Daniel Padilla undeniably has become one of the biggest stars of his generation. With a recently concluded teleserye which scored high ratings, a movie that topped the local box office, and an album that reached platinum status, Daniel’s career is nothing short of phenomenal. For all his success, the young actor is very grateful to his fans whom he considers that reason behind it all.
In a The Buzz interview with Boy Abunda, Daniel remarked, “Sa lahat ng mga nagmamahal sa akin, siyempre, mas mahal ko po kayo sa totoo lang. At pinipilit ko pong ibalik yan kahit minsan po ay nagkukulang. Siyempre hindi ko naman po talaga maibabalik kung ano po ‘yung pagmamahal na ibinibigay nila sa akin. Pero sa hangga’t kinakaya ko po, gagawin ko talaga.”
Daniel has earned followers from different age groups, from kids to teenagers to even moms. As to his reaction to such a massive following, he commented, “Basta ako ginagawa ko lang po ‘yung trabaho ko Tito Boy at kung marami po akong mapasaya, mga bata man o matanda eh mas mabuti po ‘yun.”
Has it occurred to him that he already reached the peak of his career? “Hindi ho, hindi ho ‘yan totoo. Marami pa pong mangyayari sa akin. Marami pa po akong gagawin eh,” he clarified.
As for his wish after recently celebrating his birthday, he said, “Basta wish ko lang lahat ng nangyayari ngayon, sana mangyari pa po bukas, sa kinabukasan. Sana tuloy-tuloy lang.”
One of his wishes has already been granted though after “ka-MU” Kathryn Bernardo gave him a bass guitar as a present for his birthday. “Nagbi-base naman kasi talaga ko. At nong birthday ko nga, binigyan nga niya ako. Sobrang napakagandang bass talaga. Ako di ko talaga alam kung saan niya kinuha ‘yun. Nag-effort po talaga si Kathryn.”
Daniel will be holding a birthday concert titled Daniel Live at the Araneta Coliseum on April 30. Daniel is already excited about rocking it out with his fans. “Sa mga pupunta, malapit na po tayong mag rock n’ roll!”
