Real-life couple Mika Dela Cruz and Nash Aguas worked together for the first time as a couple. But did you know that they felt weird about the idea of working with each other for an on-cam project?
Fans felt the kilig upon watching the endorsement of Mika and Nash that showcased their undeniable chemistry. But the couple had mixed feelings before accepting the project.
According to Mika, she found the idea of working with Nash “weird” because contrary to the assumption that they would find it easy to put on a show since they are both working in the entertainment industry, they don’t want to be paired as a love team.
“Sobrang nakakatuwa, sobrang naninibago kami ni Nash. Kasi ito ‘yung first time na nagkatrabaho kami for an endorsement na parang as kami. So sobrang weird kasi hindi naman kami mga showbiz na tao,” Mika said.
“Tsaka hindi namin actually ginusto noong una na magkatrabaho kasi parang alam mo ‘yun, parang ayaw namin to be together para lang sa love team,” she added.
The 22-year-old actress went on to say that both of them agreed that they don’t want their personal lives to get mixed up with their love life.
“So, ayun ginawa naming rule ‘yun na ayaw naming simulan na maging ganu’n ‘yung setup namin, ‘di ba? Para kung ano lang talaga kami, hindi mahaluan ng work at hindi mahaluan ng showbiz,” she stated.
Sharing her experience working with Nash during the entire shoot, she said: “Ayun nag-enjoy ako. Noong una sobrang kabado kami ni Nash. Si Nash hindi na makapag-concentrate sa pag-gigitara niya pero nairaos dahil okay ‘yung set namin. Everyone was so kind. Everyone was so warm. Ayun, nag-warm-up naman si Nash tapos maya-maya hindi na din siya kinakabahan.”
Mika and Nash worked together during their childhood days for the now-defunct ABS-CBN kiddie gag show Goin’ Bulilit.
Nash confirmed his relationship with Mika back in 2018.
