Vice Ganda revealed that he is now gearing up for his upcoming movie with Kris Aquino and Ai-Ai de las Alas, Sisteraka, a Metro Manila Film Fest entry this December.
The popular comedian admitted that he immediately quit worrying about This Guy’s In Love With U, Mare after it opened in theaters because he was already thinking of his next film.
After the first week showing of his movie with Toni Gonzaga and Luis Manzano, Vice said that his manager at ABS-CBN, Business Unit Head Deo Endrinal, sent him a text message and assured him that his movie was doing well at the box-office. “Sabi ko, ‘Hindi po ako nati-tense. Tapos na ako with This Guy’s In Love With U, Mare. Napi-prepare na ako para sa Sisteraka, kailangan kong mag-prepare kasi Kris and Ai-Ai no, nakaka-tense.’”
Vice described his next movie as bigger and better. “Exciting, nakakatakot, nakakakaba, nati-tense nga ako eh,” he admitted. TheShowtime host said he is just happy that Kris is back in the movie after the Queen of All Media previously announced that she was backing out and was being replaced by Ai-Ai.
“Nung nag-back out talaga siya nalungkot ako kasi hindi ko talaga alam na nag-back out siya. Nababasa ko sa Twitter. Eh ako naman hindi ako masyadong nagpapaniwala sa mga naririnig ko until sabihin niya sa akin,” Vice revealed.
But due to an MMFF ruling that celebrities who are supposed to star in film entries are not allowed to leave their designated projects, Kris had to continue work on Sisteraka.
Vice admitted he is looking forward to establishing a friendship with Ai-Ai. Early this year, Ai-Ai and Vice had a misunderstanding which only got ironed out during the birthday celebration of ABS-CBN executive Cory Vidanes.
“’Yung positibo lang ang tinitingnan ko. Ayoko kasing mabuhay sa kanegahan. Kilala n’yo naman ako, masaya lang ako. Gusto ko masaya lang ng masaya. Nilu-look forward ko ‘yon at pinaghahandaan at pag-iingatan kung anong meron kami,” he said.
