Turkish actress Türkan Şoray, who recently arrived in the Kosovo city of Prizren as the honorary guest of the sixth annual Turkish Cinema Week, drew great interest from her fans at the Prizren University amphitheater, where she signed her book “Sinemam ve Ben” (My Cinema and I).

Following a conference at the university, Şoray attended the opening of the Turkish Cinema Week at the Culture House. Şoray, known as the sultan of Turkish cinema, burst into tears as she was overwhelmed at the warm welcome she received. “I am not satisfied with this big love and what I experienced here. I will come back again,” she said.

‘Perfect relations’

“Our citizens, who have been living in Kosovo for many years, have preserved their language, culture and arts. This also enriched the cultural richness of Kosovo and made great contribution to perfect relations between the two countries,” Turkish Ambassador to Pristine Songül Ozan said.

Şoray, who took the stage to make a speech, said the interest of the Kosovo people was one of the most special moments of my life. After the speech, Şoray’s classic film “Selvi Boylum Al Yazmalım” (Girl with the Red Scarf) was screened.
