DJ Durano says the conflict between him and Eula Valdez has been resolved


030211-dj_main.jpgThere 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-shortchange ang 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 or magpatanggal [ng artista]? I think hindi na uso yung ganong style. 1980s lang yung ginagawa, 2011 na ngayon so dapat tulungan na lang.”
