It wasn’t. As I said before, things happen as itself. My acting journey started like this.
You have become a lead character in many Turkish series. But your latest Turkish series New Life (Yeni Hayat) ended due to low ratings.
I am just interested that I have been a part of a project that I like and I have become a character that I like. I cannot control the tv ratings. I just focus on my acting. I thank all the people who have supported us during this process.

Sports is a part of my life. It keeps me active and makes me happy.
