From being governor, veteran star Vilma Santos is now the representative of the newly-created sixth district of Batangas.
Instead of being called Cong. Vi, the Star for All Seasons, in a recent interview on Ricky Lo’s column for The Philippine Star, laughingly shared that she prefers to be called “Congee.”
The seasoned actress has already served as Batangas Mayor and Governor both for three terms already.
Now, with a new designation, Vilma shared that she will be shuttling to and from Batangas and Manila to attend sessions in the Metro.
Vilma stressed that she is going to have a relatively looser schedule compared to when she was still a mayor and a governor.
Although she has seemingly poured her heart into public service, Vilma assured fans that she still has her heart for showbiz. In fact, she points out that having a new designation would not mean that she is leaving show business for good.
“Same pa rin. I might do one movie every two years, every three years,” she said.
Vilma’s last movie was Star Cinema’s Everything About Her, where she co-starred with Xian Lim and Angel Locsin.
