Nora Aunor called “Oro” director Alvin Yapan a liar during the senate committee hearing on Tuesday where he denied that he gave orders to slaughter a dog. “Oro” was one of the film entries during the 2016 Metro Manila Film Festival.
"Hindi po kami ang pumatay ng aso para lang sa pelikula. Ako po kasi mismo ay hindi ko kayang pumatay ng aso, hindi ko alam kung papaano pumatay ng aso,” the director said.
Nora told the committee however that the act was already on the script when she was still working on the film. Irma Idlawan, who won Best Actress replaced Nora in the lead role.
"Mayroon po sa script na papatay po sila ng dalawang aso. Ang pagkakalagay sa script: pinukpok ng pinukpok ng dos por dos [a piece of wood] iyong aso at nilaslas pa iyong bituka ng aso. Kaya hindi sila nagsasabi ng totoo, sinungaling po siya,"she said.
Aside from this, Nora also complained about the way she was replaced. According to her, she only learned that she was booted out of the movie from her director friends.
"Kaunting respeto lang po," she said.
"Oro" producer Shandii Bacolod said that aside from Nora and director Alvin’s “creative differences,” the reason why they had to replace her was because there was a conflict in the production and actress’ schedule.
