On Tonight with Boy Abunda, the stars of the primetime teleserye Born For You, Janella Salvador and Elmo Magalona, talked about their growing friendship as well as the pranks they would play on each other.
Elmo recounted, “I called her and I told her, ‘Janella, are you expecting a pizza delivery today?’ and she’s like, ‘what really?’” Janella interjected, “yung pagkasabi pa niya! Sabi niya, ‘hello Janella, the pizza has been delivered!’” much to her surprise.
Janella then tried to return the favor and as Elmo recalled, one night, around 11 o’clock in the evening while he was home, “biglang may nag doorbell. Sabi ng mom ko, ‘may delivery ka daw sa labas. Kailangan mo nang i-pick-up yung delivery.’ And then I was like, ‘kailangan ba talaga?’ Tapos wala pa akong shirt na suot cause I was at home.”
Janella wanted to somehow mimic her character on the show who does singing flower delivery, although as she said, “dapat kumakanta ako nun. [Pero] pagbukas niya ng door, [sabi niya], ‘what the?’ Tapos cli-nose niya agad! Tumawa lang ako.”
Asked how they are on set, Elmo shared, “we’re really makulit on set,” to which host Boy Abunda mused, “love starts there ha.” The actor acknowledged this and agreed, “I think so also.”
Boy asked Janella, “nararamdaman mo ba na iba na tingin sa yo ni Elmo?”
“Well Tito Boy, I think we’ve already, may level na kami na we trust each other na. And we really value each other’s company and friendship,” Janella disclosed.
Elmo agreed and commented, “masaya ako na mas nagiging close pa kami lalo.”
During the segment Fast Talk, Elmo was asked what he’d like to say to Janella’s bashers. He responded, “you should stop bashing Janella because she’s one of the most kindhearted people you’ll ever meet and there’s no reason for you to bash someone who’s kindhearted.”
