  1. Finished Ask-i Memnu again early morning and it was still Soo sad and Bihter’s funeral made me cry… It is heartbreaking Behlul couldn’t save his love Bihter… They were so perfect for each other… Then his scene crying and apologizing at her grave, accepting himself as pathetic and confessing his love for her was tooo emotional and bittersweet 😭 and the mansion empty is so emptying… What to do after such a sad ending… I forgot how crippling this feeling was after the show… 😭💔 At least, there is Bihter & Behlul’s new movie “Last Call for Istanbul” now released November 2023!
