Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ and Beren Saat: a new film?
This week, the Turkish press gave a new sensation: Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ and Beren Saat will work together in the Netflix movie. However, is this information true?
Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ and Beren Saat are one of the most popular duos of Turkish show business. The series Forbidden Love starring both actors that ended 9 years ago, still causes great interest among Turkish and world audience. This week, another repeat of the legendary project entered the twenty most viewed television programs in Turkey ahead of the repeat of popular new series such as Love for show.
Not surprisingly, rumors that Kıvanç and Beren will work together again appear in the Turkish press almost every year. Alas, Turkish producers are very afraid of repeating pairs fearing that they will not succeed, and will be blamed for failure. The appearance on the television market of a new strong player: the Netflix Internet platform, once again aroused the hopes of Bihter and Bihlul fans. They expect that American producers will not be as shy as their Turkish counterparts. Moreover, Beren Saat is already working with the company and, according to rumors, Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ is preparing to sign a contract with Netflix.
This turned out to be enough for not too picky Turkish bloggers to give out a new “sensation.” According to them, Netflix did not obtain a sufficient increase in the number of subscribers in Turkey after the release of its first original Turkish projects. The management of the platform has decided that it was time to play the strongest card they had been holding back. The bloggers claim that a Netflix movie starring Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ and Beren Saat will begin shooting next summer. Inspired by this information, the Turkish media and television immediately made a sensation, having trumpeted that the Kıvanç-Beren duet would work together again.
Alas, these are just fantasies that many would like to pass off as truth. Beren Saat is currently filming the Netflix Atiye / The Gift series, the first season of which will be released on the platform in December this year. Next year we are waiting for the release of the second season of the project. If it succeeds, Netflix will renew the Gift for another two seasons, as it has already happened with the series The Protector starring Çağatay Ulusoy. So, apparently, next summer Beren will be busy working on the Netflix series, where Mehmet Günsür will continue to be her partner. As for Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ there is so far no certainty that he has signed an agreement to work with the Internet platform. If this happens, then Netflix will develop his own series.
Moreover, the allegation that Netflix is not satisfied with the results of subscription to the platform in Turkey does not correspond to reality. According to the well-known journalist Sina Kologlu, the number of Netflix subscribers in Turkey has now increased to one million accounts, whereas at the beginning of the year it amounted to 200-250 thousand. Such explosive growth surpasses all optimistic expectations of management and no one thinks “save the situation” as dreamers say.
Alas, the dreams of fans are futile. In the coming years, we can not expect the repetition of the famous duo. But we still do not lose hope.
