Okay, so here’s a confession.
I love Turkish Dramas!
I cannot live without Turkish Dramas!
Wait, I think I got it.
I really wish someday I live in Turkey and be a part of a Turkish Drama!
The craze and affinity for Turkish Dramas have only been increasing in the last couple of years. An intriguing and content-rich drama that has a definite end is what we have been craving, unlike our Hindi Dramas that go on for 400-800 episodes and still don’t end. Turkish Dramas arrive with an approach of having different seasons and a storyline. Each season averages around 100 episodes with little dragging. This has recently become a new favourite in my household.
I consume a lot of content with my parents. Hence, I find content that has stories and not much adult content or nudity. This way it gets convenient to watch and enjoy with our parents or kids. Also, there will be no searching for the remote now and then fast forward the silent awkwardness.
