As Michael on Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit, he has created an image of a reliable and caring father. But now, RK Bagatsing is taking a break from being a role model to star in the daring Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino (PPP) entry “Cuddle Weather”. The movie is set to run from September 13 to September 19. Until then, the actor decided to answer questions from fans!
“Minsan simpleng scene lang kung san san napupunta,” he shared. Director Rod Marmol was not strict about sticking to the script. So, he and lead actress Sue Ramirez had freedom to ad lib as long as they did not deviate from the story. Because of this, he took great pleasure in making her laugh unexpectedly and break character. “Kasi medyo masungit ‘yung role niya,” he explained.
“Madaming beses kami nag-cuddle,” he continued. There is one love scene, however, that he considers his favorite. “Hinihintay ko kung anong scoring ‘yung papasok,” he added excitedly. After the shoot, he saw that the angles used made the moment truly beautiful. But he understands that the soundtrack will be just as important, “Nakakatulong siya dun sa feeling.”
Aside from catching “Cuddle Weather” in theaters, RK also suggests finding your own cuddle buddy. Pick a day when it is raining, then help set the mood by dimming the lights and closing the curtains. Or you can just play in the rain because adults can do this too. If you are wondering whether he is single, he has one answer for you, “Let’s just say, wala kong problema maghanap ng kayakap.”
