MANILA, Philippines -- Amid speculations that Cavite Rep. Lani Mercado will run for Senate in 2013 elections, her husband, Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr., said there is no such plans.

"No, she's not running for senator," Revilla stressed in an interview during the first day of shooting for his film "Si Agimat, Si Enteng Kabisote at Ako," with Vic Sotto and Judy Ann Santos.

Revilla, however, refused to comment when asked if he will be running for vice president in 2016.

"Hantayin natin 'yung tamang panahon, masyadong maaga pa para pag-usapan 'yan," Revilla said.

The senator said right now, he's focused on finishing the movie, which is an official entry to this year's Metro Manila Film Festival.

"Ang importante itong pelikula na pinagsasamahan namin ni Vic and Judai at mga kasama namin, all-star cast , pinaghahandaan namin at regalo namin sa inyo ngayong Pasko," he said.
