Following the record-breaking success of Diriliş: Ertuğrul in Pakistan, another Turkish hit is making its way to the state-run PTV.
Upon yet another recommendation by Prime Minister Imran Khan, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Senator Faisal Javed Khan announced that Yunus Emre: Aşkin Yolculuğu will now be making its way on small screens in Pakistan.
The show, based on the life of an Islamic poet, has been retitled as Raah-e-Ishq in Urdu for the Pakistani audience.
“On the directions of PM ImranKhan, yet another hit by @mmehmetbozdag YunusEmre (AşkinYolculuğu) to be telecast on PTV. Yunus Emre (the Dervish) was an Islamic poet, a mystic & a poor villager,” wrote Javed on Twitter.
“Story of a great Sufi wholly dedicated to ALLAH & searching or unity. It is a Journey of Transformation. Yunus Emre was well versed in mystical philosophy, esp that of the 13th-century poet and mystic Jalaluddin Rumi. Serial is a great example of a meticulous attention to detail work,” he went on to add.
