Kim Chiu on being friends again with Maja Salvador: 'Wala nang closeness'


081414-kim_main.jpgAfter recently signing a new two-year contract with ABS-CBN, Kim Chiu admits she is looking forward to upcoming projects like a movie with Xian Lim and a teleserye hopefully later this year. “Sobrang good year, maraming magagandang nangyari and I’m very happy and very thankful. Nag-renew ako dito sa home network ko kung saan talaga ako nanggaling and I’m very happy na nandito pa rin ako kung saan ako nagsimula, kung saan ako unang lumabas and siyemrpe utang ko sa kanila kung nasaan ako ngayon, kung ano yung narating ko and I’m very thankful sa lahat ng magagandang projects  na binibigay nila sa akin for eight years plus na,” she shares during the contract-signing held last August 14 inside ABS-CBN. 

Apart from doing drama, the Ikaw Lamang star admits she also wants to try a different genre of acting in the coming years. “Isa sa mga gusto kong gawin siguro fantasy. Never pa akong nagkaroon ng fantasy na teleserye or movie or project, yun yung isa sa mga bagay na nilu-look forward ko. Kasi more on drama and iyakan ako, nag-comedy ako bago lang. So yun gusto ko i-explore yung mundo naman ng fantasy. Kahit ano basta may supernatural everything kiyeme kiyeme (laughs),” she admits. 

After performing on ASAP with foremer flame Gerald Anderson and his current girlfriend Maja Salvador, Kim says they are all on good terms again. But that doesn’t mean she thinks it would be a good idea to work with Gerald again just yet. “It depends sa project and sa kung ano yung kuwento. Ang daming nagtatanong sa akin pero sabi ko depende, hindi ko alam eh. Huwag muna, mainit init pa siyempre kung kami okay na kaming tatlo siyempre yung mga fans iba pa yung tingin nila so might as well i-smoothen muna natin yung mga buhay buhay. Kung sa amin as individuals okay na sa amin yung mga bagay bagay, and yung iba kasing tao iba rin yung tingin nila, not naman in a bad way but sayang lang eh if mag-te-take ka ng risk. Siguro time muna to smoothen everything na maging diretso yung daan,” she explains. 

The 24-year-old actress says she feels the same thing might happen if she does a project with Maja. “Okay naman (kami) pero huwag muna siguro kasi kung okay naman sa akin, hindi natin alam kung papano siya tatanggapin ng mga tao. Siyempre utang namin sa mga fans namin kung nasaan kami ngayon and it depends on them kung papano nila tatanggapin yun. Pero in time muna,” she says. When asked about if she will ever be as close to her former confidante, Kim candidly admits, “Wala ng closeness. Ano na lang, civil. Chika chika. Pero hindi best of friends, best of something, ganun. Okay na, wala na. Life goes on. It’s fine, wala naman na, so yun,” she adds.
