Vice Ganda on upcoming MMFF entry: 'Hindi naman ako napre-pressure'


120413-Vice_Main.jpgVice Ganda said he doesn’t feel any pressure about the upcoming Metro Manila Film Festival. The comedian remarked that he’s not anxious at all despite the fact that his movie Sisterakas was last year’s highest grossing film in the festival.

“Pressure? Wala hindi nasaman ako napre-pressure kasi unang-una pelikula ko rin naman ‘yung top grosser [last year], kung hindi ko man siya matalo okay lang kasi at least ako pa rin ‘yung nandodoon, kasama pa rin ako sa number one,” he said.

The unkabogable star added that he is confident about his new MMFF movie titled Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy. “Ini-enjoy ko lang at confident ako don sa mga projects na ginagawa ko. Kausap ko nga ‘yung mga taga Star Cinema sabi ko sobrang confident ako dito, tatalunin nito ang Sisterakas,” he stated.

On Kris Aquino who stars in a competing movie, Vice stressed that there is no competition going on between the two of them. “Nagkakausap kami lagi, pinuntahan ko nga siya sa shoot nila eh binisita ko sila eh very minimal lang naman ‘yung role ni Kris.”

When asked whom he thinks is his biggest contender at the festival, Vice answered promptly, “Si Vic (Sotto). Siyempre lagi namang sila eh, lagi namang strong contender ang pelikula ni Vic Sotto.” But Vice believes that the market of his current film is different from Vic’s. “Eh ang layo ng market ko sa market nila kasi mostly bata sila eh, kasi ang parang bida don sa pelikula, I heard ha, Bimby and Ryzza Mae, so parang pelikula nong dalawang bata. Although may market akong bata pero mas may malawak pa ang pwede kong i-ano.

Vice relayed that Ejay Falcon and JC de Vera are his leading men in Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy. “Siyempre hindi pwedeng wala noh, meron, hand-picked, request, nakalagay sa kontrata,” he quipped. 

“Si JC super crush ko, si Ejay kasi panahon ‘yun ng Dugong Buhay eh, eh naging fan ako ng Dugong Buhay tapos hot na hot ako sa kanya nong panahong naghuhubad at nagkakalbo siya, sabi ko, ‘Okay Direk Wenn (Deramas), kunin mo ‘yan ha,’ sabi kong ganon, gawin na nating love interest ‘yan sa movie. Si JC don sa bakla si Ejay don sa babae,” he shared.
