Playing the role of a Muslim student in her latest film, a young German actress has revealed that she felt a strange serenity when she put on hijab for the first time, despite people looking at her.
Celik, a 25-year-old young German actress, is playing the role of Sevda, a young Muslim high school student in Berlin who dons a hijab in the film produced by German official TV channel, ZDF.
She plays an intelligent Muslim who has liberal, non-religious parents. This girl opted voluntarily for life as a devout follower of Islam.
The movie tackles integration in the German community, portraying Muslim women as not suppressed.
