- Robin Padilla gave up something for teleserye with Jodi Sta. Maria
- He also encountered struggles for the series
- The pressure was not easy for him
During the presscon of ABS-CBN's new teleserye Sana Dalawa Ang Puso, Robin Padilla dishes out details about the struggles he encountered for the new series with Jodi Sta. Maria and Richard Yap.
He also revealed what he gave up to be able to do the new series which was reported by PEP.
According to Robin, they were already filming Bad Boy 3 when Ms. Malou Santos asked him to do a teleserye.
"Noong nagsu-shooting kami ng Bad Boy 3, sinabi sa ‘kin ni Betchay [Vidanes, Robin’s manager], na pinatatawag na daw ako ni Ms. Malou Santos kasi magsu-soap na nga raw ako.
"Matagal kong pinag-isipan yun, kasi nasa Pangasinan nga kami kasi nga nagsu-shoot kami ng Bad Boy 3, sabi ko kapag lumuwas akong Manila ay malamang na hindi na matutuloy ang project ko na ito [Bad Boy 3].
Robin admitted that it was hard for him to give up filming of the said movie, but he can't say no to his Ma'am Malou.
"Wala akong nagawa kasi nahiya din ako kay Ma’am Malou at nahiya din ako kay Jodi. Isinantabi muna namin ang pagsu-shoot ng Bad Boy 3 at inuna ko itong teleserye kasama si Jodi."
He also revealed the struggle he faced because of the shifting of projects.
When they were filming Bad Boy 3 he said "ang laki ko noon" but when they were about to do the soap with Jodi, they asked him to lose weight to match the latter's frame.
After 2 weeks of taping for the soap he was told that he has to gain weight again because they will start filming his movie with Sharon Cuneta, Unexpectedly Yours.
Robin: "Hirap na hirap ako sa buhay ko sa ABS-CBN! Oo, totoo!"
"Noong nagsu-shoot kami ng Bad Boy 3 ang laki ko noon. Sabi nila magte-taping na kami nitong Sana Dalawa Ang Puso so nagpapayat ako, kasi sabi nila maliit si Jodi, kaya kailangan kong magpapayat, so, nagpapayat ako.
"Makakadalawang linggong taping na kami, bigla sinabi sa ‘kin na kailangan ko daw mag-gain ng weight kasi magsu-shooting daw kami ni Ma’am Sharon Cuneta ng Unexpectedly Yours.
"Pinaglalaruan nila ang katawan ko! Taba-payat-taba-payat, e, hindi naman na ako bata!"
Robin was asked if he doesn't want to do teleseryes anymore.
"Hindi naman sa ayaw, kasi, alam naman ni Ma’am Malou na kung mag-aaction na ‘ko sa pelikula, hindi ko na kaya yung style ng teleserye, lalo na yung halos araw na araw na taping. Sa totoo lang mahirap na talaga yung teleserye kasi pambata lang yun, e."
Robin Padilla is currently one of the judges in Pilipinas Got Talent Season 6.
His new teleserye, Sana Dalawa Ang Puso with Jodi and Richard premiered last January 29, Monday.
It replaced the afternoon hit Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin and airs before It's Showtime.
