ACTOR-turned-politician Senator Bong Revilla is excited for the release of his Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry "Si Agimat, si Enteng at Ako" with Vic Sotto and Judy Ann Santos.
Bong shared that they're done shooting the said movie and they are currently working on the special effects of the film. He said their aim is to surpass the earlier installments of the MMFF entry.
"I'm excited na makita yung buong movie. Pero sa trailer pa lang makikita na ninyo na napakasa-saya. Yung pelikula napakalaki niya and mas maganda ito sa unang pinagsamahan namin ni Vic," he said.
The "Indio" lead star said that he enjoyed working with Judy Ann on the project. He said that she's very professional and showed her on-screen brilliance in the movie.
"Ang sarap kasama. Walang kaere-ere. Kung sino yung Judy Ann na kakilala ko noon, ganun parin siya. Napaka galing na artista," he said.
In this year's competition, Bong said his target is the top grosser title and wouldn't mind if the Best Actor trophy will be given to other participants in the festival.
"Yun ang target namin, to be number one again. Hindi ko na iniisip yung mga awards," he said.
With back-to-back projects in the next two months, the movie will be released on Christmas day while "Indio" is set on a tv premier on January 14, Bong said time management is key to successful showbiz and political career.
"Mahirap talaga pero masaya naman pag nakikita mong napapaligaya mo yung mga manonood mo, yung mga fans mo. Tapos hindi mo rin napapabayaan yung trabaho sa Senado. Hindi tayo nagpapabaya," he said.
He is also closely monitoring son, Jolo Revilla's political career in the province of Cavite. The 24-year-old actor is running for vice-governor in the May 2013 elections.
"Jolo can stand for himself. Yun ang training ko sa kanila, na wag lang umasa sa amin at tumayo ka sa sarili mong mga paa and make sure you can handle it. Of course hindi ko rin naman siya puwedeng pabayaan. Kahit anong pagod ko, puyat ko, I need to get up and support my son," he added.
With a sure hit in this year's MMFF, an upcoming primetime project, continuous work in the Senate and happy family life, Bong said he's never tired in serving the public and revealed his "agimat."
"Ang agimat ko ay ang Panginoon kasi kung hindi dahil sa kanya wala ako dito ngayon. At siyempre yung pamilya ko," he ended.
