Ahmet Mümtaz Taylan hosted actress Hazal Kaya in Empati, which was broadcast on NTV and produced by BBO Yapım. Hazal Kaya had remarkable conversations about her family and life, while establishing empathy with real stories that happened on NTV screens.
When asked by Ahmet Mümtaz Taylan, “Do you have any obsessions?”, Hazal Kaya answered: “I wash with vinegar, I wipe the house with vinegar. I burn sage. I don’t sign or take a step without asking my astrologer. I burn black cumin. Fiko’s birth coincided with Mercury retrograde, it was so funny that I was in pain, I asked what happens to children born in Mercury Retrograde. Whenever I say Venus, Ali says, “You know, there is no such thing, it’s not real.” He gives me scientific explanations…”
Hazal Kaya, who was asked by Ahmet Mümtaz Taylan about her life at home, admitted that she had a hard time, but also revealed her self-confidence with the following words: “I can’t cope. I’m having a hard time. I was very self-confident with my first child, I said, “But I am also my mother’s child, she worked and raised me,” but it didn’t work that way. It sounds like an easy thing, but it’s not at all. The emotional side was challenging for me. First, I had a hard time between work and children, then between 2 children and work… They are 3 and a half years apart… Ali is very interested, Süreyya is very young, Fiko and he are a wonderful father and son, my eyes fill with tears watching them… ”
Hazal Kaya, who defines herself as “I am a person of love, I fell in love with Ali when I was 23 and I’m still in love with him”, talked about her first meeting with her husband Ali Atay:
“When we first met Ali, I almost beat him. Ali said, ‘I guess Hazal didn’t like me’, I was upset, I couldn’t say it because I liked her! To the child whom I treated rudely and badly, he says, “I guess I didn’t pull his hair, no, I didn’t mean it like that.” Terrible, disgraceful!” Hazal Kaya added that they evaluate their relationship with her husband Ali Atay every year: “Is there a problem, what can we do? Of course, we don’t sit down and have our annual meeting, you evaluate the person you are every year in your own mind…”
I took shelter in Çağatay Ulusoy’s house
Hazal Kaya explained the fire disaster she experienced in the last days of her pregnancy to her son Fikret Ali as follows: “There was a fire while I was pregnant with Fikret. If it had been hard… Thank God the stairs were stone, the basement was completely burned. If the stairs had been wooden, not stone, the whole house would have been destroyed… I took the animals out of the house, opened the window so the cats could go up to the roof, because the whole house was covered in soot… Last time I towed the cars, I saw that they couldn’t tow them. I’m 9 months pregnant! Çağatay Ulusoy, bless his ears, we were living in the same site. Security told Çağatay Bey to go, Çağatay opened the door, he thought I was giving birth. If it wasn’t for Çağatay; Thank you…”
I love Nihal in the novel, she is completely different today.
Hazal Kaya made the following sentences from her own perspective about Aşk-ı Memnu (Forbidden Love), which is on the agenda: “I love Nihal in the novel very much. It’s completely different today. I watched Aşk-ı Memnu during both of my pregnancies, I watched it twice. The second time I watched it, I felt very sorry for Nihal. Non-existence within existence…”
