Bihter is also a socialite couple’s daughter. She wants to get revenge from her mother, Firdevs (Nebahat Cehre), because her father had died whilst catching her mother cheating on him. Therefore, she decides to marry Adnan, an older, rich and successful guy, because she thinks that by this way she can prevent her mother from marrying him. Although there is a huge age difference and although Firdevs and Adnan’s daughter Nihal (Hazal Kaya) don’t want this marriage, Bihter and Adnan eventually get married.

While searching for peace, safety and happiness in Adnan’s shore house, Bihter meets passion. At the beginning, she shows no interest in Behlul who develops a crush on her. However, as time passes Behlül and Bihter fall completely into each other and become drowned by their infatuation with each other. They start having a secret and passionate affair and their secret love affair soon affects every member of the family.

In forbidden love (Ask-i Memnu) tv series story which is based on the work of the foremost Turkish author Halit Ziya Usakligil, you will explore a secret love affair full of twists and surprises.

    • Im a turkish and trust me most of the turkish series ( especially this one, aşk-ı memnu ) doesn’t show the real turkish culture.They wear shoes inside of their houses, they wear and behave slutty and they don’t even act like real muslims.In real life turkish aren’t like that at all..

      • hi!! you are a turkish ??? i’m addicted to this series do you know where i can find it with english subtitles??? this actors are amazing!!

  38. it is good film but i think hanimin chiftlygy is better than ask memnue

  39. its best torkish film for the best turkishactor man (kivanch tatlitugh)

  40. this is the best movie i’ve ever seen ( of course after vampire diaries 😀 )
