We’re already in the middle of the year, which means the Metro Manila Film Festival 2018 is right around the corner.
On Sunday, during the recently concluded 66th FAMAS Award — Coco Martin revealed that he will be teaming up with Vic Sotto for his upcoming MMFF movie entry this year. In an interview with PEP, the “Ang Probinsyano” star shared that he considers it as a great honor and privilege as he is a big fan of “Eat Bulaga” hosts: Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey De Leon.
Moreover, he said that he is beyond excited to be working with “Bossing” Vic Sotto.
“Excited? Sobra, kasi matagal ko nang pangarap na magkatrabaho kami ni Bossing. Pinalad naman na pinagbigyan niya ako, sana magdire-diretso. Isang malaking karangalan na makatrabaho ko siyenpre si Bossing.”
On the other hand, Coco Martin lauded his good friend Vice Ganda for winning the first-ever “Dolphy Comedy King Award”. He then defended the ” It’s Showtime” host against his detractors who think he doesn’t deserve the title.
“Unang-una, talagang pinaghirapan niya ‘yan. Kitang-kita ko at kung may nakakaalam no’n kaming dalawa. Parehong wala pa kami dito sa showbiz, magkasama na kami at nasubaybayan namin ang bawat isa. Lahat ng pinaghirapan namin, lahat ng panlalait, di sa amin naniniwala and then, ngayon, heto na kahit papaano nabibigyan ng pansin, nare-recognize na.”
Coco also made it clear that their fans should not compare them. Especially now, they will be competing again for MMFF.
“Ang layunin namin kasi mapaligaya namin ang mga manonood. At saka siyempre, ako naman, sabi ko nga, di kami naglalaban-laban, nagtutulungan kami para bigyan ng buhay at maging mas masigla ang Metro Manila Film Fest kapag Pasko.”
