“We’ve had more than 6 million people visit the channel already, but we need you to subscribe to get the record for most subscribers in one month,” Minty wrote on Twitter.
Originally produced by the Turkish state-owned media company TRT in collaboration with a private company, the historic drama was later dubbed into various languages and was streamed online around the world.
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.
Earlier, the team had expressed their gratitude for receiving a tremendous response from Pakistan in a short span of time.
“Ertuğrul has gone viral in Pakistan and its episodes are trending on YouTube in Pakistan every day,” Minty had said, adding that there are more than 30 million views and over 600,000 subscribers on Youtube channel.
“However, with growing popularity, these numbers are expected to climb up in the coming days,” he hoped.
According to TRT Ertugrul PTV official Twitter handle, the channel Ertugrul Ghazi can beat the current record of 6.6 million with the love and support of its growing fan following.
