Ilsur Metshin discussed with Chulpan Khamatova shooting a film, based on the novel “Zuleikha opens her eyes”
took place during the big tour of the Moscow Theater “Sovremennik”, held in
Kazan with the support of the city administration.
October, the actress told that shooting a multi-series film on the sensational
novel by Guzel Yahina “Zuleikha opens her eyes” can take place in Kazan. “Maybe
this project will also be held with the support of the city so that the
shooting was here”, she said.
But this is
still only the first drafts, the future series has no director, no approved
script, and Khamatova is not sure even in her participation in the series.
Although G. Yakhina herself would like to see this actress plays the main role.
According to the theater and cinema star, this is a very important project for
the channel “Russia”, so they do not want to rush to the terms of its launch.
filming in Kazan would perfectly fit into the recently adopted strategy for the
development of Kazan until 2030. “We will become if not the second Hollywood,
but the center of the film industry at least in Russia, the CIS, and Eastern
Europe”, I. Metshin presented one of the ideas. A series with a top actress on
a federal channel could be a good success story and an example for imitation.
