When the Turkish drama serial Ertugrul Ghazi, based on the Ottoman Empire, was aired in Urdu, it became very popular in South Asia. Ertugrul Ghazi was instructed to air in Urdu by Prime Minister Imran Khan, after which a new episode is aired every week on Pakistan Television (PTV), which receives record views.
Ertugrul Ghazi did not receive as much acceptance in Turkish as it did in Urdu, which is why the drama channel on YouTube is one of the most subscribed channels. According to Turkish media reports, Russia has also joined the list of countries watching Turkish drama series. Turkish media quoted a report by Russian news agency RIA Novosti entitled “The Great Century” as saying that the agency had recently published an analytical report on Ertugrul Ghazi.

The report says that a summary of Turkish dramas shown in Russia and around the world has been presented but in spite of that it is not only being watched but also the number of viewers is increasing day by day. The article also mentions that the Turkish drama series has been shown in more than 100 countries around the world and has generated a revenue of $500 million in the Turkish economy, while also highlighting the local challenges in the public interest local Turkish industry has also started giving more space to Turkish series than TV series and movies.
