Croatian Model to Star in New Turkish Comedy Film

yelena-bozicModel Jelena Božić (24) from the Croatian town of Slavonski Brod has become the star of a new comedy film in Turkey.

The former Miss Photogenic in the 2009 Miss Universe Croatia will star alongside Turkish acting stars Murat Cemcir and the man known as the Turkish Jim Carrey Ahmet Kural in the film “Dugun Dernek”. Božić will play Latvian ‘Marika’ who is married to a Turk in a conservative Turkish town in the comedy which revolves around wedding planners. Božić landed the role after moving to Istanbul last year to pursue her modelling career. The young Croatian says that acting is definitely more difficult than modelling and also a lot more fun. The film, which is expected to be a big hit in Turkey, will premiere on 6 December.
