"Maalaala Mo Kaya" once again had viewers in tears with the true-to-life story of Karla and Gio, whose gave love a second chance after ending their seven-year relationship over infidelity
MANILA – Elmo Magalona revealed that he and Janella Salvador will be starring in an episode of “Maalaala Mo Kaya” ahead of their movie “My Fairy Tail Love Story,” which opens in cinemas in time for Valentine’s Day.
“We don’t know kung pwede na sabihin pero we are going shoot an episode of 'MMK' soon. It’s going to be our first 'MMK' together. It’s exciting din kasi 'MMK' is a different show. I am excited to do it with Jea,” he told ABS-CBN News' Gretchen Fullido.
Magalona, however, provided no other details as to the story of their "MMK" episode.
Instead, Magalona opted to talk more about the upcoming movie.
“Hopefully talaga a lot of people watch it. It’s not just romantic. It’s family-oriented din. I play the role of Noah, the best friend of Janella. Ako 'yung pinagkatiwalaan ng magulang niya na mag-alaga sa kanya kasi we have been friends since bata pa,” he said.
Explaining that “My Fairy Tail Love Story” is not the typical romantic-comedy film, Magalona said: “It’s mostly rom-com na unexpectedly different kasi may songs din na lumabas. Pero hindi siya super musical but there are also songs in the movie.”
Magalona said he is looking forward for their fans to see the unique dynamics of their characters.
And since their movie is Regal Films’ Valentine offering, Magalona said it looks like he and Salvador will be together to celebrate the special occasion.
“Well, kung February 14 talaga, mukhang sa cinemas ko na dadalahin si Jea,” he said. “We shot mostly in Anilao. I have to give it to our directors, super ganda ng shots nila. I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”
