In recent days, many people write that Chulpan Khamatova has decided to leave her native theatre “the Contemporary”, which is since 1998, nearly 20 years! Actually, of course, the actress and founder of the charity Fund “give life” is not going to go nowhere. But the star declared that she needed a break.

“It’s a shame and very frustrating to read an outright fabrications about their actions and decisions — said Chulpan. — However, this is not the first time, but get used to it difficult. I’m not going anywhere from “Contemporary”, and actress and associate artistic Director on General issues. A number of circumstances have led me to the decision to take a break in their main job, acting. Reasons I will not sound, as they concern, first, my questions to itself, to its many years of existence in the profession. I spoke with Galina Borisovna Volchek, and she understood me. From 1 January 2018 until the end of the season I take a sabbatical, leaving in February and March, the performances of “Two for the seesaw”. In these six months I will try to focus on what I am very concerned about and care. To repair in the “contemporary” was completed as announced, it was high-quality, and the theatre would return to Chistoprudny Boulevard in the autumn”.

Some fans after the official statement Khamatova came to the conclusion that the break is associated with changes in the personal life of the actress. They say that the actress broke up with her husband, Director Alexander Shane. However, in the official information documents about the divorce of Alexander and Chulpan no, although the rumors that the once sturdy pair made the difficult decision of parting, appeared long ago. For the first time in 2014. Then Alexander made a statement, calling the gossip about the divorce “complete nonsense”. Now Shane prefers to remain silent, as she Chulpan. “I do not discuss it, we are not marriage Agency” dryly commented the Director.
