MANILA, Philippines – Kapamilya actress Kaila Estrada and her father John Estrada to star in the upcoming film ‘ Pilak’ according to Star Magic.
Kaila Estrada previously revealed that she is not prepared to collaborate with her parents, John Estrada and Janice de Belen, at this time.
“May ganung factor parang nahihiya ako. Parang sa ngayon ay hindi ko po siya nai-imagine. Siguro kasi nahihiya akong magkamali sa harap nila. I think that’s part of it” Kaila said.
“At saka siyempre, it’s a different environment, di ba? Magiging work environment ‘yon, so hindi ako sanay na kasama sila sa ganung environment. Pero someday sana ay maka-work ko sila,” she added. “But someday feeling ko magiging masaya naman.”
Meanwhile, in an interview with Bernadeth Sembrano, the actress opened up about how she and sister Moira manage growing up with separated parents and how they rebuilt their relationship with their father John Estrada.
“We got used to the set-up. As you’re getting older, mas lumalalim ‘yung comprehension mo sa mga bagay bagay. You start to understand that your parents aren’t perfect. They’re just humans. They make mistakes,” explained Kaila.
“It’s different for us children because you hold your parents in such high regard. So ang tendency, you should not expect a lot from them, though it affected us, parang collateral damage rin kami. I guess we have to take responsibility for our traumas. Saka okay naman kami,” she added.
The actress also shared that she is currently having a positive relationship with her father, even though she was initially reluctant to allow him back into her life.
For the upcoming movie the Estradas will be joined by Jackie Lou Blanco and Alma Concepcion, the ABS-CBN’s talent management arm said in a social media.
“Pilak” will be directed by Elaine “Alex” Crisostomo and will be released in cinemas in July 2024.
