Comedian-host Vice Ganda has resumed filming his first movie, a remake of 1980s film “Petrang Kabayo.” It was January of this year when Vice Ganda announced his first major film. Three months later, however, the comedian confirmed the delay in filming “Petrang Kabayo.”

“Na-delay kasi ginawa din namin ‘yong ‘Hating Kapatid’ ni Judy Ann (Santos) at Sarah (Geronimo). Pero eventually nag-start na nga kaya excited akong gawin, tapusin at ipalabas na para magpatawa sa mga tao,” the resident judge of hit talent program “Showtime” told ABS-CBN News.

Vice Ganda, Jose Mari Viceral in real life, said when he first joined show business almost a decade ago, he never dreamed that he would eventually star in his own movie.

“Noong pumasok ako sa showbiz, ok artista, gagawa ng pelikula. Pero never kong na-foresee na ako ang bida talaga. Kaya sobrang blessed at nagpa-pasalamat ako at ini-enjoy ko ang moment,” Vice Ganda said.

Before he attained his success, he said it was a “long journey” for him. “Sobrang pinaghirapan at sobrang ipinagdasal ko ito.”

Vice Ganda said he owes his success to “Showtime.” “Doon na-showcase kung ano ang kaya kong gawin as a performer, as a judge. At ‘yon ang malakas ang impact sa mga manonood.”

“Petrang Kabayo” is a film about an ill-mannered Petra who is cursed by Silveria, the godess of horses. The curse turns Petra into a white horse. He only returns to normal if he respects and treats people well.

The remake is being directed by Wenn Deramas. -ABS-CBNnews
