Arjo Atayde also shares what he thinks of those who have been bashing him online.
After starring in the iWantTV digital series Bagman and Regal Films rom-com Stranded, Arjo said he still has a busy schedule for the year “I’m very, very thankful for everything. Sabi ko nga very overwhelming lahat ng nangyayari. I have a lot of things to do. Well one of my plans is I’m producing soon as well. I’m getting into producing very soon, maybe at the last quarter of the year our film is going to come out. I’ll announce it very soon but for now I’m sticking to it by project. I promise you guys kakaiba talaga sobra," he shared.
Arjo credited his mom Sylvia Sanchez for initiating him into the workings of the industry. "Sa daddy ko talaga nakuha yun. Walang kinalaman mama ko (laughs). I’m thankful. I believe that being an actor, it all depends on your sensitivity. Sobra. Instinct and pag-re-react. And I’m very thankful naman din. It’s a big help of course that my mom’s in the industry kasi at least alam ko yung mga pros and cons ng mga bagay bagay ‘di ba bago pa ako pumasok. I think there’s an advantage if your mom’s an actress. But whatever I worked for, I acted my ass off," he explained.
As for the netizens who have been posting negative comments online due to their disapproval of his rumored relationship with Maine Mendoza, Arjo admitted he is not affected by anything they say. “Wala akong pakialam. I’m the wrong person to talk about bashing. Wala akong pakialam. Bashers will be bashers. Wala akong pakialam sa kanila. Wala talaga, I don’t even read. I have no time to read. My family is supportive of whatever I choose to do,” he said.
