MANILA – After more than two decades since their first team up, the Philippines’ megastar Sharon Cuneta and pop culture icon Robin Padilla are back together to rekindle their on-screen love affair via the romance comedy “Unexpectedly Yours”.
Padilla said nothing has changed since the first time they worked together in the 1991 hit movie “Maging Sino Ka Man”.
“Nothing has changed – I am still a fan and she, my idol. While filming our scenes, I still am left speechless,” Padilla said.
“Maging Sino Ka Man” became a monumental success, spawning two more successful flicks “Di Na Natuto” in 1993 and “Pagdating ng Panahon” in 2001.
Sharon said their latest movie, “Unexpectedly Yours”, was a delight to make.
“The movie is fun because we have a different rapport. I call him my twin because we have many things in common. My happiest shooting experiences are with him,” she said.
“Unexpectedly Yours” has raked in over a hundred million pesos at the Philippine box office. It is showing via TFC@theMovies this week.
The movie also features the breakout loveteam of Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia.
Under the direction of blockbuster rom-com director Cathy Garcia – Molina, Cuneta plays Patty, a workaholic whose life changes after she crosses paths with her high school classmate, Cocoy (played by Padilla).
