayeshaomar #turkey #pakistan #makeawish✨ #ertuğrul #ertugrul #pakturkeyfriendship

The children (Fizza, Sidra and Sohail) had expressed their desire to meet their favourite hero and the foundation made their dream come true. 

During the session, Duzyatan interacted with his little fans. Then he had a chat with Saeed who revealed that Duzyatan’s acting was the main reason why he watched all the episodes of Diriliş: Ertuğrul.

 “I watched all episodes (400 to 500) of Dirilis: Ertugrul and the main reason was your acting,” said the Jawani Phir Nahi Ani actor.

 He continued: “The way you performed your character, the way you fight and all your action sequences were very good. I watched all the episodes just because of you.”

Saeed also shared that he hopes to meet Duzyatan on his upcoming trip to Turkey.

In the end, Duzyatan thanked Saeed for his admiration and said, “I am very happy for this love from Pakistan.”
