‘KilaboTitos’ Ogie Alcasid and Ian Veneracion recently brought fun and kilig on the TWBA studio as they talk about their upcoming concert. According to Ogie, the wordplay ‘KilaboTitos’ was somewhat inspired by Ian’s huge fan base composed mostly of Titas and Senior Citizens. “Ang complaint ko is that sa dami ng mga senior fans niya, ang dami naming tickets na twenty percent off. Sabi ko, bottomline, teka kikita ba tayo,” Ogie said in jest.
Ian doesn’t mind being tagged as the heartthrob of aged fans. He, in fact, takes it as a compliment to his effectiveness as an actor. “I feel proud. I call them the discerning ones. For example, when you’re an actor and you do a scene saying ‘I love you’ to your partner, it’s easy to convince someone who’s young and wala pang masyadong experience. Pero, for someone who’s ka-age natin or Tita or Lola, they can see if you’re lying, eh. So, feeling ko mas mahirap i-please”, the timeless actor explained. He also shared that he’d always feels delighted when approached by lovely ladies for photo opportunities but only to be told, “My mom is a big fan of you.”
