Engin Altan Düzyatan (Turkish pronunciation: [æɲˈɟin aɫˈtan dyzjaˈtan]; born 26 July 1979) is a Turkish film and television actor. Born in Karşıyaka, İzmir Province, Turkey, Düzyatan studied theatre at the Dokuz Eylül University in his home province before making his acting debut with Ruhsar (2001). He then went on to act in various roles in film and television in Turkey.

Düzyatan rose to international prominence for his role as Ertuğrul Bey in Diriliş: Ertuğrul.[1][2]

Early life

Düzyatan was born on 26 July 1979, in Karşıyaka, İzmir, Turkey,[3][4] to Mevlan and Gülşen Düzyatan.[5] Engin Altan Düzyatan began acting during his high school days. His parents were Turkish migrants from Yugoslavia.[6][7] He joined Dokuz Eylül University to study theatre. He completed his course and moved to İstanbul where he started his professional acting career.[8]

Career

Early roles

He made his screen debut in the television series Ruhsar and went on to appear in Yeditepe İstanbul, Koçum Benim and Alacakaranlık.[7] In 2005, he acted in the films Beyza'nın Kadınları, directed by Mustafa Altıoklar, and Kalbin Zamanı. In 2007, Düzyatan appeared in the series Sevgili Dünürüm with Haluk Bilginer, Sumru Yavrucuk and Nevra Serezli.[7] His next roles were in the films Cennet (2008) and Mezuniyet (2009).[7] In 2009, he played Doctor Serdar Batur in the series Bir Bulut Olsam with Melisa Sözen and Engin Akyürek, written by Meral Okay.[4] Düzyatan acted in the films Romantik Komedi, New York'ta Beş Minare and Bir Avuç Deniz in 2010.[4] He hosted the game show Canlı Para which is Turkish version of The Million Pound Drop Live on Show TV in 2010 and 2011.[4] In 2014, he appeared in the series Cinayet with Nurgül Yeşilçay, Uğur Polat, Şükran Ovalı, Ahmet Mümtaz Taylan and Goncagül Sunar.[9]

Diriliş: Ertuğrul and later roles

From 2014 until 2019, Düzyatan starred in the TV series Diriliş: Ertuğrul as the eponymous character on TRT 1.[10] Düzyatan was initially reluctant to accept the role, fearing the show would be "ridiculous".[11] He read 13th century works such as the Book of Dede Korkut in preparation for the part.[11] Düzyatan called Ertuğrul "a real hero",[12] and "smart, mature and just",[11] praising his "vision, strength, purpose in life and all of his values",[13] and feeling his portrayal was important in providing a Turkish equivalent to Batman and Spider-Man.[14] Düzyatan will appear as Oruç Reis Barbarossa in the Turkish TV series Barbaroslar in 2021.[15][16]

Public image and personal life

On 28 August 2014, he married the granddaughter of Selim Soydan and Hülya Koçyiğit, Neslişah Alkoçlar.[17][10] The couple has a son, Emir Aras (born 2016) and a daughter, Alara (born 2018).[18]

In 2020, Düzyatan went on a short visit to Pakistan, where Diriliş: Ertuğrul has gained popularity, accepting the invitation of a private business company.[19] Pakistan's Make-A-Wish Foundation arranged a meeting between Düzyatan and three young terminally ill fans;[20] when there, Engin said, "Thank you very much, I can see I inspired you and I am very happy for this love."[21] After signing an agreement with the Lahore-based Chaudhary Group of Companies,[22] of which he was a brand ambassador, he visited Lahore and became one of the top discussions on social media and one of his pictures with a lion went viral.[23] He was treated with "a flood of love" while the Pakistani army had to protect him to avoid a stampede of people coming up to him.[24] Düzyatan returned to Turkey after being defrauded by Pakistani TikTok star Kashif Zameer.[25] Despite this incident, Kashif Zameer claimed that Düzyatan would return to Pakistan,[26] with a clip of his "pleasant memories" going viral.[27] Düzyatan also wishes to appear in a Pakistani drama series one day, "if it has a good story."[28]

Two statues of Ertuğrul on horseback inspired by Düzyatan's portrayal of Ertuğrul in Diriliş: Ertuğrul were placed by a private cooperative housing society in Lahore, Pakistan in 2020.[29][30] A bust of the character was also erected in Ordu, Turkey in 2020, although it was removed by local authorities after a resemblance Düzyatan was pointed out.[31][32] Düzyatan was named by 'The Muslim 500' as one of the world's most influential Muslims in 2020.[33] Düzyatan's Diriliş: Ertuğrul co-star Nurettin Sönmez felt filming for the scene of Ertuğrul's death in Kuruluş: Osman was difficult due to Düzyatan's legacy in playing the character.[34][35] Düzyatan supported the Turkish government's decision to reconvert Hagia Sophia into a mosque in 2020.[36]

Accolades

In 2016, Düzyatan won the Magazinci Awards in the category Male TV Series Actor of the Year.[37] Engin Altan Düzyatan received a total of 4 nominations for the Turkey Youth Awards, all in the same category of Best TV Series Actor, one in 2016, another in 2017.[38][39] For the Golden Butterfly Awards, he got 2 nominations for The Best Actor and Best Performance by an Actor in 2016.[40][41][42] Düzyatan also won an award in the categories Supporting TV Series Actor of the Year and Male TV Series Actor of the Year, respectively for the Golden Palm Awards.[43] Düzyatan also won the Quality of Magazine Award in the category Actor Award.[44] In 2016, he received two other awards, Makinistanbul Media, Art and Sports Award, in the category Best TV series Actor,[45] and the Mimar Sinan Fine Arts High School Award for being the Most Successful Actor of the Year.[46] In 2019, he also received an international award named the Distinctive International Arab Festival Award (DIAFA) for being the Best International Actor.[47]

Plays ertugrul who

A still from Resurrection: Ertuğrul | Via Netflix

Text Size:

New Delhi: Since the pandemic began, Benazir Fatma, 32, an IIT-Roorkee alum, has been practically living in the 13th century. Through dozens of episodes spread over five seasons, the Turkish fictional drama Resurrection: Ertuğrul— set in a time of multi-ethnic empires, pitched battles, the setting and resetting of borders, and the state making constant demands on individuals to declare their loyalties — has fired her imagination. 

When her son turns one in September, Benazir, who stays in Ranchi, said she will dress him up as an “alp (a type of soldier in Ertuğrul)”, complete with a cap and wristband.

Rizwan Malik of Delhi came up with a different sort of tribute, and set up the ‘Ertuğrul Family Restaurant’ at Shahdara in August 2020, a year after the last episode of the series aired. The restaurant, which offers north Indian cuisine, names its dishes in deference to the series.

“The Ertuğrul Malai Chicken is our bestseller,” Malik said. 

Just like Babar is the “father” of the Mughal empire, Ertuğrul, a figure about whom not much is known, is widely believed to be the father of Osman I, leader of the Turkish tribes in Anatolia that constitutes much of modern-day Turkey. Osman I is considered the founder of the Ottoman empire that ruled large areas of West Asia, eastern Europe, and north Africa for over 600 years.

The series first started streaming on Netflix in 2014; its final episode was aired in May 2019.  

The country-wise viewership figures from 2014-2020 of the series’ YouTube channel reportedly reveals that India is at No. 2, with the show notching over 125 million Indian viewers as of the second quarter of 2020. Pakistanis are the top viewers with a viewership of over 390 million in the same period, and Turkey residents come in third with 119 million.

Indians of all ages, and from across the country, who have discovered the series since last year said they are drawn to it because of the similarities with their own history, culture, and the eternal curiosity multi-ethnic societies have about the place of origin of people who have governed them.

In his 2013 book Time in Early Modern Islam: Calendar, Ceremony, and Chronology in the Safavid, Mughal and Ottoman Empire, author Stephen P. Blake noted that the “three Islamic empiresof the early modern period shared a common Turko-Mongolian heritage”.

Of these, while the Mughal empire (1526–1739) held sway over the largest population, the Ottoman empire (1300–1923) survived the longest.  

“Babur, the founder of the Mughal Empire, was a Chagatai Turk from Fergana in Central Asia. Of the five dynasties of the Delhi Sultanate, at least three had Turkish origins,” said medieval Indian historian Ali Nadeem Rezavi of the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU).

“They ruled from the 13th to the 16th century or for 300 years. A lot of traffic happens in 300 years in terms of language, memories, and traditions. The Mughal empire also lasted for over 300 years — the curiosity about Ertuğrul, especially in north India, is thus quite understandable.” 

The Turkish series’ popularity in India was first noted in Kashmir in the immediate aftermath of the scrapping of Article 370, which was followed by a curfew and public shutdown. As many people had downloaded the show in the months before, young Kashmiris beat the internet shutdown by passing the series to each other on flash drives. 

Sara, 24, a Kashmiri student studying in Delhi, described herself as an “Ertuğrul addict”. “I think this is a meaningful series and Engin (Engin Altan Duzyatan, who plays Ertuğrul) is a good person. I follow him on Instagram,” she said.

Urmila Bhadoria, a Kanpur-based retired healthcare professional, 60, who tuned into the show in 2021, said Ertuğrul is a good example of how to do a historical series. 

“I mean I, of course, like Mughal-e-Azam,” said Bhadoria. “But in our movies, we have only seen how Salim loved … I would have liked to know how he ruled.” 

Sweta Kushwaha, a PhD cinema studies scholar at JNU, who is currently writing a paper on the Turkish show Fazilet Hanim ve Kizlari (Mrs Fazilet & Her Daughters), said she loves Ertuğrulfor similar reasons.

“Historical dramas like Ertuğrul are a wonderful study of human relations and palace intrigues,” she added.

Bhadoria is, however, quick to add that she also has a soft corner for the actor who plays Ertuğrul. She keeps downloaded pictures of Duzyatan as Ertuğrul on her tablet — visuals of Ertuğrul as a man of action, a fond husband, and his interventions at council meetings.

‘Happy to have fans in India’

Engin Altan Duzyatan, 42, a prominent Turkish actor-producer, told ThePrint in an exclusive video interview that he “is happy to have fans in India”. Playing larger-than-life characters has made him “a better person”, he added.

“The core values — the feeling for family, friends, and one’s country — are the same (everywhere). These kinds of series have a positive effect on other cultures that watch them. They arouse curiosity for others,” Duzyatan said.

For many viewers, Ertuğrul is a close look at political Islam, which has given rise to regimes seen as progressive and liberal (for example, Akbar’s during the Mughal era, and Jordan under Abdullah II), as well as bigotry. 

“In the serial, it is always explained on what occasions the sword has to be picked up or not,” said Bhadoria. Ertuğrul is shown to be harsh on oppressive Muslims, and he gives positions of responsibility to non-Muslims too, she added.    

Dr M.V. Shobhana Warrier, who teaches modern Indian history and ancient world history at Kamala Nehru College, Delhi, said she was curious to see the portrayal of political Islam and jihad “from the other side” in Ertuğrul

“So far, courtesy Hollywood, we have only seen the Crusades and the Holy Roman Empire, so I wanted to see how they constructed the ‘other’,” she added.

Ertuğrul, Warrier said, was another kind of imagining of “the past” — the past of West Asia, a region perennially in turmoil.

“In our history books, we have studied the Crusades, and through the historical fiction of Ertuğrul, we are seeing how Islam responded to the Crusades and it wasn’t uniform, mind you.” 

She said the subalterns, the tribes, and the imperial state of the Sultanate of Rum (founded in 1075, Ertuğrul served it in the 13th century) — the predecessor of the Ottoman Empire — all acted according to their own compulsions.

‘Ertuğrul is no superhero’

It was also interesting for Warrier to see a popular rather than an academic representation of the dynamics between a state and a people. 

“The negotiations of Ertuğrul’s tribe with its own identity vis-a-vis other tribes; with rogue Christians such as the Templars; with the wheelers and dealers of the state to which it wants to be joined; the way the many Turkish tribes offer up their children, men and women, to the state in return for land and power — all of it was nicely done,” she said.

Unlike The Crown, the Netflix series that chronicles the life of the British monarch Elizabeth II, Ertuğrul is not centred on one individual or overly personalised, she said. “One always felt that Ertuğrul, as a character, was constantly looking beyond his tribe, his wife, his children, and reaching out to make wider connections,” she added. Next semester, she plans to ask her students to watch it.

What many Indians also warmed up to is the portrayal of women in the show. “The show has numerous women such as Hayme Hatun or Aslihan Hatun, who head the tribes or are assigned the second-in-command positions and are accepted as such by men, or choose to work on the sidelines but still ensuring their tribes/families remain safe,” said Kushwaha.

Ertuğrul’s connect with the world and the resonance of its many strong women characters with Indians is instantaneous. Recent scholarship has brought to the fore what was perhaps only known in academic circles — the women of the Mughal court were power centres and no wallflowers.

Baburnama, the first documented history of life at court and of nomadic life — not unlike Ertuğrul‘s — reveals how Babur’s aunts, sisters, grandmother and nieces would freely give their opinion and influence policy, succession, and essentially the flow of power. 

Indians have also liked the lyricism in the serial and the treatment of its romantic scenes. “The love between Ertuğrul and (wife) Halime is shown with so much decency. There is no bed scene!” said Bhadoria in appreciation and lament.  

Rezavi added that Ertuğrul does not come off just as a champion of Islam. “Unlike western fantasies like the Game of Thrones, there is no magic in this serial. Ertuğrul is no superhero. This is a hero who gets hurt, is outsmarted, but keeps trying to overcome the odds,” he said. “It is Ertuğrul who makes things happen, not Ibn Arabi, the holy man, or his prayers. In this world, just invocation of religion would not have worked. Prayers alone don’t move mountains.”

    Engin Altan Düzyatan: Ertuğrul Ghazi of ‘Resurrection: Ertuğrul’

    Broadcasting TV series in more than 150 countries, Turkey is known as the second-largest exporter of TV series after the U.S. From 2000 onward, Turkish dramas have shown upward movement and have achieved wide prominence – they even got subtitles and were dubbed in other languages as well. This situation made the Turkish TV drama export business grow swiftly with the highest record-breaking earnings annually. Turkish series have become an important asset for the country itself as they often depict and introduce Turkish lifestyle, history and culture to the world.

    Among the most-watched Turkish TV series are “Sen Anlat Karadeniz” (“Lifeline”), “Kara Para Aşk” (“Black Money Love”), “Aşk ve Mavi” (“Love and Hate”) and “Diriliş: Ertuğrul” (“Resurrection: Ertuğrul”). While international audiences enjoyed these series a lot due to their content and cultural elements, the series also attracted attention with their social messages. “Resurrection: Ertuğrul,” for example, brought the glorious past of Muslims to the screen amid a harsh wave of global Islamophobia.

    The period-based drama, directed by Metin Günay, tells the story before the Ottoman Empire’s establishment in 13th-century Anatolia. Ertuğrul Ghazi, a brave Muslim Oghuz Turk leader, tries to establish a state for his future generations with extraordinary determination and strength. The show is watched in many countries, from Pakistan to Bangladesh, from Chile to Bosnia-Herzegovina. Sharing common historic and cultural roots with Turkey, Azerbaijan in particular has accepted the show as its own. Azerbaijani viewers watch the series with great enthusiasm, and Azerbaijani vocal artist Shamistan Alizamanli has appeared as a guest actor, as well.

    Similarly, people in Pakistan even changed their hairstyle to copy the warriors in the series. A large chunk of the population in India who speak and understand the language regularly watch it. Javid Khan, a Muslim entrepreneur in southern India, has named his new restaurant Ertuğrul. In Kashmir, where the majority of the population is Muslim, people found meaningful relevance in the drama and watched the impeccable performances of all characters, winning the hearts and minds of thousands of people.

    Gluing viewers from across the world to the screen with its theme, the hit drama also owes its success to production and acting. Engin Altan Düzyatan, who stars as Ertuğrul Ghazi, is the actor who contributed to the wide fame of the series the most with his stunning performance in the series.

    Düzyatan was born in 1979 in the Karşıyaka district of western Izmir to Turkish migrant parents from then-Yugoslavia. Studying at the theater department of Dokuz Eylül University, the actor started his acting career in Istanbul in 2001 with the roles he played in Kenter and DOT theaters.

    Düzyatan made his debut on TV with the series “Ruhsar,” a fantastic family drama about the immortal love of a couple, as a supporting actor. From 2001 to 2004 he played various supporting roles in television series and received his first leading role in 2005 in the TV series “Kadın Her Zaman Haklıdır” (“The Woman is Always Right”) as Pekcan. Besides working in this TV drama series, Düzyatan has also worked in numerous movies like “Romantik Komedi” (“Romantic Comedy”) and “Anadolu Kartalları” (“Anatolian Eagles”) and theatre plays as a leading actor.

    While Düzyatan was already a popular face in Turkey for his acting skills, it was “Resurrection: Ertuğrul” that skyrocketed his fame, making him a world-renowned actor.

    For his portrayal of Ertuğrul Ghazi in the series, Düzyatan won many awards and nominations, including the Golden Butterfly Award for best actor, Golden Palm Award for TV series of the year and Turkey Youth Award for best TV series. In 2019, Düzyatan received the Best International Actor Award at Distinctive International Arab Festival Awards (DIAFA) in Dubai. In 2021, he received a prestigious award from Indian Television Academy (ITA) for the periodic drama series.

    Düzyatan has become a symbol of heroism for a younger generation with “Resurrection: Ertuğrul.” According to the artist, he also learned from his role in this series. In an online event that Yunus Emre Institute (YEE) organized to bring together Altan with his fans around the world, the actor said: “Ertuğrul Ghazi’s personality, his outlook on justice, humanity have affected me immensely.”

    After “Resurrection: Ertuğrul,” Düzyatan appeared in the costume drama “Kurşun” (“Bullet”), and it has been announced recently that he will play the role of Barbaros Hayreddin Paşa, the first admiral of Ottoman Navy, in a new series on Turkey's main public broadcaster TRT.
