Pokwang says she is on good terms with fellow comediennes Ai-Ai de las Alas and Eugene Domingo.
Pokwang is ready for when people will compare her to comediennes Ai-Ai de las Alas and Eugene Domingo again, especially since all three of them have movies that are included in the Metro Manila Film Festival this Christmas. While Pokwang is part of the film Super Inday and the Golden Bibe from Regal Films, Ai-Ai and Eugene top-bill the Star Cinema entry Tanging Ina Mo: Last na ‘To. Just like in the past, all three are often pitted against each other as to who is the best comedy actress.
But the Pilipinas Win na Win host explained that this is not something new to her. “Kumbaga nakahanda na kami d’yan. Ngayon nga lang walang Metro Manila Film Fest naiintriga, ‘di ba? Get ready na lang and focus na lang kung ano ang ibinigay sa ‘yong proyekto para mas mapaganda mo.”
Pokwang also reacted to Ai-Ai’s previous statement on The Buzz that she would not pass on her title as Comedy Concert Queen to anyone because it is something she worked really hard for. “Pinaghirapan niya kung anong narating niya ngayon, kaya tayo kung gusto mong marating ang gusto mo, paghirapan mo. Huwag kang aapak ng tao; huwag kang manggagamit ng iba. Gawin mo ang sarili mong diskarte,” Pokwang stated.
The actress-host also added she has gotten used to being pitted against fellow thespians, but it does not mean that she has existing rift with them. She maintained that she is on good terms with Ai-Ai and especially Eugene whom she has worked with in the film Apat Dapat, Dapat Apat (2006), which also starred Rufa Mae Quinto and Candy Pangilinan. “Sabi ko nga kay Eugene nami-miss ko na kasi the last time na gumawa kami ng pelikula ’yung Apat Dapat pa, eh.” She also shared that Eugene is also optimistic that they will be able to work together again.
Pokwang also revealed that she is now saving up for another house. “Pinag-iipunan ko pa,” she said but did not want to elaborate. “Lumalaki ang pamilya at dumadami ang gamit ko.” She said that this will be her second house.
