During the press conference for the upcoming comedy film Kusina Kings, Zanjoe Marudo refused to give details on his rumored relationship with model-surfer Josie Prendergast. “Actually wala pa akong mashe-share pa. Dahil unang-una, bago pa lang kaming magkakilala, and nakakahiya din nada-drag yung name niya... Private na tao siya, so gusto kong respetuhin yun," he said.

The rumors of him linking to Josie started early this year after Instagram posts and stories showed the two looking sweet and happy together.
Meanwhile, Zanjoe commended their Kusina Kings director, Victor Kaiba Villanueva, for giving him freedom in contributing to some of the scenes in the movie. “Masaya kami, si direk kasi pinapabayaan niya kami kung anong gustong gawin namin... Nagko-collaborate kaming lahat ng cast. Kaya malapit sa puso talaga namin itong project. Kasi pakiramdam namin, hindi kami pumasok para umarte base sa script (kundi) parte na rin kami ng buong pelikula," he expressed.
Kusina Kings is part of Star Cinema's 25th anniversary offerings, showing on July 25 in cinemas nationwide.
