Salahuddin Ayubi, a Pak-Turk collaborative series, has four Pakistani actors who were chosen after auditions. In October, auditions were held in Lahore and Karachi. Six thousand people applied for the tryouts, but only 62 were chosen for the Islamic warrior series.
Only 42 individuals were chosen from Karachi, while only 18 were chosen from Lahore. According to Emre Konuk, the proprietor of Akli Films, recreating the character of powerful person Salahuddin Ayubi will be a difficult assignment for any actor. The next round of auditions will take place in Turkey in January and March 2022. Ushna Shah, Adnan Jilani, Farhan Agha, and Ayesha Omar have been chosen as Pakistani actors.
In August, Pakistan and Turkey agreed to co-produce a documentary series about revered Muslim general Salahuddin al-Ayubi.
Ansari and Shah Films in Pakistan and Akli Films in Turkey have reached a deal to co-produce a TV series about the Muslim general. “Exciting news on a lovely Friday night!” “A contract has been reached between Akli Films and Ansari & Shah Films regarding ‘Sultan Selahaddin Ayyubi,'” tweeted Emre Konuk, owner of Akli Films.
