I’m so excited to have found this. An interview with the producer of Shahrizoda (Uzbek Cyrillic), Sa’dulla Abdullayev. I was able to get an Uzbek friend to translate the part about the girls for me. It’s quite insightful.

Shu paytgacha guruhda 12 ta qiz bo‘ldi, nechtasi turmushga chiqdi va men nechta nevarali bo‘ldim! (kuladi) Shuning uchun ham, qizlarga tayinlayman, “menga bir oy vaqt beringlar” deyman.

Translation: So far, there have been 12 girls in the group who have come and left. So many of them got married, and I became a grandfather to many grandchildren (laughs). That is why I tell girls to inform me in advance (“Give me a month’s time”) in case they are going to leave.
