Robin: Rustom is alive in my heart

BB Gandanghari may have repeatedly said that Rustom Padilla is “dead,” but his brother Robin Padilla seems to disagree. Robin insists that Rustom is alive in his heart.

At the press conference for the first anniversary of Kapamilya sitcom “Toda Max,” Robin shared that he is willing to guest his brother on the show, but only if he appears as Rustom.

“Si utol naman masaya naman siya. Masaya na din kami at marami ding masaya para sa kanya pero siguro kung ige-guest namin siya, siya si Rustom at hindi siya si BB. Kasi mayroon ng Vice Ganda ang ABS-CBN. Huwag na nating dagdagan ng isa pa. Okay na siya doon sa channel 5, kapag nandito siya ay siya si Rustom,” Robin said.

Cold war?

The “Toda Max” actor revealed that he and BB are not in speaking terms and try to avoid each other. Robin said that he loves his brother and will always be there for him, but hopes BB understands his (Robin’s) religion and beliefs.

“Kapag nandoon siya, hindi ako pupunta, kapag nandoon ako, hindi siya tutuloy. Siguro masaya na kami muna doon. Basta alam niya ako ay masaya dahil masaya siya at alam niyang kapatid niya ako at hindi ko siya itatabla. Kapag kailangan niya ako ay darating ako sigurado. Pero sa ganitong pagkakataon, pareho kaming may religion, may religion ako at may religion siya. Dapat niya akong maintindihan doon at naiintindihan ko din siya,” Robin added.

He hopes BB would get past his current way of dressing, which Robin describes as  “sobra.” It will be recalled that BB called himself “an androgynous in process.”

“Sana lumipas na iyon, sana gumradweyt siya doon. Kapag grumadweyt siya doon ako ang unang yayakap. Siyempre kanya-kanyang estado iyan, sa pagsusuot ng mga bagay na para sa akin ay sobra. (Para) sa kanya ay hindi,” Robin said.

While he doesn’t approve of BB’s transformation, Robin admitted that he doesn’t want to “tame” his brother and control his freedom.

“Ayaw ko naman siyang mag-tame dahil ibig sabihin noon ay parang pinigil ko siya sa kanyang kalayaan, dapat lang ay may estado lang. May gulong iyan eh, pag-ikot niyan, ako naman yun makikita niya sa baba.”

Robin believes BB is just undergoing a phase in his life and he’ll get over it one day.

“Huwag muna tayong magkita 'tol dahil para sa akin eh sobra iyan,” Robin addressed BB. “Sa panahon na okay na siya, kasi lilipas din iyon, eh nandiyan ako.”

BB Gandanghari Only on OMG! Part I BB Gandanghari Only on OMG! Part II

Not just for laughs

Robin is happy for the success of “Toda Max,” which also stars Angel Locsin, Vhong Navarro and Pokwang. He explained that they don’t just make people laugh, they also impart values.

“Ang lagi naming nilalagay sa sarili namin ay yung iiwang aral. Kapag sa taping namin, ang una naming pinag-uusapan ay kung anong aral na maiiwan namin (sa episode). Maganda rin na hindi kami nagsasapawan dito. Kung na kay Vhong ang istorya, lahat kami ay nakasuporta.”

Guests in the show’s month-long anniversary celebration called “Tribute to ABS-CBN Comedy Shows” are Epi Quizon, Vandolph Quizon, Ai-Ai delas Alas and Richard Gomez.

Robin dreams of having President Noynoy Aquino as guest in the show.

“Ang ‘Toda Max’ kasi ay kwento ng mga Pilipino. Palagay ko malaking medium ang ‘Toda Max.’ Marami kasing nagsasabi sa amin na ‘Ahh ganyan ang mga problema namin.’ So, sana next time mapagbigyan kami ni PNoy.”
