LAST Saturday, October 30, Filipinos from Dubai excited to catch the film Exes Baggage which stars Angelica Panganiban and Carlo Aquino. Their movie day was made special after The Filipino Channel (TFC) and the Black Sheep organized a movie premiere with Panganiban and Aquino at the Reel Cinema in Dubai Mall.
Before the screening started, some fans and members of the press asked Panganiban and Aquino a few questions which they obligingly answered. Relating to the title of their film “Exes Baggage”, one fan asked them to give an advice for those overseas Filipinos who carry with them “excess baggage” which could either refer to their personal relationships or literal baggage at the airport.
“Bitawan nila, kasi mahal, e, ang mahal ng bayad!” Panganiban first candidly replied. On a serious note, she added: “Puwede kayo maging devoted sa work, okay ‘yan. Pero sa pain, ‘wag kayo maging devoted. Iwan mo. Puwede mo naman i-embrace for a time para matuto ka. Tapos no’n, let go.”
On the other hand, Aquino kept it short: “Let go and move on.”
The day was made even more memorable as the fans were given a photo opportunity with Panganiban and Aquino that could be seen on TFC Middle East official Facebook page.
CarGel’s film “Exes Baggage” is the debut film of ABS-CBN Film’s newest production brand, Black Sheep, which caters to the new generation of audiences.
