Christian Bautista hopes to make the Philippines proud with his movie.
After several months of waiting, Christian Bautista is set to shoot his first full-length international movie entitled Jayden's Choir. He is scheduled to fly today, Friday, October 15, to Jakarta, Indonesia and will be staying there for one month. In an exclusive Push.com.ph interview, Christian shared how thrilled he is that the movie is finally happening. "I am excited. I want to and I will do my best to work well and to act well with my Indonesian co-actors, mamee-meet ko pa lang sila pagdating ko dun kaya I really am excited. Pagdating ko doon iwo-workshop muna kami then after a week start na ng shoot." 'nbsp;
The Asian Sensation admitted though that he was apprehensive whether the movie will materialize since they met with the producers (Nation Pictures and Primetime Production) in the early part of this year and it took a while to get things going. "Kasi it's been a while since medyo natengga ito ngayon matutuloy na. May ganon [na kaba] kaya nga sa mga interview ko dati sinasabi ko, 'Ganito po, baka mayroong movie, baka mayroong teleserye pero hindi ko pa po sure kaya huwag po muna natin ilabas. So ngayon meron na pong movie, paalis na ako, may ticket na po ako at Visa." 'nbsp;
He promised to give his bestand make the Philippines proud. According to Christian, it is high time that Filipino artists get major roles in the international scene, just like what Charice Pempengco achieved with her character Sunshine Corazon in Glee. His role in the movie is that of a Filipino. "I am a Filipino and I will go to Indonesia because I have no work here. In the story, I'll work in a school where I will be a music teacher for special children. The factors like the language barrier'hellip;There are people na maiinggit kasi nagagawa ko to connect myself sa mga bata kahit Filipino. It revolves around that. How to live a life in another country not knowing anyone there. It's a mix of drama, comedy and light romance and more of inspirational." 'nbsp;
He added, "Sana talaga maging maganda yung performance ko, buti na lang nagkaroon ako ng Your Song (Beautiful Girl) kaya na-enjoy ko uli ang acting. I can do better I think kaya pa talaga i-improve.' Christian's leading lady is Gistra Putri, an upcoming actress in Indonesia. 'nbsp;
Jayden's Choir will be shown in Indonesia in March 2011. His management is also working on a local screening.
