Maja Salvador hopes to give justice to her role in Inday Sa Balitaw


With Precious Hearts Romances Presents Impostor now down to its final week, Maja Salvador'rsquo;s next project will be the TV adaptation of Inday Sa Balitaw, which was a 1986 hit fantasy-comedy film that starred Maricel Soriano. "Maganda 'lsquo;yung story ng Inday Sa Balitaw, kumbaga nakakatawa tapos maiiyak din kayo," Maja said of her upcoming project that will be featured next on Wansapanataym.

Maja said that there is a big pressure in reprising the role previously portrayed by the Diamond Star, but is glad that her sidekick in the series, Mel Martinez, coincidentally Maricel'rsquo;s nephew, is very supportive of Maja. "Sobrang nagpapasalamat ako kasi si Kuya Mel kasama ko siya [at] nagtatanong ako sa kanya, grabe ang bait, binibigyan niya ako ng [tips] kung paano [kumilos] si Ms. Maricel dati."'nbsp; She went on that she constantly consulted Mel to make sure that her imitation of his aunt'rsquo;s mannerisms is just right. "Nagtatanong ako sa kanya kung OA (over-reacting) ba 'lsquo;yung ginagawa ko, okay naman." Maja proudly said that their director commended her and Mel because their team-up is very much like the Maricel-Roderick Paulate team-up in the said movie.

Maja added that she also searched for videos of the seasoned actress in her younger days so she could really capture her mannerisms and looks. "Dapat magawa mo 'lsquo;yung pagkakaganap ni Ms. Maricel Soriano sa Inday sa Balitaw kasi click na click."

The Impostor star said that it her latest project is a dream-come-true. She related that she felt envious when she learned that Melai Cantiveros would play the role of Inday Bote for Wansapanataym, which was also a hit movie of the Diamond Star. "After one week sabi naman si Maja ay si Inday sa Balitaw so na-excite ako," she shared.

Known as a versatile actress, Maja explained that she enjoys doing drama and comedy and added that if given the chance, she would also like to do action.
