Elmo Magalona was quick to end speculations that he feels “threatened” by Joshua Garcia’s inclusion in his upcoming reunion soap with Janella Salvador titled Kung Kailangan Mo Ako.
In an interview with Elmo during his recording of his late father Francis Magalona’s song “Cold Summer Nights,” he shared that he’s actually thrilled to work with The Greatest Love star.
“Masaya ako actually kasi dapat matagal na kaming magkakasama, kaming tatlo nila Janella. It’s just that hindi siya natutuloy palagi,” he began.
Apparently Joshua was supposed to be part of their first soap Born For You.
Now, Elmo, Janella and Joshua are to be joined by McCoy de Leon, Elisse Joson, Nash Aguas, Alexa Ilacad, Mylene Dizon, John Estrada, and returning Kapamilya Eula Valdes in the upcoming soap.
“And then, now I’m happy kasi, like sinabi ko narin kay Joshua na gusto ko narin siyang makatrabaho soon,” he said.
Although they have yet to start taping for the show, Elmo said he’s very excited to work with Joshua.
The show’s teaser not only revealed that Joshua would come between him and Janella but that he would have a seemingly dark character.
“Siyempre para iba naman from may last serye which is Born for You. Dati sa Born For You matinee idol or artista. Dito naman mas ano siya, mas marami siyang pinagdaanan sa past niya,” he said.
Kung Kailangan Mo Ako is set to premiere on the Kapamilya channel soon.
