Expect more confrontation scenes between Ina, Kapatid, Anak main characters Celyn Buenaventura and Margaux Marasigan.
This was promised by one of the show’s lead actresses, Kim Chiu (who is cast as Celyn), in an interview held recently.
More than one week ago, ABS-CBN’s primetime series scored 40 percent on TV ratings survey conducted by Kantar Media/TNS among Total Philippines (Urban & Rural) households.

According to Kim, their group did not expect the program’s episode called “Gabi ng Pagpapakilala” would be a hit among televiewers.
The 22-year-old actress recalled, “Hindi naman kami nag-e-expect pero lahat kami, pinagdadasal namin na parang, ‘Ito pang-40 ‘to.’
“May mga joke kaming ganun sa set. Pero never kaming nagsabi, ginawa lang namin nang mabilis ang trabaho.
“Biglang ganun na, marami na ang nagsasabi na pang-40 na.
“So, lahat kami sa set, sobrang saya.
“Iba ‘yong feeling kapag umabot ka na ganun. Ito lang ang first teleserye ko na umabot ng 40.”
Kim believes that viewers must have liked the showdown of gowns between her character Celyn and Maja Salvador’s character Margaux.

She reiterated, “Siguro [mataas ang rating] dahil sa mga damit namin, ‘yong mga gowns namin.
“Siguro sinasabi nila, ‘’Yong gown ni Kim, ‘yong gown ni Maja.’
“Siguro, inabangan nila and ‘yong mga [eksena na dapat] abangan.”
NO PERSONAL ISSUES. Meanwhile, there are those who think that the TV rating of Ina, Kapatid, Anak is high because of the current rift between lead actresses Kim and Maja.

However, Kim would like to think otherwise. “Kung sa akin lang, mamahalin ko na lang ‘yong trabaho ko and mamahalin din ako ng trabaho ko.
“At saka huwag na munang isipin ang personal na buhay.
“Ang mahalaga ‘yong nagpapasaya kami ng ibang tao.”
The actress then assured viewers that there would be more exciting scenes in Ina, Kapatid, Anak that they wouldn’t wanna miss.
“Marami pa!” said Kim.
“Magta-transition pa kami, tatanda pa kami, ga-graduate pa kami ng college sa U.P. [University of the Philippines].
“So, marami pa talagang mangyayari and may mga bagong characters na papasok.
“Abangan na lang nila kung ano kami sa pagtanda namin.”
When asked about confrontation scenes between her character and Maja’s character, Kim replied, “Nandoon pa rin.”
Then, she repeated, “Maraming-marami pa silang aabangan.
“Kami rin nae-excite at nagugulat sa mga nanagyayari sa script.
“Pero trabaho, ganun talaga.”
