Sen. Bong Revilla Hopes 2012 Will Bring A Fresh New Start For His Beleaguered Family

SEN. BONG REVILLA says it will not be such a merry Christmas for their family after the tragedy of Ramgen’s controversial passing. “But I still wish maging masaya ang Pasko for our dad,” he says. “At his age, alam kong mahirap for him ang pinagdaraanan ng family namin. We’re hoping that 2012 will give us a fresh new start. As for me, ang wish ko is maging topgrosser sana ang entry naming ‘Panday 2’ dahil we made sure it’s worthseeing with its P80 million plus budget.”

What can he say about Kris Aquino’s prediction that number one will be the Ai Ai-Vic movie and number 2 is her own entry? “No comment na lang ako diyan. Basta I pray na kumita na lang lahat ng movies sa festival dahil lahat kami, pinaghirapang gawin our respective entries.”

How come Lorna Tolentino is not billed in the poster of “Panday 2”? “It’s her choice. She requested na wag na lang siyang isama sa billing. Alice Dixson as the queen of the dragons and Lucy Torres as a diwata are billed. But LT plays one of the most challenging roles in the movie as the witch Buruka. Kaya lang, she has prosthetic makeup and is almost unrecognizable.”

Is it true he and son Jolo are going to the U.S. next month for treatment of their severe migraines? “Yes, grabe kasi kami kapag may migraine, naoospital kami sa sobrang sakit. It runs in our family, nakuha namin sa mama ko, even my sister Andeng has it. So we have to be extra careful, wag masyadong ma-stress. Pag sobrang pagod na sa work, slow down. We also have to watch what we eat.”
