Bong Revilla Awed By The Strong Impact Of 'Indio' On Viewing Public

SEN. BONG REVILLA’s long awaited appearance last week in GMA-7’s hit epicserye, “Indio”, made the show rate even higher. “Before I appeared on the show, everywhere I go, people would tell me: kailan ka ba lalabas sa ‘Indio’, inaabangan ka na namin,” he says. “That’s when I realized na ang lakas talaga ng impact ng ‘Indio’ sa publiko, kaya hindi talaga ko nagsisising ginawa ko ito kahit napakahirap at napakamagastos niyang gawin. I’d really like to thank GMA-7 for giving me their trust to star in a project that’s definitely the most important and expensive production any local network has ventured into.”

He himself got Director Dondon Santos from ABS-CBN to direct “Indio” on GMA-7. “At ngayon, kitang-kitang hindi kami nagkamali ng desisyong kunin siya kasi he’s doing an excellent job at talagang maipagmamalaki namin ang show. He’s very good in storytelling. Talagang mahahatak ang attention mo in following the story of the boy who’s half-human and half-diwata kaya may superpowers siya. He uses these powers in the various fight scenes na action-packed ang pagkakagawa. At sa laki pa lang casting ng ‘Indio’, impressive na. The best Kapuso talents are in the series. Sa leading ladies ko lang, wala na kong itulak-kabigin sa ganda’t husay nina Jennylyn Mercado, Rhian Ramos and Maxene Magalona.”

This week, Maxene as Rosa, Indio’s first love, will die in the hands of Indio’s benefactor, Michael de Mesa as Juancho, whose daughter Jennylyn as Esperanza sees it but chooses to keep quiet about it. Bong as Indio wants to avenge the death of his beloved but Rhian as Diwata Magayon warns her that he’ll commit a mistake.

Jackielou Blanco as Victoria, the stepmom of Esperanza, tries to poison the mind of Juancho about Indio. Two diwatas, Solenn Heussaff as Lalahon and Ehra Madrigal as Lihangin interfere in a fight in Ilaya that annoys Indio. The diwatas explain to him he should return to where he comes from to learn the truth.
