Binibining Pilipinas Tourism 2013 Cindy Miranda denied that she’s the reason why celebrity couple Aljur Abrenica and Kylie Padilla split up.
In a press conference for her new film Nerisa, Miranda stated that she got shocked when she saw people linking her to Abrenica, her on-screen male lead. She added that the couple had already broken up even before they started shooting for the movie.
“Nagulat po ako eh. Narinig ko na yung isyu na yan before mag-umpisa yung ‘Nerisa.’ Na-timingan lang po siguro ‘yong interview ni Sir Robin Padilla so they thought na ako yung naging dahilan,” Miranda explained.
The star also admitted that Abrenica has told her about his split with his wife but hasn’t revealed any further details about what really happened.
“But kung malalaman po nila yung timeline, it was really before ‘Nerisa’ nangyari yan kasi na-kwento po sa akin ni Aljur pero di ko po talaga alam ‘yong detalye.”
Miranda hopes for the couple to reconcile and fix their marriage and repeated that she and Abrenica are just friends as they have a professional relationship with each other.
“Sana maayos po nila. Hindi po talaga totoo yung issue na ‘yon. We’re friends. Very professional po yung naging trabaho namin ni Aljur.”
Nerisa revolves around a mysterious lady at sea who was found by a man named Obet. Upon her arrival, strange incidents and misfortunes started happening around the island. She then gets blamed for things that go wrong.
Despite the incidents, she gets the attention of the villagers as she possesses beauty and mysteriousness. She then marries her savior Obet, who went missing after an incident at sea.
Miranda said that she hopes people would see her as an actress through this movie.
“From beauty queen, sana makita na nila ako dito sa Nerisa as an actress.”
Tickets to Nerisa are available via Vivamax, ktx.ph, iWantTFC, and TFC IPTV.
