Lamara Sogomonyan directs the show.
The actor plays a businessman and philanthropist. This is his first experience in a foreign project. As Cengiz admitted, he had long planned to work in an international show and could not refuse such an opportunity. The series looks very high quality, stylish and expensive. He was impressed by the demonstration of the life of the Russian elite, interested in the plot, and immediately realized that he wanted to star in it. It will be a completely different role from previous works.
It seems that Turkish-Russian cooperation has already reached the level of realization of plans, and soon we will learn about the new works of Turkish stars on the Russian media market.
