To celebrate Vilma Santos’ golden showbiz anniversary that year, Vice Ganda suggested possible titles for the veteran actress’ next movie in an episode of Gandang Gabi Vice.
Vilma opened the conversation talking about her GGV habit. Back then, she would catch every episode on Sunday night to make her feel good during their flag ceremony the next day. “Ito ‘yung last show na pinapanood ko bago matulog. Ang kulit talaga ni Vice!”
Vilma has been in the industry for 50 years. But the showbiz icon doesn’t take all the credit, thanking her supporters for helping her thrive in showbiz.
“Wholeheartedly, maraming, maraming salamat sa publiko at Vilamnians. Hindi ka tatagal kung hindi ka rin dinala ng publiko mo. At the end of the day, ‘yung public ang foundation ng itatagal mo sa industriya,” she said,
Over the past five decades, Vilma has done almost 200 movies in total, some of which mentions her real name in the title: “Edgar Loves Vilma,” “Hatinggabi na Vilma,” “Takbo, Vilma, Dali,” “Vilma, My Darling.”
“Bihira ‘yun na ang pangalan ng lead sa totoong buhay, kasama sa title ng pelikula. Nag-iisa ka talaga! Ikaw ang naunang pauso queen!” said Vice.
From there, Vice suggested other movie titles with Vilma’s name. With matching edited movie posters flashed on the LED screen, he mentioned funny titles like “Dapa, Vilma, Dapa,” “Kembot, Vilma Dali,” “Ligo na Vilma, Lapit na Me,” “Huwag Kang Tatawid, Vilma Nakamamatay.”
