Sarah Geronimo nervous about teamup with Gerald
Sarah Geronimo is praying that Kimerald fans will accept her as another screen partner of Gerald Anderson. Sarah is working on a yet untitled movie under Star Cinema. Yes, she is a bit nervous, but she is hoping fans of Gerald and Kim Chiu will support her tandem with Gerald. “May kaunting kaba. Pero pinagdarasal ko po na sana matanggap ng supporters nila na ito ay trabaho lang,” she said.
Gerald and Sarah team up for the first time in this movie. And some sectors are wary Kimerald fans might not approve of the tandem. But Gerald is confident they will support his new partnership with Sarah. “I am thankful to the Kimeralds for their continued support. Pumupunta sa taping ko, pumupunta sila sa taping ni Kim. Nakikita ko ang suporta nila kahit hindi kami magkasama.”
Gerald and Kim have had a very successful movie pairing. Their movies Sana Maulit Muli, My Girl, Tayong Dalawa, Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo and Till My Heartaches End were big box-office hits. Sarah’s movie with John Lloyd Cruz, A Very Special Love and You Changed My Life were also box-office blockbusters.
Now, Sarah and Gerald are reportedly pressured with the high expectations leveled on their tandem. “All of us are nervous. Coming from two successful movies with John Lloyd, di maiwasan yong comparison. But as they say, we won’t enjoy this if we think of the pressure,” explained Sarah.
Sarah also denied there is discomfort on the set with her other leading man in the movie, Matteo Guidicelli. “We first had bonding sessions with direk Mae Cruz. The three of us had a heart-to-heart talk. Walang ilangan. They’re both gentleman,” said Sarah.
Gerald tries not to compare Sarah to Kim. “Magkaiba sila ni Kim. They are very good with what they do. I am very blessed dahil si Kim nakasama ko, and now it’s Sarah. She’s very nice. Tahimik lang din at very professional.”
He also said that being pressured is part of the territory. “Kahit anong proyekto may pressure. Pero yon nga ang challenge sa amin. To try to give the very best in us,” Gerald said.
Gerald who was earlier rumored to be in a special friendship with Bea Alonzo was in good spirits when asked about Zanjoe Marudo, the rumored new love of Bea. “Everything is normal. Happy sila. Kami, we decided to be friends first.”
