Robin Padilla says 'Toda Max' made an impact on his personal life


122212-robin_main.jpgRobin Padilla said that he had many realizations about life because of his Saturday sitcom, Toda Max. One of them is the positive attitude of Filipinos despite the challenges in life. “Napatunayan namin dito ang sense of humor ng mga Pilipino talaga. Kahit problemado, kahit ano pa ang iniisip ng mga Pinoy, hindi nawawala ang sense of humor, ‘yan ang unang-una naming nakita at napatunayan.”

The action superstar shared that his character in the sitcom also helps him on a personal level. “Ako bilang [si] Bartolome, ako kasi ‘yung nagri-represent ng mga drayber, single parents. Marami akong natututunan dito sa script. Totoo ito, ah, na pag nababasa ko ‘yung script, minsan sumasapul sa akin,” he explained. “Una kasi, sabi nga sa Islam, bago ka mag-preach ikapit mo muna sa sarili mo. Pag may nabasa ako don tungkol sa anak, wow pare, kailangan ko itong ikapit. Kailangan kong tawagan ang anak ko, kailangan kong mag-reach out ako sa anak ko kasi sumasapul sa ‘kin… ‘Yun ‘yung mga nakikita ko na pag ‘di ko ginawa sa tunay na buhay ‘di lalabas sa istorya, kaya para sa akin, ako ‘yung unang natulungan ng Toda Max.”

When asked as to whom he would want to guest on the show, Robin answered Pres. Noynoy Aquino. He explained that the show reflects the real condition of Filipinos and by appearing on the program, the actor said that this might help the president have a real glimpse of the true lives of Filipinos. “Malaking medium ang Toda Max, marami ang nagsasabi na ganyan ang buhay namin. Ganyan ang aming problema. Isang magandang exposure na malaman niya [ang life situation na] firsthand information,” he said.
