Ai-Ai delas Alas is now a mother figure for Jiro Manio both on-cam and off-cam.
They will work with each other again in a movie that will be released in time for Mother‘s Day 2016.
Ai-Ai revealed that this will mark Jiro's movie comeback after undergoing treatment at a wellness facility.
"Kakaibang movie tungkol sa ina at matutuwa kayo kasi hindi siya ordinary Mother's Day presentation," said Ai-Ai during her contract signing with Regal Entertainment on October 17.
Jiro will be cast as her son in this upcoming drama-comedy film.
"Comeback movie ito ni Jiro.
"Salamat sa lahat ng prayers ng mga tagasuporta ni Jiro.
"Konti na lang at lalabas na siya," said the comedienne.
The Kapuso actress disclosed that the actor is about to exit the wellness facility where he is undergoing treatment.
"Nakaayos na ang kuwarto niya at sa akin siya titira.
"Saka gusto rin niya kasi malayo sa lahat ng mga tukso na nangyari sa kanya.
"Saka kailangan ko rin siyang bantayan."
Jiro wants to work again after declaring in the past that he does not want to return to showbiz.
"Gusto na niya magbagong buhay at talagang pinakiusapan ko naman siya na umayos na siya para maka-move on na siya sa buhay niya.
"Bumabalik na yung interes niya [na umarte]."
Ai-Ai said that Jiro initially wanted to work in Japan but she discouraged him since he does not know how to speak the Japanese language.
"Practicality-wise, hindi ka naman puwede magtrabaho sa Japan kasi hindi ka marunong mag Nihonggo.
"Sabi ko, ganito na lang ang plano natin: mag-aartista ka at mag-iipon ka para sa future mo."
While Ai-Ai performed in Tokyo recently for an event, she asked a friend to visit the house of Jiro's father but the residence was locked.
