In a video clip posted in her Instagram page, Gil delivered her iconic line “You’re nothing but a second-rate, trying hard copycat!” Gil then tried to throw water at Araullo, but failed.

"Citizen Jake" is said to be the comeback movie of De Leon, whose previous works include the critically acclaimed films "Kisapmata," "Batch '81" and "Sister Stella L."

It was De Leon himself who approached Araullo, one of the hosts of "Umagang Kay Ganda," for the project.
