MANILA -- Actor Marlo Mortel said he is happy for his first leading lady Janella Salvador, who is teaming up with Elmo Magalona in the upcoming series "Born For You" which will air early next year.
"Okay naman, masaya naman ako para sa kanya siyempre," Mortel told DZMM's Mismo host Jobert Sucaldito on Monday.
Asked if he was hurt, Mortel replied: "Ano ang magagawa natin, hindi ba? Management decision 'yon, di ba? Gumagawa ako ng iba (na projects) and happy ako para sa kanya. May project siya at nagle-level up talaga siya as a leading woman."
Despite this, Mortel and Salvador can be seen in the horror film "Haunted Mansion," which also stars Jerome Ponce.
"Haunted Mansion" is one of the entries to this year's Metro Manila Film Festival.
