DJ Durano harbors no ill will towards Eula Valdez despite her refusal to work with him in 'Mula Sa Puso.'
There was no question about DJ Durano being part of the remake of Mula Sa Puso
despite Eula Valdez’s initial refusal to work with him. As it is,
director Wenn Deramas refused to put up with Eula and her manager Ricky
Gallardo’s demand, especially in light of the fact that she got the
role of Celina (originally portrayed by Princess Punzalan) because of
him. But after all has been said and done, Eula and Direk Wenn refused
to tackle the issue during the cast pictorial of Mula Sa Puso
at the ABS-CBN compound last Tuesday, March 1.
DJ on the other hand had no qualms about saying his piece once more,
adding that he already made peace with Eula about it. “All’s well that
ends well. I honestly don’t have any sama ng loob kung kanino man, kay
Eula man or kay
Ricky. Alam ko
he has his own reasons. And maybe, may mga rason tayo kung bakit nila ginawa yun.
And ang sa akin naman e gusto ko lang magtrabaho. Kung ano man yung usaping ganong bagay, iiwan ko na sa mga
manager kasi ang trabaho ko lang naman ay umarte
,” said DJ in an interview with Push.com.ph
and other ABS-CBN entertainment reporters.
The actor further shared that he wouldn’t have accepted the role of
Ysmael (originally portrayed by Efren Reyes Jr.) if he knew that he
wouldn’t be able to give justice to it to begin with. “Ever since naman naniniwala naman ako sa kakayahan ko.
And sa tinagal-tagal ko na rin sa industriya
, I know what I’m worth, so walang kung sino mang artista
[ang pwedeng magsabi
] sa akin na bakit ako kinuha sa
role? Kasi ako mismo
if I feel na hindi ako bagay sa
role, ako ang magsasabi sa
manager ko na ayoko
. But if I feel that I’m worth it and I can deliver, hindi ko isho
ABS-CBN, then I will do my best kasi yun ang kailangan
DJ also expressed his gratitude to his manager, Direk Wenn, for defending him in this controversy to the very end. “Ang
sa akin lang naman pasasalamat kasi kahit naman sino siguro, kung ang
gusto mo lang naman ay magtrabaho ng marangal at magbigay ng kasiyahan
sa ibang tao, bakit naman kailangan magpapalit
]? I think hindi na uso yung ganong
style. 1980s lang yung ginagawa
, 2011 na ngayon
so dapat tulungan na lang
