MANILA – It has been months since “Born For You” ended but it looks like fans of Elmo Magalona and Janella Salvador would have to wait a little longer before they see their favorite pair in a television series again.

This after the two admitted that they will no longer be part of the upcoming show “Kung Kailangan Mo Ako,” where they were supposed to work with Joshua Garcia.

“Since nung last draft nung show, maraming nabago. Ang nangyari nagbago ng cast. Sabi kasi hindi na kami magiging part nun,” Magalona told entertainment site Push.

“Or 'yung roles namin supposedly ibang iba na from when it started. I don’t think it would benefit the show or even kami kung itutuloy pa namin,” Salvador added.

Dreamscape unveiled the cast of “Kung Kailangan Mo Ako” last March.

Aside from the three, the show is also supposed to star John Estrada, Eula Valdez, Mylene Dizon, Mccoy de Leon, Elisse Joson, Nash Aguas and Alexa Ilacad.

While Dreamscape opted not to disclose anything specific about the storyline at the time, veteran filmmaker Manny Palo, the main director of the series, said it is a family drama.

“Pero siyempre lahat naman ng teleserye laging may love story 'yan. At the core of any teleserye is the love story, 'di ba? Pero siyempre, mas magiging exciting ang drama kapag involved 'yong drama ng pamilya," Palo told ABS-CBN News in an exclusive interview.

Although Magalona and Salvador will no longer be part of this show, the two can be seen in the upcoming Star Cinema film “Bloody Crayons,” which is their first big screen project together.
