It has been revealed that İlhan Şen and Gülsim Ali İlhan will meet in the lead role of the Selahaddin Eyyubi series, on which Emre Konuk, the owner of the Akli Film movie, has been working on for a while. İlhan, who left the Gönül Dağı series, confirmed the offer in her statement and announced that even if they did not agree 100%, she also received the script and that she met her partner İlhan Şen.
The fact that the actress was very excited and couldn’t wait to take part in the project did not go unnoticed. The Selahaddin Eyyubi series, which ended the 88-year reign of the Crusader Army in Jerusalem and stood out as one of the most important commanders of the Islamic world, will be a big project.
A special plateau is being created in Gebze for the series, which is expected to be a Pakistani-Turkish co-production. While working on the script of the series, Gülsim Ali İlhan told that the script came to her and she was very excited.
Stating that they will do something that has not been done before in Turkey, the actress also said that they met with her partner İlhan Şen.
There was also a sign that they would be a good match when the two met for the first time. As it is known, Gülsim Ali İlhan was born in Bulgaria and her family migrated to Turkey.
The fact that İlhan Şen was also born in Bulgaria and his family went through a similar migration process was the most important common point of the two.
As the children of two Bulgarian immigrant families, this also seems to have created an emotional intimacy for the duo, who are partners in the new series. Gülsim Ali İlhan spoke as follows about her partner:
“We have already met with İlhan (Sen). He has a very nice energy, very sincere. He was born and raised in Bulgaria. The world is too small.”
Explaining that they will shoot a series of 30 episodes in total, Gülsim Ali İlhan stated that it will be broadcast abroad as well. She stated that the character offered to her is very beautiful, strong and historical.
The actress stated that he wanted this character very much and that she would surprise her fans.
