“Globally, there is no series or movie for a main character who wears a hijab, has a non-Muslim girlfriend and does everything that is not allowed,” Lali Jul said. According to her, this is because the topic will be very controversial.
Gul is in talks with five interested parties. “I haven’t made a decision yet,” she says.
“I don’t know what would be the best form to pour my story into.” The writer also does not yet know if she wants to participate in the production.
