"Sana 'yung career path ni Judai ay makuha niya. Kasi si Judai, ang ganda ng career niya even noong nag-asawa siya. Sana ay ganoon," Mommy Min said in an interview with ABS-CBN News.
Bernardo rose to fame after portraying the role of Mara in the remake of the ABS-CBN drama "Mara Clara." The said role was originally played by Santos.
Min said that just like Santos, her daughter should always give her best in every project.
"Lagi kong sinasabi sa kanya na lahat ng opportunities, give your best. Kaya lahat ng project niya ay pinag-iigihan naman niya," she said.
Bernardo starred in the top-rating primetime soap "Princess and I," which ended last month.
In a previous interview, Min said she has no problems with her daughter's "relationship" with teen actor Daniel Padilla, one of her leading men in "Princess and I."
Padilla and Bernardo recently admitted that they are already in the "MU" or "mutual understanding" stage.
"Sa akin naman, napakaano naman kung wala munang ligaw, okay lang pero wag lang magmadali sana," Min said.
Like Min, Bernardo's father Teddy also appreciates his daughter's friendship with Padilla.
But he asked the actor to not go beyond that -- at least for now.
"Dapat. Naaappreciate ko ang friendship at closeness nila, pero hanggang doon na lang muna," he said.
Last Wednesday, Star Cinema's "Must Be...Love" starring Padilla and Bernardo hit theaters nationwide.
After their movie, the two stars are set to do another TV series.
