“There is a very serious number of episodes in the past, shot before me. I had the opportunity to watch them in detail. Since the texture of that period was different, I investigated what kind of style was used in the table setting, table conversation, sincerity, and what kind of behavior we modernize today. I read some books of that period. I read and researched the Çukurova of that period. That’s why my preparation process for the series was very efficient due to the pandemic.”
