Popular Kapamilya stars Zanjoe Marudo and Maja Salvador take the hot seat on Tonight with Boy Abunda to talk about their close friendship and ties—in line with their latest film, To Love Some Buddy from Black Sheep productions.
Another friends-to-lovers story hits the big screen, top-billed by two of the most promising actors in Philippine entertainment today. The King of Talk sits down with Playhouse actor Zanjoe Marudo and Wildflower star Maja Salvador to talk about their joint project, To Love Some Buddy; a film that tells the story of best friends who experience the struggles of becoming lovers. On talks of friendship, the two stars narrate how their friendship began and reveal that it began during their out-of-the-country shows. Zanjoe tells the story of how Maja helped him out back then and how that started their good relationship with each other.
When asked if there was a point in their life that they felt the possibility of moving their relationship to the next level, the pretty actress couldn’t help but feel awkward, unsure if the idea of becoming more than friends would be a good one. When asked about the reason why, Maja simply answers that it may not look good as both of their previous partners are now dating each other. Although the actress didn’t drop any names, it’s obvious that she’s referring to Kapamilya stars Bea Alonzo and Gerald Anderson.
"Let's be honest. Siyempre sa ibang tao, ang weird naman—nagpalitan?" she tells Tito Boy but then also teased that if Zanjoe had come into the picture earlier, things may have been different as she openly admits to have felt a spark with the hunky actor.
After talking about their film, the King of Talk then opens up a recent interview with Zanjoe’s Playhouse co-star Angelica Panganiban and how the actress deemed him as “husband material”. The actor expresses that he’s flattered to be called such and admits likewise—that deems her as wife material as well and would want to be in a relationship with someone who gives their all in a relationship the way Angelica does.
Before the end of the show, Tito Boy then challenges the two stars to play the “Somebody Challenge” where they have to choose which between two characteristics they prefer more in a person. From somebody rich or sexy to somebody you can laugh or cry with, Maja and Zanjoe both answer and choose with their respective reasons. However, the ‘somebody’ question of the night goes to the last one where Tito Boy asks them to choose between somebody who’s a good kisser and a good masseuse. Maja chooses the latter while Zanjoe chooses a good kisser, reasoning that you can always get a good massage from someone else but you can’t just go around kissing other people.
