MUMBAI: Acclaimed Turkish TV series have begun telecast in the middle-east and south American countries as well as in India. Turkey consul-general to Mumbai Erdal Sabri Ergen told Anadolu Agency that, in October 2015, Turkish TV series entered India with "I Named Her Feriha". Turkey's total television series exports amounted to $350 billion at the end of 2016, and targets $1 billion by 2023.

Besides Turkey, India has imported a number of series from Pakistan, Australia, and South Korea, Ergen added. He said that the number of Turkish series sold to India has risen to 12, the Daily Sabah reported.

Indian broadcasters had seen Turkish television series on Pakistani TVs and then telecast them in India. After "Ad?n? Feriha Koydum" was appreciated in India, the country eventually brought in a number of Turkish television series and movies under the auspices of the ministry of culture and tourism.

Touching upon the logic as to why Turkish TV series were loved in India, Ergen said that one of the factors was the similarity between the family lives of Indians and Turks. As the Turkish TV stories address the goings-on in routine life, Ergen observed that Indians could related with the series' characters. Turks are both, Asian and European, as per the Indian perspective. Also, the landscapes in Turkey shown in the series had the ear of Indians, the consul added.

Calinos Entertainment director Asl? Serim Guliyev said, following "Feriha", they sold the TV series (translated/ renamed as) "Relationship Status: Complicated), "Emergency Love" and "A Love Story" in India as also the movies "Miracle"," "Wings of Night)" and "Long Story". Ranking second in terms of TV series sales in the world after the U.S, Guliyev informed that that Turkey has already exported over 70 TV series to the world.

Jointly with Turkey, movies would be produced too. Pana Film, the production company of "Valley of the Wolves" recently agreed to jointly shoot two movies with Eros International.
