Christian Bautista believes that acting will boost his career further


032711-christian_main.jpgChristian Bautista said recently that he plans to concentrate more on acting to boost his showbiz career. As a matter of fact, he is slated to do a teleserye either this year or next year. “Kasi I believe that’s the only way to really make a mark in the Philippine industry,” he justified. The last teleserye that the balladeer did was Kampanerang Kuba in 2005 with Anne Curtis and Luis Manzano. Christian shared that the said teleserye was an enjoyable experience to him. This time, Christian said that he does not mind going shirtless in an acting project if the scene requires it and that he is also ready to do more mature roles.

Christian is now waiting for the release date of his first major movie, which was produced and shot in Indonesia. He plays the role of a Filipino who flies to Indonesia to search for his mother and later ends up in a school with special kids with musical talents. He becomes a teacher who encourages the kids to compete.

While he waits for his acting projects to get off the ground, he said he also plans to continue doing music and to try his hand as a composer. “Ang challenge naman ngayon sa akin gusto kong gumawa ng album na marami namang original kasi kailangang bigyan ng bagong dugo ang OPM (Original Pilipino Music). Kailangan mas marami nang original. Halimbawa, natutuwa ako kay Yeng Constantino kasi ang niri-release niya original lahat, gawa niya lahat. So lahat nag-hit. Nakaka-inspire so sana makagawa rin ako ng kanta ko. Si Echo (Jericho Rosales) nga ‘di ba ‘yung kanta nanalo pa tapos nag-hit pa. So sabi ko, ‘Echo, grabe ka naunahan mo pa akong magsulat ng hit song.’”

Christian explained that a singer gets more fulfillment if he gets to sing songs that he has composed himself. At present, Christian said that he is still practicing composing songs and is hoping that his efforts will pay off in the future. “ Si Yeng kasi kayang gumawa ng hit song in five minutes, eh. Ako, kapag gumawa ng kanta parang high school ‘yung lyrics so inaayos ko pa ulit. So ‘yung kapatid ko nagpapatulong ako, magaling eh. Kasi may mga simpleng words na ‘pag pinag-join mo magiging maganda. So inaaral ko pa ‘yun eh.”
