Pakistan remains abuzz with the reports of a local businessman defrauding Turkish star Engin Altan Düzyatan, who played the lead role in popular Diriliş: Ertuğrul series.
While Engin’s co-star, Esra got better deals. Jazz, QMobile, and Khaadi signed her. Engin got two deals. We were excited about his arrival, but the brands had something else in mind. At first, he was signed by Blue world City. He was invited to Islamabad. However, the Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) has filed charges saying it is an illegal housing scheme.
Now reports are that Mian Kashif Zameer, the blonde-haired host who was seen everywhere from the Turkish star during his first ever visit to the South Asian country, struck a deal of one million dollars with Mr. Engin Altan but paid only half of it.
On the other hand, the Sialkot-based businessman has rejected the reports as ‘a malicious campaign,’ claiming some local brands and media outlets are tarnishing his image ‘out of revenge’ for not letting them meet the Turkish guest.
While the controversy goes on, one thing remains true about Kashif. He is a wanted felon and was previously booked in eight cases of fraud, betrayal of trust, car theft and robbery. Four cases were registered in Lahore and two in Toba Tek Singh while a case of fraud was registered in Sialkot.
Kashif Zameer is the managing director of the Chaudhry Group of Companies and his father was a session judge. However, after the death of his father, he now runs the business himself.
