In this regard, VJ Anushay Ashraf recently spoke to Yasir Hussain on Instagram and asked him the reason for opposing Turkish dramas and Turkish artists. Yasir Hussain said that the money earned by the Turkish actress by becoming a brand ambassador of a mobile company Our actors have a right to the money.
Yasir Hussain said that Turkish actress should come to Pakistan, work here for one year, work hard as our actresses do, then she should be appointed as ambassador of Pakistani brand.

But I want to see my people in the brand ambassador of PSL. Anushay Ashraf said on Yasir Hussain’s point that even if international players play in PSL, then why can’t its brand ambassador be an international artist?
On which Yasir Hussain said that it is the game of international cricketers. When they come here, they teach our players and we benefit from it. But we have made Halime a star, so what is the benefit to us internationally by making Halime Sultan the brand ambassador of PSL. Replace Halime with Angelina Julie and then we have the benefit of watching our cricket in America.
