The premiere night of BFF (Best Friends Forever) was
different from other movies since the organizers tapped two singers to serve as
front acts of the main event.
Last night, May 12, moviegoers inside Cinema 10 of SM Megamall were treated to song numbers from talent search contestants Bugoy Drilon and Laarni Lozada. The two products of Pinoy Dream Academy Season 2 performed their signature songs culled from their debut albums.
Shortly after their intermission numbers, the cast members of BFF were ushered in front of the jampacked venue. They greeted the crowd and asked them to support their film, which is now being screened in cinemas nationwide.
Leading the cast were Sharon and Ai-Ai as well as John Estrada, the man whom they would fight about in the film. Young stars Empress Schuck, AJ Perez, Enchong Dee, and DJ Durano also graced the event along with Miles Ocampo, Nash Aguas and Carl Camo who play the children of Sharon in the film. Portraying helpers of Sharon in the film were Chokoleit and Joy Viado, both of whom took time to attend the star-studded event.
Special guests that evening were the Megastar's husband Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan and her daughter KC Concepcion who was seated near her Lovers in Paris co-star Piolo Pascual.
Among those present during the premiere night were Mark Bautista and Priscilla Meirelles, the girlfriend of John Estrada. ABS-CBN executives Linggit Tan, Johnny Manahan, Cory Vidanes, and Charo Santos-Concio made it a point to attend the premiere night of BFF, which marks the return of Sharon to the big screen after her 2008 film Caregiver.
Now that Gabby Concepcion is on speaking terms with Sharon, a lot of people were expecting to see her ex-husband during the premiere night but they were sorely disappointed. However those who will watch the film will be in for a pleasant surprise.
