Kakai Bautista Launched To Stardom In 'Harry And Patty' Opposite Rumored Ex-Boyfriend Ahron Villena

COMEDIAN KAKAI BAUTISTA gets the biggest break in her career playing a lead title role in the romantic-comedy, “Harry and Patty”, where he shares topbillling with the hunky Ahron Villena. Tagged as the Dental Diva, this is really proving to be a good year for her as she just staged her 15th anniversary concert, “The Dental Diva”, at Music Museum a couple of months ago, and she has finished another movie where she also plays the lead role of a superhero, “Wonder Bra”.

She and Ahron were previously linked romantically but Ahron denied it vehemently and they had a sad exhange of words. Luckily, they are able to resolve their feud just before the shooting of their film started. The film is directed by Julius Alfonso of “Deadma Walking” and he said he talked first to his two stars before the cameras began to grind.

“I talked to them individually to see kung okay na ba talaga sila,” says Direk Julius. “Kasi mahirap nang mag-shoot kami kung may conflict pa sila. And they assured me na wala na silang tampuhan. At kita naman sa scenes nila together na they have a good working relationship, maganda ang rapport nila. May natural chemistry sila and they offer a different kind of romantic comedy. Kakai is perfect as Patty while Ahron has this mysterious charisma na bagay sa role niya as Harry. They’re supported by Mark Neumann, Carmi Martin, Heaven Peralejo, Bodgie Pascua, Soliman Cruz, Donna of ‘Showtime’ at merong special role si Arci Munoz.”

How will Kakai describe her relationship now with Ahron? “We remain good friends,” she says. “Talagang inalagaan niya ako sa set the whole time na nagsu-shooting kami. Ganoon naman talaga ang magkaibigan. Kung minsan, parang aso’t pusa, nagkakaroon ng pikunan. But as of now, we’re okay. We consider this as a bagong chapter sa pagiging magkaibigan namin and we’re happy na nakagawa kami ng isang masayang movie together. We guarantee the viewers that we will give them a good time in the movies.”

What’s the story all about? “Simple lang. Tungkol sa magkaibigan, best friends, na nagkahiwalay and then nagkatagpo uli, then na-in love. Parang “two old friends meet again, wearing older faces, talk about the places they’ve been”. Naku, kumanta pa raw ako ng ‘Maybe This Time’. Ha ha ha!”
