Toni Gonzaga looks forward to doing long-awaited movie with Piolo Pascual


100811-toni_main.jpgAfter the success of her 10 year anniversary concert in Araneta Coliseum last October 2, Toni Gonzaga admits that she is now focused on her upcoming projects for the year, which includes the launch of the biggest edition of Pinoy Big Brother at the end of the month and meetings for a proposed movie project with Piolo Pascual. Toni, who first came into the limelight via a popular softdrink commercial opposite the matinee idol, says it is one of her dreams to finally be able to do a film with Piolo. “Kasi when I transferred to ABS-CBN, that was actually one of the initial projects na alam kong gagawin ko. Na makakatrabaho ko siya. Kaso madaming nangyari along the way, na-delay ng na-delay,” she admits. The Happy Yipee Yehey! host admits that talks for their movie would’ve happened earlier if it were not for the unexpected popularity of PBB season one. “Kasi nung time na yun ang dami kong hosting jobs and at the same time dahil sumikat yung PBB tapos sobrang sikat yung mga housemates tapos si Sam na-link sa akin, so parang nagkaroon ng Sam and Toni loveteam. So ayun natuwa naman sila na nagka-tatlong pelikula kami hanggang sa naghiwalay na talaga ng landas. So nag-concentrate na ako sa TV,” she explains during her thanksgiving presscon at Don Henrico’s restaurant in Tomas Morato, Quezon City.
 
Toni says that although there has been no definite details regarding he movie yet, it is a now in her line-up of upcoming projects. “Ngayon in the last meeting that we had, merong naka-lineup na Piolo project so I’m really looking forward to that kasi hinintay ko siya ng sampung taon. I think there are a lot of scripts na pinag-aaralan and pipilian siya talaga ng magandang storya na akma talaga, para naman sulit naman yung pinaghintay naming dalawa na magkatrabaho,” she says. Now that she was able to guest Piolo in her concert, Toni says they were both excited at the prospect of finally working together on the big screen. “Yun ang pinagdarasal namin ni PJ, na sana when given the chance ay makatrabaho ko din siya,” she adds.
 
Now that her major concert for the year is done and she can focus on work again, Toni admits she is not worried about neglecting her singing career for hosting and acting again. “Ako kasi kung ano lang yung ibigay sa akin, dun ako. Ang hirap naman kasi na sabihin ko na gusto ko lang mag-focus sa singing tapos wala naman tayong masyadong offers or ginagawa sa singing. Kaya whatever opportunities come my way, yun lang ang ginagawa naming ngayon kasi di ba nga strike while the iron is hot? Hindi naman araw-araw pasko, kaya’t hanggat may mga offers, go lang ng go,” she says. But Toni admits she is also open to the possibility of pursuing an international career someday. “Siguro wala namang pinoy na hindi nangarap n asana makilala din tayo internationally. I think that’s every artists dream, to be discovered and recognized hindi lang dito sa bansa natin but also in different parts of the world. Pangarap pa rin yan na nasa back of my mind. Pero ang sa akin ngayon, kung ano yung  naibigay sa akin na blessing ni Lord, siyempre  pinagdadasal mo, pero kung ano ibigay na blessing  ni Lord, tatanggapin natin. Kasi sa sampung taon natutunan ko na napaka-importante  na dapat kuntento ka sa  anumang meron ka, kung ano ang ibinigay sa iyo,” she explains.
