Omer will be the local version of the 2013 Israeli-made Shitsel series, which received great acclaim after it was released on Netflix. While the preliminary preparations for the series continue, meticulous work is being carried out for the cast.
The fact that the duo of Selahattin Paşalı and Gökçe Bahadır will take the lead role both attracted and surprised the fans of the series. In the story, you will follow the life of a muezzin named Ömer who falls in love with an older woman. The partnership of Selahattin Paşalı and Gökçe Bahadır in this story will create an interesting situation for the fans of the series.
Gökçe Bahadır, born in 1981, is 41 years old. Selahattin Paşalı, who was born in 1990, is 31 years old. In other words, the age difference between the two players is 9. In real life, such associations of famous names or citizens who have an age difference have often come to the fore before.
Here, the partnership of Gökçe Bahadır and Selahattin Paşalı in the Ömer series will look a little different to the audience, but the story is expected to be supported by a very large audience.
Of course, social acceptance for young man and mature woman relationships is not that easy. For this reason, it may take some time to get used to the partnership of two successful actors in the TV series Ömer. In fact, it should not be surprising if a big lynching campaign occurs on social media.
The Ömer series, which will be directed by Cem Karcı, also includes names such as Barış Falay, Gülçin Kültür, Muharrem Türkseven, Zerrin Sümer, Metehan Parıltı and Gamze Karaduman.
The Ömer series, which is expected to start shooting in the near future, seems to impress the audience with a story about the relationship of a man who is a muezzin with his family, his interest in an older woman, and how quickly the change in society is experienced.
In an interview, Selahattin Paşalı explained that the TV series Ömer was exciting for him: “There is an Israeli series called Shitsel on Netflix, it is an adaptation of it. It will be an exciting experience for me, a really interesting role. We will also be preparing for this role. Of course, I’m going to the mosque. I’m not the type to be far from the mosque anyway. I spent a lot of time in my childhood, but now I go to the mosque to get into that atmosphere. There will also be a transformation story of the muezzin. It’s a well-intentioned business, a business aimed at something that’s good for people at the end, something that unites us.”
