MANILA, Philippines - Prince of Comedy Vic Sotto shared his excitement over his upcoming movie with Comedy Concert Queen Ai-Ai delas Alas.

Speaking to ABS-CBN News, Sotto said: "Gusto ko na ngang mag-shooting eh, pero medyo maaga pa."

The Box Office King also said he is looking forward to working with another comedy icon in a very big and promising project of ABS-CBN's movie outfit Star Cinema and M-ZET Productions.

"Oras na maging official entry ang aming konsepto, ang aming proyekto, we'll start working on it. Pre-production muna. This is a big movie and we have to come up with something really big," he said.

The first on-screen partnership of Sotto and delas Alas will be a fantasy-romance film, the TV host-actor revealed.

Prior to this collaboration, Sotto starred in Star Cinema's film "Pak! Pak! My Dr. Kwak" with actress Bea Alonzo.

On divorce and RH bill

Meantime, Sotto divulged his stand on two controversial measures being tackled in the House of Representatives -- the Divorce bill and the Reproductive Health (RH) bill.

On the RH bill, he said: "I'm not for legalizing abortion pero sinasabi naman nila na walang ile-legalize na abortion. 'Yun lang naman ang main concern ko 'dun.

"Hangga't maaari, 'wag gawing batas kung ano 'yung dapat gawin ng mga tao. Parang nawawalan tayo ng freedom kung anong gusto nating pamamaraan sa buhay. Kung gusto natin ng maraming anak ay hindi dapat kontrahin ng batas."

Sotto, who had failed relationships in the past with actresses Coney Reyes, Dina Bonnevie and TV host Pia Guanio, revealed his stand on divorce.

"Medyo I'm in the middle but I'm not really for it. Depende, depende sa sitwasyon ng couple kasi ganun na lang rin naman eh. Mayroon na rin namang annulment, so we go through a lot ng mahabang proseso," he said.

"Siguro mas madali siguro ang proseso ng divorce, but ewan ko kung masa-friendly. That's what I'm worried about. Baka ang mga makikinabang lang naman nito ay mga sosyal. Kasi gastos sa abogado, gastos sa ganito. I don't know. It's up for debates. Makinig tayo sa mga debate bago tayo magbigay ng mga opinyon," he ended. - Report from Mario Dumaual, ABS-CBN News
