In an interview with Push.com.ph, Kris Aquino explained why she has no qualms about doing a torrid kissing scene with Robin Padilla in their upcoming soap, Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw. “E kasi tatlo naman yung anak namin dito. Paano naman nangyari yun kung wala namang love scene na naganap? [But] this is TV. So how far can you really go? Yung far na far hintayin na lang natin kasi may movie ako for that.” Kris was also confident that their intimate scenes will be done in good taste with directors Malou Sevilla and Joyce Bernal on board.
Asked how she feels now that she has finally gotten the chance to work with Robin, Kris shared that she’s really happy that he approves of the concept of their teleserye. “We’re really excited. Na-touch ako, I didn’t expect kasi he kept saying thank you sa aming dalawa ni Anne (Curtis). Parang sabi ko, we’re so important, tayo ang pinasasalamatan ni Robin Padilla. Kasi nagawan nila ng paraan to make a series that will have the elements of action. Pero pumayag si Robin na at its’ core, it’s a family drama and a love story. Lahat ng age bracket makaka-relate.”
The Queen of All Media also clued in Push.com.ph that Robin is playing a policeman whose integrity will be put to the test by certain trials in his family life. “Si Robin dito mabait, ipapakita dito talaga kung gaano kahirap ang buhay ng isang pulis na gustong maging tuwid ang landas niya kasi may darating na dagok sa buhay namin. Magkakaroon ako ng health crisis and ipapakita na talagang kahit nandun na yung temptasyon, tatanggihan niya dahil gusto niyang i-uphold talaga yung honor at respect sa kanya bilang isang pulis.”
Aside from child actress Xyriel Manabat, Kris said she can’t disclose other members of the cast yet. “Kaming apat pa lang yung sure. They’re still finalizing kung sino yung magiging tatay namin, kung sino yung kuya namin at kung sino yung two other children namin ni Robin at kung sino yung nanay ni Robin. Actually, maganda ‘to kasi maliit yung cast, as in hindi ka mako-confuse sa sobrang dami.”
