AlDub pa more!
Because they have been keeping a punishing schedule involving daily shoots for Destined To Be Yours (DTBY), their first soap starrer set to premiere two Mondays from now (Feb. 27), taking over the timeslot to be vacated by Dingdong Dantes’ action-adventure Robin Hood, Maine Mendoza and Alden Richards have been feeling under the weather these days. Between shoots in sometimes as far away as Quezon, they also have to show up on Eat, Bulaga! every now and then, limited to twice or thrice a week.
Directed by Irene Villamor, DTBY tells a love story quite different from the one in Imagine You & Me, the loveteam’s first solo starrer (after appearing with Vic Sotto and Ai-Ai de las Alas in My Bebe Love) that raked in millions at the tills. The all-star cast includes Boots Anson-Roa, Gardo Versoza, Tommy Abuel, Ronnie Henares, Ina Feleo, Sheena Halili, Dominic Roco, Juancho Trivino, RJ Padilla, Koreen Medina and Lotlot de Leon.
When Maine and Alden showed up for this interview before the presscon the other day, they had tarried a bit. Obviously, a few days rest would do them good. But still, they were game during the Q&A that kicked off on love and loving, the day being Valentine’s Day. It seemed that neither of them had any date that night.
