MANILA - Comedian Vhong Navarro admitted that he had a hard time shooting his comeback movie project, "Da Possessed" under Star Cinema, following his mauling incident early this year.
The "It's Showtime" host said he was traumatized after being attacked by a group of men led by businessman Cedric Lee.
Lee and his camp claimed that Navarro raped their friend, model Deniece Cornejo, an accusation which the comedian denied.
"Kasi shinooting namin ito last year pa at nag-reshoot kami. Medyo nahirapan akong ibigay kung ano 'yung gusto niya. Hindi ko alam kung ano po ang nawala sa akin. Feeling ko po 'yung kumpiyansa at nagkaroon po ako ng trauma," Navarro said.
"Ang gusto ko lang po talaga at laging iniisip, kahit anong dumating na pagsubok sa buhay ko ang pinakaimportante sa akin ay magpasaya ng tao," he added.
Joining Navarro in "Da Possessed" are Solenn Heussaff, Joey Marquez, Empoy, John "Sweet" Lapuz and Smokey Manoloto.
Directed by Joyce Bernal, the film will premiere on April 19.
