Kim Chiu is set to star in a comedy film with Xian Lim titled Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo. The actress remarked during the blogger’s conference of the movie that it would definitely give everyone a good laugh. “Kung gusto nilang tumawa na umabot sa puntong mawasak na sila sa kakatawa sa movie, ‘yung maiiyak sila sa kakatawa, ito ‘yung movie na ‘yun.”
The actress admitted she was glad to be taking a break from drama roles and venturing into comedy. “Ito full comedy kasi lagi na lang akong love story, iyak-iyak, ito naman, palitan naman natin.” She also shared how fun it was to change her apperance even in a very unflattering way. “Siyempre idea ‘to lahat ni direk Joyce Bernal. Alam mo naman si direk Joyce basta kakatawanan, kabaliwan. ‘Sige go gawin mo ‘to Kim, nakakatawa ka, mukha kang tanga.’ Tapos parang, ‘Oo sige gawin na natin.’ ‘Eh Kim parang kulang pa yung kilay mo,’ so ‘yun nakakatuwa,” she shared.
Kim relayed that she’s in awe of Direk Joyce’s comical ideas and she felt fortunate to work with the director. “Si direk Joyce, lahat sobra kaming nagtitiwala at sobrang sarap katrabaho ni direk Joyce at ang dami niyang ideas, ang dami niyang katatawanan na idea para sa movie, ginawa na naming lahat, first time kong magkulot ng ganito.”
Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo is a film adaptation of Ramon Bautista’s bestselling book of the same title. Kim shared that the movie would tackle the same topics discussed in the book. “’Yung book kasi talaga nandon na lahat, from crush, to love, from relationship to breakup and how to move on. And kung papano mag-move on ang isang babae, nandon din. At tapos papaano ‘yung medyo ‘yung one sided-love, ‘yung isa lang ‘yung may gusto. Nandon na talaga lahat, tuturuan ka talaga. At dito sa movie ginawa ‘yun. At si Ramon [Bautista] nina-narrate niya ‘yun sa movie.”
