From the Interview with Birce Akalay

Birce Akalay Interview


  1. i loved the deep love of YUisuf and Havva. but justice was not served. yusuf and havva should have lived to see their baby and hamiyet and bade should have been punished.

  2. I still want her to be with Yusuf from love is in the air. so deep love and so much suffering. there was no justice in that series as hamiyet and bade should have been punished

  3. The ending with Havva and that scoundrel Yusuf dying was so sad..

    • You just gave away the ending!
      These Turkish series end up being the big tease when the resolution to the plot is not available.

  4. Please put more seasons of Love is in the air on Netflix !!

  5. Love the movie Love is in the air. Great actors and actresses. I love watching Turkish movies, so interesting. Thank you, Birce Akalay! Great performance!
