"Ang tagumpay niya ay tagumpay ko rin," declares Daniel Padilla who is proud of his girlfriend Kathryn Bernardo and the recent box-office success of her movie, Hello, Love, Goodbye.
During his interview with ABS-CBN at the Star Magic Games 2019 held at the SMART Araneta Coliseum earlier today, August 25, the Kapamilya actor says he is "very proud" of Kathryn in her new film.
"Kanina nga nagsimba kami para lang magpasalamat sa lahat ng mga blessings na natatamo niya at natatamo ko rin. Ang tagumpay niya ay tagumpay ko rin," Daniel triumphantly asserts.
Hello, Love, Goodbye, Kathryn's OFW-centric romance film with GMA-7 actor Alden Richards, has a reported worldwide box-office gross of PHP 838,514,653.70 as of August 23, 2019.
Meanwhile, the 2018 romance film The Hows of Us, which stars Kathryn and Daniel, still stands as the highest-grossing Filipino film of all time with a total gross of more than PHP900 million.
With these two achievements, Kathryn has the recognition of being the only actress to lead both of the top two highest-grossing Filipino films of all time.
Acknowledging this, Daniel says with pride, "O, panis, nobya ko iyan."
Daniel teases that there are projects lined up for him, but refuses to divulge details.
He says, "Soon, soon. Hindi pa tayo puwede mag-spill, e, pero soon.
"Alam niyo naman ako. Sa shadows ako gumagalaw. Sa mga anino."
Will Daniel consider working with an actress from GMA-7 as well?
He answers, "Depends kung sino, di ba? Pero iyon na nga sabi ni Kathryn, e.
"Hindi naman natin sinasara yung mga pinto natin sa mga ganung opportunidad."
