Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson, movie in January 2010
The phenomenal success of Tayong Dalawa has solidified Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson’s tandem as the hottest love team in showbiz today. Kim and Gerald are already preparing for their movie to be shown in January 2010 with a guest appearance on Maalaala Mo Kaya very soon. But even with all the projects coming their way, they insist that they are not out to compete with the other prime artists of Star Magic. “Naku, nakakahiya, hindi naman. Lahat naman kami importante kay Mr. M. (Johnny Manahan) Lahat kami gini-groom niya ng pantay-pantay. Nagpapasalamat lang ako sa lahat ng patuloy sumusuporta sa akin. At sana by 2010 suportahan nila yung movie namin ni Gerald,” Kim said in an interview with ABS-CBN.com.
Gerald, on the other hand, was very happy that they have both been given opportunities to take their showbiz careers to the next level. “It’s overwhelming. Sobrang nakakainspire dahil siyempre kung ganon ang tiwala nila sa ’yo dapat gawin mo talaga lahat para abutin yung expectations nila. I’m just very happy dahil mas malalim na yung tiwala nila sa amin ni Kim.”
Since their film is going to be a romantic-comedy, there are already speculations as to whether they can surpass the box office team-up of John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo in You Change My Life. When asked if they are ready to take on that challenge, the young actor explained that he and Kim would rather focus on putting their best foot forward than think of such rivalry issues. “Salamat sa pressure ha,” Gerald laughed. “Hindi, sa amin naman ni Kim gusto lang namin gawin talaga yung lahat. Pag-aaralan namin ito. Ibibigay namin yung 100% namin. Wala namang rivalry with John Lloyd [or Sarah]. Basta may trabaho kami ni Kim, masaya na kami.”
Gerald further shared that their roles would be more mature than the ones they portrayed in the movie I’ve Fallen For You two years ago. But it still remains to be seen whether there would be a big screen follow-up of their love scene in Tayong Dalawa. “Hindi ko pa alam. Kung gagawa man kami ng love scene alangan namang tanggihan ko, siyempre gumawa na kami ng love scene sa soap. Pero kung gagawa man kami ulit, siyempre dapat mas maganda sa movie.”
Kim went on to assure their fans, “Sa ngayon hindi pa namin pwedeng idetalye kung ano yung roles namin ni Gerald. Basta ito ang maipapangako namin sa mga Kimerald, wala kaming love triangle kaya solong-solo naming dalawa ito. Sobrang nakakakilig, nakakatawa, at maiiyak ka sa storya. Lahat mararamdaman mo dito sa movie. Tapos nagworkshop kami kahapon, sobrang ganda, kaya excited na talaga kaming maihandog sa inyo ito.”
