This Eid was certainly different from those we’ve experienced in the past. The pandemic coupled with the horrifying and devastating plane crash a few days before Eid – lessened the excitement that usually surrounds this rather joyful occasion. However, this Eid did bring something exciting into the life of Anoushey Ashraf.
Anoushey shared a video message from her Turkish friend Murat who had called her while hanging out with the main lead of the Turkish drama, Ertugrul, Engin Altan. The men wanted to convey Eid greetings but she was unable to attend the call because her phone was on silent mode.
“Best surprise and Eid gift ever by my friend Murat! When you MISS a facetime call with the handsome and Uber talented Ertugrul aka @enginaltandzytn because you’re meditating and your phones on silent. Next time indeed, inshAllah. Been watching the series and loving it so far, good job you guys! you guys made me smile this sombre Eid. Thank you @murattarman for being a star and the best human. Can’t wait to see you soon! Sending love and Eid greetings to Turkey#ertugrul #yay #happy ….. still wondering how i missed that call while you heroes were hanging out. next FaceTime call from Hayme Hatun and Noyyan,” she captioned the video.
Waving to the camera, Engin says “I’m sorry we couldn’t speak. Next time, Inshallah. Eid Mubarak’. Was this the best Eid gift for her or what?
