The drama series has received an overwhelming response from Pakistanis and around the world. The series was later dubbed into various languages and was streamed online around the world.
Created by Mehmet Bozdağ, the popular TV series features Engin Altan Düzyatan in the lead role.
The series depicts the pre-history of the Ottoman Empire, chronicling around the plight of the nomadic Kayi Oghuz Turkic tribe, led by Ertugrul, the father of Osman I, the founder of the Ottoman Empire.
