After wrapping up for their hit teleserye, Princess and I, which will air its finale episode tonight, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla will start shooting for their launching movie as a love team. Not much detail has been revealed about the film except that it is tentatively titled Dyosa, and expected to be a romantic comedy.
The two young stars say that they both prefer their launching movie to be a light one. “Feeling ko magandang simulan ang launching movie namin sa hindi muna masyadong mabigat, for age namin; about growing up para hindi mamadali,” said Kathryn.
“Ayoko nung iyakan, lungkot, bigat sa puso. Ayokong makaramdam nun, ka-bad trip. Gusto kong maramdaman masaya lang ako parati. Masaya ‘yung rom-com kasi kinikilig ka na, masaya ka pa. Saan ka pa, ‘di ba?,” explained Daniel.
Aside from Princess and I, Kathryn and Daniel worked together as a love team in recent Star Cinema films 24/7 in Love and Sisterakas. However, their exposure in these movies were limited because they were only secondary leads.
Both young stars are excited and pressured about their upcoming movie project. They are hoping that fans will support their launching movie as they did their previous films. Sisterakas is currently the highest grossing Filipino film of all time and the love team is hoping that their launching movie gets even just a fraction of the success of the MMFF 2012 entry. Dyosa is set for a March 13, 2013 playdate.
Meanwhile, Kathryn and Daniel have mixed emotions regarding the ending of Princess and I. According to the two, they learned a lot from the show and the people they worked with whom they will miss after the series ends. They are also very grateful to the public who supported the show and made it a hit. The series was originally set to end in October 2012, but due to high ratings and insistent public demand, it was extended for three months.
Tonight, it will be finally revealed who Princess Areeyah (Kathryn Bernardo) will choose between Gino (Daniel Padilla) and Jao (Enrique Gil) and what will happen to the rest of the Kingdom of Yangdon as Princess and I airs its last episode.
