MANILA – Onscreen couple Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza announced temporarily leaving GMA’s daily noontime show ‘Eat Bulaga!’ to shoot their upcoming film in Italy with acclaimed movie director Mike Tuviera.
“Ang bilis nga po ng panahon kasi wala pang one year na magkakasama tayo, araw–araw magkakasama tayo; tapos ngayon mawawala kami ni Alden,” Maine said during their despedida. “Babalik naman po kami, kasi gagawa lang naman po kaming pelikula.”
(Time passed so quickly as we haven’t been together for a year yet, we’re together every day; then now, you won’t see Alden and me [for a while]… We’ll return. We’ll just make a film.)
“Kasama po namin kayo sa paggawa ng pelikulang ito. Kaya salamat po sa lahat ng sumusuporta sa amin… Lahat po ito ay para sa inyo,” she added.
(We’re with all of you in the making of this movie. We thank everyone who supported us… All of this is for you.)
Although they will be missing their fans, Alden shared that their film is their way of giving thanks for all the support they have been receiving since they first starred in Eat Bulaga!’s ‘Kalyeserye’ segment.
“Espesyal ito para sa inyong lahat. Gagawin po namin lahat ng makakaya namin para mapaganda ang pelikulang ‘to,” he said. “Sana po patuloy n’yo kaming suportahan ni Maine sa lahat ng ginagawa namin.”
(This is special. [This is] for all of you. We’ll do everything we can to make this movie beautiful… We hope that you continue to support Maine and me in everything we do.)
“Nandito lang po kami para sa inyong lahat; anumang pagsubok, walang bibitiw,” he added.
(We’re just here for all of you; whatever challenge comes, we’ll hold on.)
