“Ang Panday” star Coco Martin downplayed the possibility of his film competing with the movies of major blockbuster stars Vic Sotto and Vice Ganda in the upcoming “Metro Manila Film Fest 2017” (MMFF).
In an interview with PEP, the actor admitted having mixed feelings with “Ang Panday” competing with the films of Vice and Vic for “MMFF 2017”. He stated, “Honestly, excited ako. Pero noong binubuo na itong pelikula, ninenerbiyos ako. Kasi si Vice ‘yan, mag-best friend kami, tapos ilang pelikula kaming magkasama.”
Coco also revealed that while he was making “Ang Panday”, he never though of the competition with other film entries.He said, “Sabi ko sa sarili ko, gagawin ko siyang inspirasyon. Kailangan kong gandahan ang pelikula ko. Kapag hindi maganda ang pelikula ko, definitely, hindi gaanong tatangkilikin.”
“Wala akong ibang panlaban, e. Ang panlaban ko lang, basta maganda ang pelikula ko. Honestly, kapag sinabing blockbuster ‘yan, si Vice Ganda ‘yan at saka si Bossing [Vic],” he added.
