Fans of ABS-CBN stars Maja Salvador and Paulo Avelino are in for a treat.
During the actress’s concert dubbed as Only Maja at the Music Museum, the pair dished out details about their upcoming project, the indie film titled I’m Drunk, I Love You.
While on stage, Paulo revealed, “Ang daming pinagdaanan nitong project na ito.”
Though the issues weren’t clear, he continued that “dapat by this time, nasa sinehan na kami.
“Pero siyempre, itinatadhana talaga na si Maja ang maging …Carson [lead character].”
Aside from performing the film’s theme song “Huling Gabi” for the first time, Maja and Paulo treated guests to an exclusive two-minute teaser video.
Co-written and directed by JP Habac, the film shows the story of two college best friends who went on one last road trip where they settle how they really feel for each other.
As the Kapamilya actor said, “istorya ito ng magkaibigan, dalawang matalik na magkaibigan, na for seven years silang magkaibigan, lumalabas, siyempre di mo mapipigilan na may isang mai-in love.”
Paulo's character is named Dio and he has been Carson's best friend for the pastseven years.
Maja, on the other hand, described the film as “very millennial.
“Parang ikukwento dun parang ilang araw lang yung pangyayari, dun sa storya pero sa isang linggo o apat na araw na yun, malalaman niyo yung kwento ng puso ni Carson.
She added, “kwento nga ng lahat ng babae, na minsan nabigo sila sa kanilang pag-ibig.
“Yung ga-graduate na pero di pa din siya nakaka-graduate dun sa puso ng minamahal niya, parang ganon.
On the “kilig moments,” the actress does not want to disclose too much.
Instead, she assured that, “maski ako kahit nagawa ko na yung pelikula, excited akong mapanood. Kasi gusto kong mapanood yung kwento nung Carson, noong character ko.
“Parang 7 years nagtiis ng ganon sa pagibig, may ganon pa ba?”
Has she experienced the same fate like her character in the film?
Maja told PEP and other reporters after her concert, “Oo, pero hindi ko kinimkim. Inaccept ko agad.”
She added, “Siguro isang beses sa buhay talaga ng mga babae, mapagdadaanan yun, yung meron kang minamahal pero di ka kayang mahalin, di ka kayang suklian, or hindi kayang ibalik yung pagmamahal na kaya mong ibigay. Ang sakit.”
Though the film is still currently in production, Paulo and Maja are expecting their project to hit the big screens early next year.
Maja hoped, “First quarter next year pinagpe-pray ko na sana first quarter next year kasi parang ang tagal na din namin hindi nagsama ni Paulo.”
Her leading man promised, “First quarter marami kaming ihahanda para maging mas exciting tong pelikula na to.”
It can be remembered that they first starred in Bridges of Love in 2015 along with Jericho Rosales.
In the said ABS-CBN teleserye, Maja played Mia Sandoval while Paulo played Carlos, the younger brother of Gael (Jericho).
