For those who doesn’t know, Kris Aquino, who backed out in the movie ‘Sisteraka‘ last month, is now officially part of the project again.
However, Delas Alas, who was supposed to replace Aquino, revealed that the MMFF rules state that an actor/actress cannot back out from a movie entry but its production house can decide to add to the cast.
Delas Alas said this was the reason Star Cinema and Viva Films decided to just put the three of them together in the movie.
“Nagkasakit na nga siya so sabi niya sana ako na ang pumalit sa kanya sa MMFF. Sabi ko siyempre, sure. Hindi naman ako aarte, sayang din naman ang kikitain ko doon. Mami-miss ko rin naman ang MMFF, so umoo ako sa kanya. Pero ang alam ko siguro mga one-fourth ng rules ng MMFF, bawal na magtanggal pero puwede magdagdag. So parang hindi pumayag ang MMFF na wala siya. Bale tatlo na kami ngayon,” delas Alas explained on “The Buzz” on Sunday.
Delas Alas said she is looking forward to shooting the movie since this will be her first time to work with Vice Ganda and Aquino in a movie.
Now if you noticed, both Ai Ai delas Alas and Vice Ganda were winners in the 43rd Box-Office Entertainment Awards. The former is one of the winners of ‘Box-Office Tandem Award,’ while the latter is the first ever winner of ‘Phenomenal Box Office Star Award.’ And also take note that Kris’ Segunda Mano, did well in last year’s MMFF. In short, three Box-office stars will join forces to make one huge Box-office movie before this year ends.
