How does it feel to broadcast the 100th episode of the first directed serial drama?

When I started the drama, I was wondering if the audience would like it. I was also told from the channel that the series that is being aired now have to depend on the sponsor. If the viewers like it, there will be hundreds of episodes, otherwise, it will be closed beforehand. In the end, the 100th episode is being aired because the viewers like it. The play is ending in 104 episodes. As such I am very happy. Now the view also carries importance. After uploading each episode on YouTube, it is understood that the viewers are watching with interest, in millions and millions of views. It’s very exciting for me.

How many episodes did you want to make in the beginning?

There were plans to do a hundred episodes. The main theme of my story is marriage. In our society, there are different kinds of thoughts about the marriage of upper class, middle class, lower class. My co-writer Naomi Cameron Bidhu and I have come up with 48 points about marriage. I was able to use only 12 points in this play. There’s more to it, sequels or next season, I want to make something.

Directing and acting together, good or bad?

If you want to act in your own direction, you can’t enjoy the direction. You have to work with tension in your head all the time. When I don’t act while directing, I can enjoy directing. Sometimes it happens like this, even if you feel pressure, if you act under your own direction, the acting stands in a good place. I can take as much as I want. I can see it on the monitor. When I work under the direction of others, I can’t take the same scene again and again even if I want to. Since we can decide for ourselves, there is also this advantage.

Is it a kind of kinship?

(Laughter) It’s not just for me, it’s for everyone. Since I am an actor, everyone has supported me. There have been cases where they have been taken 30-40 times for good. As far as I understand the acting, I don’t give any concessions in that place. Most of my artists are very happy to work with me. They are also encouraging me more about direction. I tried to give what I expected as an actor while working for another director on my shooting set.

Have a dream of directing a movie?

I have been trying to make films for five years. I am working on script development. I also submitted for government grant, but did not get it. Now I am preparing like myself. The first movie may have to be made with one’s own money or the money of friends. I have to prove everything. But on the one hand, I am very lucky. I have a hard time getting everything.

What will the first movie be like — commercial or any other genre?

I don’t really think so. I mean, good movies and bad movies. I have a few stories. It seems that a movie should be made on the basis of literature or liberation war.

Is your dream to establish yourself as a filmmaker, or to continue acting?

It is frustrating and tired to dream about acting. I used to dream a lot about acting. It seems to me that acting is a dependent art. I have to look, on a good budget, in a good story, in a good character under a good director. No matter how outstanding an actor I am, it’s not really in my hands.
