The theater play ‘Name is Aylin’, produced by Tuba Ünsal and starring in the lead role and the preparations of which took three years, bearing the same name as Ayşe Kulin’s novel, opened the curtain last February. Explaining that he worked with a great staff from his actor to his technical team, Ünsal told the press members that the preparation of the game took three years and that he also struggled with the difficulties of being a producer.
The actor said, “It is an interesting situation for me, it’s been five years since I got the rights and I went through a difficult process as a female producer and as an actress on the last straight. Today, there is a great joy, sadness and bitterness to be entrusted to the audience. Great contribution of all my actress friends. “It was a good adventure, we are all excited. The preparation took three years, we have been rehearsing for about 3.5 months. We have a big dance and music team behind us. A big show awaits the audience on the stage.”
Regarding the difficulties of being a producer, Ünsal said, “As a woman, your path is not bright when you are innovative, expanding your boundaries and doing things in this geography. That’s why it is very important to have support. My path was not very bright either. It was a difficult experience, it was really a difficult experience from everyone in the team, from the assistant to the make-up artist. It was important for me. The challenging adventure for me ended after I entered the rehearsals, and my path began to light up after that, and I saw the light in the tunnel’s beam when I got together with this team.”
The actress, who thanked everyone at the gala, expressed her feelings on Instagram by saying, “I thank ‘I’, who learned to see hope in every difficulty I faced, and showed the courage to live without losing my enthusiasm in the face of difficulties.” It was noteworthy that Tuba Ünsal, who met with Ayşe Kulin before the play, was touched by the words used by the famous writer about herself, and her eyes filled with tears. Kulin said, “There is an Aylin standing next to me because she is as determined as she is. It is so difficult to stage a musical together with many activities. We said, ‘Make a series or a movie,’ but she insisted, ‘Where will she find a sponsor or something?’ He is so determined that it is as if Aylin has entered both physically and spiritually…”
The famous writer said; He continued, “He resisted, endured, found and did it. I admire him endlessly. I was jealous of his uniforms so I wore this and came. I appreciate the brave ones, people like you very much,” he continued. On the other hand, it was learned that the player, who spent 4 million TL for the production of the game, took a loan from the bank. It was claimed that Tuba Ünsal had mortgaged her house in return for the loan.
Tuba Ünsal, who stated that she provided a budget for the theater play by taking credit, said; She said, “I am a professional business woman. I have been making films and theater in my own production company for about eight years. I am the producer of most of the projects I act in. I invested the money I earned from the theater in the theater again. People looked at me as crazy because of it. But this is one of the things that makes me happy.”
‘Her name is Aylin’ was heavily criticized after the premiere. Ünsal decided to postpone the screening of the play, which cost 4 million TL, for the script revision after these criticisms. Tuba Ünsal was seen in Bebek with her close friend, model Ece Sükan, last night. Eating out of the venue where they had fun, the duo answered the questions of the press members at the exit.
40-year-old Ünsal told reporters, “The theater named Aylin had its premiere, but it did not continue after the criticism. Has the project been cancelled?” answered the question. The famous name, who is both the producer and the leading role of the game, said, “Of course, there was no problem with the sponsor. There is no problem with Ayşe Kulin, we talk every week, there is no such thing.”
