The scheduled appearances of “Hello, Love, Goodbye” stars Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards in Hong Kong, where the OFW drama was filmed for a month, has been cancelled due to security reasons, according to producer Star Cinema.

Bernardo and Richards, along with director Cathy Garcia-Molina, were originally to return to Hong Kong in time for special screenings of the blockbuster there.

The screenings on August 18 and 25, however, will continue as scheduled, Star Cinema told ABS-CBN News’ MJ Felipe.

The cancelled visit of the stars of “Hello, Love, Goodbye” came amid continued protests in Hong Kong, which have paralyzed airport operations, as of writing.

“Hello, Love, Goodbye,” which marks the first team-up of Bernardo and Richards, recently crossed the P500-million mark in domestic earnings.

With international screenings in full swing — the lead stars were just in Dubai for the premiere there — “Hello, Love, Goodbye” is poised for a leap in box-office tally that’s expected to rival Bernardo’s previous record-breaker, “The Hows of Us.”
