Vice Ganda is feeling the jitters now that comedienne Ai Ai delas Alas is reportedly being eyed as Kris Aquino's replacement in the Metro Manila Film Festival entry “Sisteraka”.
“Honestly, maiilang ako. Kasi natatakot ako sa kanya, nahihiya. Kababati lang namin, natatakot akong magkamali, ayaw ko siyang ma-offend. Gusto kong maging mabuti ang tingin niya sa akin, maging mabuti ang aming relasyon. Kung gaano kami ka-okay, gusto kong pangalagaan,” he said at the press conference of his upcoming movie “This Guy’s In Love With You Mare” on Thursday, September 27.
But he assured everyone he would love to work with Ai Ai. Reviving their friendship, however, is another thing altogether.
“Panahon siguro, huwag madaliin. Kababati lang tapos feeling close ako agad, baka mabuwisit naman sa akin iyon. Gusto ko dumating ang panahon na pwede ko nang tanungin na 'Ms. Ai, ano po ang number niyo?”
On Kris’s 'Sisteraka' exit
Vice Ganda revealed how he learned about Kris Aquino's decision to sacrifice “Sisteraka” for health reasons.
“Ang alam ko lang, nag-backout si Kris kasi nag-tweet na kasi nga may nodules. Tapos, tinanong ko siya, ‘Ano ito, totoo ba?’ Sabi niya,‘Oo, nag-usap na kami, nagpalaam na ako, hindi ko na kayang gawin,’ sabi niya sa akin.” He added, “Meron siyang teleserye, yung “Kris TV” niya, tapos gagawin pa niya itong pelikula. (Sabi niya) Meron akong kailangang isakripisyo.’ Mas gusto niya ang hosting. ’Kapag naapektuhan ang lalamunan ko, maaapektuhan ang paghu-host ko.’ So, ako ang pinakahuling nakaalam”.
The comedian further explained that he and the production team still have to discuss the issue.
Insiders at Star Cinema, producer of “Sisteraka,” promised that the film outfit will release a statement about Kris’ exit from the movie.
Meanwhile, With the hit movie “Praybeyt Benjamin” behind him, does Vice Ganda feel pressured about coming up with another blockbuster?
“I don’t pressure myself in becoming a box-office artist. I pressure myself to be a great performer,” Vice Ganda replied. “Kampante ako. Ito yung pinakamagandang pelikula na nagawa ko. Mas maganda ito sa “Praybeyt Benjamin.”
“This Guy’s in Love with You Mare”, also starring Toni Gonzaga and Luis Manzano and directed by Wenn Deramas, opens in cinemas on October 10.
