Mustafa Hanif is the exact copy of the Ertugrul actor
The popular Turkish series Dirilis: Ertugrul which recently reached the limits of popularity in Pakistan, and has now become popular due to its actor’s lookalike. The main lead of the drama series, Engin Altan aka Ertugrul’s doppelganger is spotted in Karachi.
Due to an unearthly resemblance, Mustafa Hanif, a YouTuber and a citizen of Karachi can be considered as Pakistani Ertugrul. In an online interview, Mustafa told his side of story that how he came to know about his resemblance with the Turkish actor, “My name is Mustafa and many people in my office had watched Diriliş: Ertuğrul before it even came into Pakistan or started airing on PTV. I was often told that I resemble the leading character of the serial but I never paid much heed to it. Then when my own family started watching the show and said the same, I watched it too and was baffled.”
Mustafa works in a private firm and holds a masters degree in International Relations. He is a YouTuber and often posts videos to promote tourism in Pakistan on his channel.
Recently, Mustafa shared a video on video sharing platform in which he looked quite similar with the Turkish Ertugrul as he wore the same outfit and was riding a horse. The video garnered appreciation and compliments from the viewers who were shocked and surprised to have Ertugrul in Pakistan.
Meanwhile, the doppelganger also shared his interaction with the public after the recent discovery, “A few days back I went to the market without wearing a facemask, a few people recognised me and started talking to me.”
Talking about his views on meeting the cast of the hit show, Hanif expressed his desire to meet actor Engin Altan only, not Esra. He gave his opinion and said, “Several disputes on the personal lives of the cast of dramas often emerge on social media, but we should view their personal lives differently from their roles.”
