MANILA, Philippines - Senator-actor Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr. sees nothing wrong if his film "Panday 2" competes against Vic Sotto's "Enteng ng Ina Mo" at this year's Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).

In an interview, Revilla stressed there's only friendly competition between him and Sotto.

"Sa amin friendly competition ito," said Revilla, adding that what is important now is that they will be able to help the film industry.

"Ang importante ay mabuhay natin ang industriya ng pelikulang Pilipino. Nakikita naman natin na bumabalik na ulit ang sigla ng local films. Sana po ay tuloy tuloy ang suporta niyo para gumawa pa tayo ng magandang pelikula," he said.

Revilla and Sotto worked together for 2010 MMFF entry "Si Agimat at si Enteng Kabisote."

He also hoped that this year's MMFF would earn more compared to last year's earnings.

"Dapat panoorin natin ang lahat ng entries sa Metro Manila Film Festival," Revilla added.

Revilla said he dedicates "Panday 2" to the late King of Action Fernando Poe Jr., who was the original Flavio or Panday.
