Saliha Kozhakova is a perfect example of how a simple girl from a tiny village can become a real star. Despite her old age, the actress continues to shine on the stage of the Auezov Drama Theater.
Unlike most other actors, Salikh Kozhakova chose an unusual path and did not enter the academy or conservatory in the class of acting. Instead, she went to the theatre studio at the Auezov Theatre.
Two years later, the graduates were enrolled in the theater troupe, and among them was Saliha Kozhakova. The performances in which she played are quite diverse: from world classics to plays based on the Kazakh epos, the latter she gives preference to.
Often the actress can be seen on the screen as well: during her career, she managed to star in more than ten films, mostly in the Soviet period. Fans often note her playing in the ribbons "On the Wings of the Song", "My Name is Leather", "Five Brothers" and others.
