Actor-politician Sen. Bong Revilla remains mum about his rift with Hayden Kho.
Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr. refused to comment any more about having a "word war" with Hayden Kho. Hayden called the senator narrow-minded after the actor-politician commented that people should not easily forget about Hayden'rsquo;s scandalous sex videos that involved female celebrities.
At the press conference of film, Sen. Bong dodged the question about the possibility of using the perfume that Hayden is endorsing and replied, "Ang title ng pelikula namin ay Si Agimat at si Enteng Kabisote," suggesting that he would only want to talk about the film. A member of the press still prodded for his reaction about being called "narrow-minded" by Hayden, and he replied, "Okay lang," before repeating the title of his movie.
The actor-politician'rsquo;s mood then turned lighter when asked about the condition of his father, former senator Ramon Revilla Sr. "My dad is okay, palakas siya nang palakas ngayon, nakakapalakpak na siya," he beamed. He added that he and his family are planning a big celebration for the veteran actor'rsquo;s birthday early next year. Sen. Bong also related that until now, he still consults his father when it comes to his projects.
Meanwhile, Sen. Bong also said that he is proud of his son Jolo'rsquo;s accomplishments. In the previous elections, Jolo won as a barangay chairman in Cavite. "Sinabi ko sa kanya ang responsibilidad na nakaakibat d'rsquo;yan dapat panindigan niya," the senator said. He continued that he told his son that he is young and has a long way to go, but reminded him to be responsible public servant. "Kailangan panindigan mo ang posisyon na pinasok mo at 'lsquo;yun naman ang ginagawa niya, proud naman ako sa bata."
The senator was also asked what he would advise his son since he is into both showbiz and public service. "Mamimili 'lsquo;yan sa dalawa. Kung shooting or 'lsquo;yung pagiging public servant niya. Pipiliin niya siguro ang pagiging public servant. 'lsquo;Yun ang basa ko sa kanya." 'nbsp;
The senator also said that he feels honored to do a movie with Vic Sotto. This early on, many entertainment critics are making a forecast that their MMFF entry will be the biggest top-grosser. "It'rsquo;s an honor to work with him (Vic). Napakalaking artista. No wonder kung bakit nananatili siyang andon at napaka-cool niya. Very professional, wala akong masabi sa kanya," he said.
