Maymay Entrata and Kisses Delavin shared how much they enjoyed working together in their digital movie titled Alamat ng Ano: Nura and Velma.
Fans will once again see their idols Maymay Entrata and Kisses Delavin in one project together through the iWant original show titled Alamat ng Ano: Nura and Velma.
During the press conference for iWant and InDigital Productions’ new projects, the former Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7 housemates talked about their experiences while shooting.
A story seemingly inspired by the showbiz rivalry of veteran actresses Nora Aunor and Vilma Santos, who have been pitted against each other by their solid supporters through the years, Kisses and Maymay were also asked about their own supposed rivalry and how they resolve issues.
“’Pag magkakaibigan, hindi talaga maiiwasan na may tampuhan, may problema pero sa huli, kapag nag-usap kayo ulit, baka [babalik] na rin ‘yung mga memories niyo tapos magiging okay kayo ulit. Parang magkapatid lang. Hindi niyo alam na okay na pala kayo,” Maymay, who plays the role of Nura, said.
Kisses, who plays the character of Velma, agreed, saying, “At saka ‘yung showbiz kasi temporary lang naman, eh. Like for example, in five years, iba na naman ‘yung sikat, iba na naman ‘yung mga artista so what matters most is the friendship that stayed.”
Given that their respective fans are also pitting them against each other, did Maymay and Kisses hesitate to do this project at first?
“Hindi kami nagdalawang isip po,” Maymay immediately said. “Nagchachat pa nga kami, excited pa nga kaming dalawa. Tapos, ‘nung time din naman ‘nun nagshu-shoot kami, nag-uusap din kami about ‘dun sa nag-aaway na fans. Para sa amin, pinapabayaan na lang namin,” she said, adding that they do not tolerate it.
Likewise, Kisses shared, “Hindi naman po maiwasan talaga na ‘yung society natin, pinag-aaway ‘yung mga babae sa isa’t isa… Pero ang masasabi ko lang, it’s so unfair for girls kasi parang nape-pressure sila lagi and ‘yung friendship, minsan nasisira. Pero, ang masasabi ko lang, talagang matira matibay sa mga friendships ngayon.”
As Nura and Velma will have scenes where Maymay and Kisses will need to get a little physical, the two friends said that they actually enjoyed shooting the parts. According to Maymay, they would just play around, “Sabi ni Direk (Lemuel Lorca), ‘O sige, mag-ano lang kayo diyan, gawin niyo lang kung anong gusto niyo, mag-away kayo kung gusto niyo, magsabunutan kayo, tapos si Direk na bahala kung anong kukunin niyang eksena.”
“For example po, may sa putikan. May eksena po kasi ‘dun na may palo-palo sa labahan. Tapos, ang akala ng tao, napakasakit ‘nun pero it’s actually Styrofoam so sobrang saya,” Kisses then narrated. “May scene din po ‘dun na nag-wrestling kami tapos tawa kami ng tawa. Super saya ng taping.”
