Karachi: Cengiz Coskun, a Turkish actor well-known for his role ‘Turgut Alp’ in the famous drama serial Drilis: Ertugrul, wished to learn cricket from the former flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Khan Afridi.
Speaking exclusively to Waseem Badami and Shahid Afridi on the ‘Eid Special’ show at ARY News, Coskun said he will be touring Pakistan very soon once the current COVID-19 pandemic dies down.
“Whenever I come to Pakistan, I want you to teach me cricket,” Coskun aka Turgut ALP told Afridi. In reply, Afridi expressed his enthusiasm to learn Axe-wielding skills from the Turkish actor.
It must be noted here that Drilis: Ertugrul gained massive popularity in Pakistan after it was being aired, dubbed in Urdu at Pakistan Television (PTV)’s YouTube channel, on special directives from the Prime Minister of Pakistan.
