Turkish starlet Esra Bilgiç or Halime Sultan from the globally acclaimed period drama ‘Dirilis: Ertugrul‘, has revealed that she wants to visit Kashmir.
Ms. Bjilgic, who has a huge following in Kashmir, in an interview with Hello Magazine has said she wants to visit the place to experience the culture.
Ms. Bilgiç said that she is very much fond of Kashmiri culture. “I love the mountainous areas of the Babusar Kaghan valley; the views overlooking the valley of Leepa in Azad Kashmir (PaK); the camp plan in Concordia and the amazing Deosai plateau. In fact, the Kashmir region is one of the places I am most curious about and want to travel to and determine a few places for the documentary project,” she was quoted as saying by the Magazine.
Talking about her character in the Turkish blockbuster, she said, “Halime Sultan is sensitive and strong as I am. She listens to the sound of her heart but never ignores her mind and values.
Just like me, she respects nature, people, animals, and plants.” It is pertinent to mention that her role in ‘Dirilis: Ertugrul’ is based on the character of Halime Sultan who was a consort of Sultan Mehmed III, and the mother of Sultan Mustafa I and the Valide Sultan as well as a regent of the Ottoman empire.
