Xian Lim had a big surprise last week when Kim Chiu organized a birthday party for him. In an exclusive interview with the actor, he said that he never thought that a big celebration would happen as he turned a year older.
“‘Yung effort pa lang, paano nangyari yun? Naka-organize ng ganito [si Kim], eh ang busy. Kasi nung una ang sabi parang dinner lang daw, usual dinner, tapos nakita ko nandon ‘yung kotse ko, nandon ‘yung mga friends ko, so nakakabilib,” he shared.
Xian had a great time spending his special day with the people close to his heart. He said that such things happen rarely so he truly enjoyed it. “Nakakatuwa kasi nandon ‘yung family ko, nandon si Kim, nandon ‘yung family niya, so all of us are together, actually very rare kasi nangyayari sa akin yun eh.”
The actor is now gearing up for the first launching movie of his love team with Kim, Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo. When asked how it feels now that they’ve finally made it together on the big screen, he stated, “Ako sobrang excited. Lagi naman eh. But this time siyempre may halong kaba. Heto na, lagi kong sinasabi ko sa sarili ko ito na ipapalabas na kami sa July 31 so suportahan niyo kami.”
Does he feel pressure on his part? “Nandiyan ‘yung pressure pero laging nire-remind ako ni direk Joyce (Bernal) na huwag ko munang isipin ‘yung pressure for now. What I have to do is focus on what I have to do.” Xian shared that they are still in the process of finishing the movie and he wants to dedicate his energy to that. “On going pa kasi ‘yung movie, nandon ‘yung dubbing, nandon pa rin ‘yung promo, ‘yun muna ang i-focus ko and everything will follow.”
On the controversies surrounding him and Kim, Xian relayed that they just choose to shrug off negativity and embrace positivity instead. “Hindi na namin pina-pay attention ang mga negative comments. We’re just more on the positive side and happy happy lang.”
