MANILA – The mother of Enrique Gil hopes the actor will consider going to business school in the future.

Bambi Gil made the statement on Friday’s episode of the ABS-CBN morning show “Kris TV,” where she appeared as a guest with her son as well as comedienne Pokwang and actress Carmina Villaroel.

For now, Mrs. Gil said she is happy with Enrique’s showbiz career.

The 22-year-old actor is currently one of the leading men of the top-rating ABS-CBN soap “Mirabella” topbilled by Julia Barretto.

“[I want him] To go to business school, even just for a short course,” Mrs. Gil said.

Enrique replied, saying, “Ang hirap din kasi ‘pag super busy.”

His mother quickly added: “Not now, but eventually.”

When asked what she wants Enrique to improve on as an actor, Mrs. Gil said she is not in a position to coach her son because she has no background in showbiz.

“When it comes to acting, I’m not an authority and I don’t know anything about that. Obviously, I cannot coach him or tell him to do something there because I wouldn’t know,” she explained.

“I guess [I want him to] just be grounded,” she added.
