Your new movie ‘Bhalobasa Asbe Dakle’ has been released. Do you believe that what comes from the heart really comes?
I am a person who asks a lot of questions and thinks about this. Calling, taking that path, keeping one’s head, asking sincerely… I think these are important; Love is one of them. Since it has a great place in me, I have always been a seeker for love, and from now on I hope I will always be a seeker.
I guess it makes some sense that “not every searcher finds, but searchers find” …
That’s for sure! This is what cinema actually means. “Love doesn’t come unless you call.” We don’t know if you’ll come when you call, but if you don’t we won’t.
Love does not raise expectations for me Otherwise I would be a more generous person
Do you think that asking for and receiving so much is the beginning of the end?
Maybe … reunion means love turns into a relationship … the problem starts when they are already together because expectations come true. If you go to a movie with high expectations, you probably won’t like it. I think expectations create illness in the long run.
Do you have high expectations about a?
Love does not raise my expectations, on the contrary, I become a more generous person.
What kind of story is waiting for viewers for those who have not yet had a chance to watch?
The movie tells about five different relationship models. Expectations, gifts, love, desires, fame… through these five relationships we see all of these human conditions in a sweet, fun, and meaningful way.
How’s Emre? How do you bond?
Emre owns a business, he runs a cafe. And he is looking for love … He has a motto: “I will not marry until I find love”. Dilara comes to town where she stays for a commercial shoot and Emre says, “Hey, I called her and she came.” He’s a bit of an innocent, clumsy man. Since then we have been somewhat similar.
I don’t feel comfortable with the expression ‘The Young Girls’ Lovely’, it won’t be near me
The expression ‘Keremsem, the lover of young girls’ is used in almost every news article where your name is mentioned. How does this realization come to you?
Feels good. (Laughter) Of course, I don’t see myself that way. I don’t know who first put this phrase in front of my name, but there it is; Something that doesn’t fit you won’t last long … I guess it’s right for you and it stays that way.
Do you consider yourself romantic? Do you feel romantic?
Depending on what you mean by romance. If it’s a classic candle, buying flowers, someone might think I’m not romantic at all. But in general, I look at everything from a romantic point of view. I can see it better now in my 40s. In fact, I always look like this. That table, that view… even sex.
Some people make a clear distinction between sex and romance.
Of course, sex is sex, romance is romance, but I also see it from a romantic perspective.
Pride can sometimes be stronger than love
You said, “There is something that cannot be taken for love”. Don’t you take the risk?
I would certainly not set such a limit. There have been some misunderstandings. But of course it has; Pride can sometimes be stronger than love. Risking everything for love should not mean abandoning your principles.
I’m getting one more female male
There are those who think, “Marriage is coming to an end, it will disappear completely”… what do you think?
I don’t think it’s fair to generalize. In Europe, yes, people now have children out of wedlock, but I don’t think that’s possible in Muslim countries or just in Turkey.
How does the thought of remarriage feel when you think of yourself?
I always stay in the same house, in the same environment with my girlfriends. That’s why it doesn’t seem strange to me for long. In fact, I’m becoming more and more monotonous.
What is the most stable thing in your life?
This may sound a little boring, but I’m a very consistent person overall. Although I feel a change of mood within myself, my behavior is always consistent. But if I had to give a specific example, I would say love to my friends and of course.
I have never been taught love; When it comes down to it, I follow
Can you open up a little about your continuity of love?
If love comes, I always run after it. I never felt that emotion and have never followed it. In this sense, I have never betrayed love.
What happens when you leave a job or a place or someone?
I never tried to change anyone. And I don’t think anyone ever changes. If someone says to someone, “You’ve changed a lot,” in fact, your own expectations have changed. That’s why I can’t stand anyone trying to change me.
I don’t do anything specifically for love but I love to love
Do you consider yourself handsome? And do you feel the impact on the street as much as you did when you first became a celebrity?
I am a sweet man! (Laughter) I see the same attention on the street, it hasn’t changed over the years. They are always close with love. I don’t do anything specifically for love, but I love to love.
I become a better person as I get older
Where did you start, what has changed the most in your life over time, or what has not changed at all?
Almost nothing has changed in my life, but there are small subtleties that I can see within myself. Looks like I’ve become a better person. Also, when I do something, I make sure that every detail of it is very good. I even had the pleasure of making music better in my 40s.
Why did you take such a break from the song?
I asked him many questions for a while. I came here to sing my song, but an offer came, acting started and my life changed course. There was an idea that this was my main job. I also could not resist that flow. I think I lost some focus, now I’m back to it.
I think a new album is coming …
It finally comes out in June. It consists of 10 songs that I composed during the epidemic process. This album is an album where I have been involved in the whole process, from beginning to end, every line, every melody. So I am very happy and very excited.
Do you cry easily
What makes you smile the most?
Lots of smiles about yourself.
What excites you the most?
I find it very enjoyable and exciting to create something that is not in the middle of your own choice and effort. Like making new songs. I also say love and change.
What impresses you most about being a woman?
Understand. Know your point of view and appearance হওয়া be aware of yourself.
When was the last time you fell in love?
It wasn’t much, it wasn’t much.
How many times have you fallen in love?
