Vice Ganda shares what changed in his life after Director Wenn Deramas passed away


01117ViceGanda-PUSH.jpgVice Ganda was very happy at the victory party of his latest blockbuster film with Coco Martin, the “Super Parental Guardians.” While sharing how he was convinced by Coco to work with him, he remembered the late director Wenn Deramas, who helmed all of his comedy films that were part of the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).

"Kapag tinatanong nga nila, anong pinakamalaking dagok mo sa 2016, sabi ko isa lang, 'Iyong namatay si Direk Wenn Deramas.' Kasi nung mga nakalipas na taon ang daming kong dagok, pero ito isa lang pero bongga. Parang ako rin kasi iyong namatay,” he said.

"Ang laking bahagi ng pagkatao ko, ng kaluluwa ko, ng puso ko ang namatay at hindi ko alam kung papaano ko ito bubuhayain. At hindi lang naman ako, naramdaman ko ang takot din ng mga katrabaho natin,” he added.

"The Beauty and the Bestie" set the record for the highest grossing MMFF film of all time and that was also his last project with Direk Wenn, who died last February 29, 2016.

"Hindi ko alam kung paano ako magsisimula ulit. Back to basics ako, neophyte ulit ako. At ang tanong ko lagi, sinong direktor ang magtiya-tiyaga sa akin? Sinong direktor ang papayag na tanggapin iyong hamon na makatrabaho mo iyong isang baklang matigas ang ulo na si Vice Ganda? At iyong hamon na kaya mo bang sundan ang pelikula ni Wenn Deramas?"

Bb. Joyce Bernal stepped up and directed their latest movie, which almost reached P600 million. Vice was initially offered to direct his own film given that he wanted to be more hands on with his projects but failed to take directing classes abroad so he had to refuse because he felt that he needed to learn first.

He then said that he felt refreshed working with new faces.

"Sa simula maraming duda pero everything fell into the right place."
