This generation’s hottest love team, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, are both honored and thankful with the newest blessing given to their love team–the highly anticipated romantic movie from Star Cinema, “Must Be…Love,” which will hit cinemas nationwide on March 13 (Wednesday).
Coming from the phenomenal success of the country’s no.1 teen primetime teleserye “Princess and I” and the overwhelming support of the public to their love team’s first two movies namely, “24/7” and “Sisterakas,” Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla are set to win moviegoers’ hearts via their launching movie directed by one of the “Princess and I” directors Dado Lumibao.
“Masayang-masaya ‘yung feeling na may pelikula na kami ni DJ (Daniel Padilla’ nickname) kasi isang honor po talaga na mabigyang kami ng chance na makagawa ng isang pelikula right after our teleserye,” said Kathryn Bernardo. “Excited kami ni DJ sa project na ‘to pero pareho rin kaming kinakabahan kasi ibang-iba nga talaga ‘yung movie compared sa mga ginawa namin sa ‘Princess and I.”
Despite the pressure, Daniel Padilla admitted that Kathryn is a big factor that made him more driven to to do his best in the unique romantic movie, where they play as childhood best friends Patchot (Kathryn) and Ivan (Daniel). He said, “Happy ako kasi parang araw-araw kaming magkasama. At kung dati ay komportable kami sa isa’t isa, ngayon talagang super close na kami. Iba ‘yung bonding namin ni Kathryn. Sa sobrang saya, parang hindi na trabaho ‘yung ginagawa namin.”
When asked about their ‘secret to success,’ Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla only had a simple reply–they’re just keeping it real and true.
“Siguro naging interesting sa viewers ‘yung pagiging love team namin ni DJ kahit very opposite kami pagdating sa pananamit, pananalita, pagkilos, and personality,” said Kathryn Bernardo. “Yung ibang teenagers like us, nakikita nila ‘yung mga sarili nila sa amin. At kami, ‘yung mga ginagawa namin, pang-age lang talaga namin.”
With the solid support of Filipino viewers across the globe, both Kathryn and Daniel ensured that their launching movie “Must Be…Love” will be different from their past projects. “Sobrang layo nung characters namin ni Kathryn dito compared sa ‘Princess and I.’ Yung look ko palang dito iba na, ‘yung look din ni Kathryn iba talaga,” shared Daniel Padilla.
