When asked how Engen Alten Dzitan, who played the lead role in the popular Turkish drama series “Darius Ertugrul” or “Ertugrul Ghazi”, changed his personality or character, he compared the present to the present. He complained that today’s people are very artificial.
While making Ertugrul, I came to know that the people of that time were very simple, pure-hearted and innocent. After learning about the people of that time, I found out that they were very sincere and had good ideas. Modern-day human beings are not as innocent and truthful as they are, but highly artificial. I want to see innocence, sincerity and truth in people today, but unfortunately such people do not appear.
