We’ve never really heard his real voice & cannot pronounce his name if our lives depended on it.

Status: Married

Born: Adana (Turkey)

Birthday: 1983

Who is he?

We’ve never really heard his real voice, could not pronounce his name if our lives depended on it and assume that he’ll speak perfect Urdu if we ever meet him — that’s Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ, the Turkish Brad Pitt for you currently starring in Manahil aur Khalil on Express Entertainment.

Not only have nanis, daadis, khalas and bhateejis across Pakistan fallen into a ‘mamnoo ishq’ with this actor, aunties from the Arab World, Bulgaria, Greece and even Israel can’t resist his blonde hair, steely blue-green eyes and his eyegasmic body.


Why he is droolworthy

Before he gained massive success as an actor, he had set out to be a professional basketball player. He totally has the body for it! He played the game for a few years before an injury and his father’s deteriorating health condition forced our hottie to quit and look at other avenues.

His good looks landed him a contract with a French modeling agency. Soon, Tatlıtuğ moved to Paris and was reaping the rewards of his good looks with all kinds of international awards and fame.

Seeing the international reaction, the Turks cast him in his first soap opera called Gümüşş.  Ever since then, there has been no looking back for the hottie who has given the donner kebab-loving nation hit after hit.

Even multinationals have latched on to his hotness and have been promoting their products through him. Check out his Magnum advertisement where he’s looking yummier than the chocolate bar itself.

What you didn’t know about him

In Nov 2012 he married former Miss Turkey and Miss World 2002 Azra Akin with whom he’s has had a very soap opera-like on-and-off relationship for a long while.

Together with this Dutch-born-Turkish beauty, looking as glamourous as Mr And Mrs Smith, they always leave the screen sizzling and the paparazzo’s tongues wagging.

On his ideal woman

“This is not an order you give. You can’t just go by blond, brunette, red-haired or blue-eyed. You are automatically drawn to someone whose spirit and soul attracts you,” he says.
