MANILA -- Actor Paulo Avelino said he never thought that he will get another television project while he is still part of the primetime series "Honesto."

"I mean, I never really expected it," Avelino told reporters in an interview during the press conference for the upcoming ABS-CBN soap "Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon," which also stars Bea Alonzo and Albert Martinez.

Asked for more details about the show's airing date, Avelino said: "As of now, hindi pa namin alam kung kailan ieere ang soap na ito at inaayos pa ang sched. I think hindi naman po magsasabay talaga [sa 'Honesto']."

Meanwhile, Avelino addressed the issue that he is one of the "favorites" of the ABS-CBN management because of his continuous showbiz projects.

"Hindi naman siguro. I think, kumbaga, kung ano naman ang estado ko ngayon ay pinagtrabahuan ko din naman 'yon at pinaghirapan ko naman 'yon," he explained.

"May dahilan naman ako kung bakit ako pursigido magtrabaho. Mahal ko ang ginagawa ko at kung mahal ko at nage-enjoy ako, kahit siguro araw-araw magtrabaho eh parang 'di siya trabaho. Parang nagflo-flow lang siya," he added.

In "Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon," Avelino will play one of the love interests of Alonzo's three characters.

"Empleyado ako ni Ms. Bea Alonzo at eventually ay mahuhulog ako sa isa sa character niya dito," he said.
