In a teaser video posted on the Facebook page of shawarma business Turks a few weeks ago, it showed a shot of Cruz’s back. It lasted only a few seconds but it already has 3.2 million views, and has been shared almost 800, with a large number of comments.
Cruz took an indefinite leave of absence from showbiz in October 2017 to attend to “personal matters”.
