Zanjoe Marudo still thinks his next love would be in the business.
Zanjoe Marudo didn’t mask his surprise when asked to comment about the stark similarities between his current leading lady Bela Padilla and his ex-girlfriend Bea Alonzo.
“Yun talaga? Kamukha ba?” the actor asked during My Dear Heart’s recent press conference.
Apparently, Zanjoe has been told about the similarity. But he maintained that the two are different from one another.
“Sinasabi nila hawig… Pero siyempre ang tagal na naming magkasama ni Bela, hindi naman [sila magkamukha ni Bea],” he said. “May sarili siyang ganda.”
Since Bela’s admission of her singlehood, the press teased Zanjoe if he would ask Bela out this coming Valentine’s Day, since he has announced that he already bought a Coldplay ticket for two in advance.
“Oh sige kung wala siyang gagawin. Pero busy ang taong ‘yun eh! May pelikula, meron siyang teleserye,” he said in jest.
His latest primetime telserye marks his third lead role as a father after Annaliza and Dream Dad.
Is he’s ready to become a father anytime soon in real life?
“Gusto ko talaga kasi hindi naman nako ‘yung bata eh… Parang nasa tamang oras naman na para magkaroon ng sarili kong anak,” he said.
But Zanjoe was quick to add, “Kaya lang hindi ko naman magagawa mag-isa ‘yun.”
It appears that Zanjoe is not bet on finding a partner who is out of the industry.
“Non-showbiz kasi parang hindi ko naman sila makikita, hindi ko naman sila makikilala dahil nandito naman ako, sa shooting, sa location,” he said.
This is not to say though that he’s not hoping to find someone new.
“Sana, sana. Ito kakapasok lang ng 2017,” he ended.
