MANILA — Is Regine Velasquez finally returning to the big screen, with no less than her “anak-anakan” Sarah Geronimo as her co-star?
This was the question among fans of Velasquez on Monday, as a photo of her with Geronimo at what appears to be a film set circulated online.
The photo was shared on Twitter by filmmaker Jun Robles Lana, who is co-directing, with Perci Intalan, Geronimo’s previously announced movie project, “Unforgettable.”
“Look who’s filming with us today!” Lana captioned the photo, with hashtags indicating that it was taken on “Unforgettable’s” ninth shooting day.
Velasquez was not among the cast members of “Unforgettable” introduced in late May by producer Viva Films. At the time, joining Geronimo in a photo of the cast were Ara Mina, Kim Molina, Meg Imperial, Gina Pareño, and Yayo Aguila.
Dubbed “Asia’s Songbird,” Velasquez is a music icon but has also made a name as an actress, with lead roles in various TV series and films.
As a returning Kapamilya star, Velasquez is set to star in a sitcom with her husband, comedian ang songwriter Ogie Alcasid.
