The famous Sindhi Channel “KTN” is coming up with their new drama serial ‘Raj Rani’, based on local history, and people called it a copy Drilis: Ertugrul.
The series has been heavily influenced by the Turkish historic Epic as it is based on the centuries old chronicles of the sub-continent. The trailer shows heavy sword fighting, armor plates and a backdrop that features Mughal style battle fort.

It is a matter of happiness that Sindhis are making such dramas because the terrorists who are always shown on TV are terrorists in real Life Not Sindhis are peace loving and hospitable.
