Vhong Navarro, star of the movie “Mang Kepweng: Ang Lihim ng Bandanang Itim” admitted that he was relieved that he will now not be able to compete in the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) 2020 with some big stars like Vice Ganda, Coco Martin, and Vic Sotto.

“Siyempre ‘yung totoo nabawasan ‘yung kaba ko, konti. Kasi siyempre iba ‘yung Vice, iba ‘yung Bossing (Vic), iba ‘yung Coco eh. ‘Di ba kapag film fest, every year ‘yan, makikita mo sila, talagang banggaan ‘yan sa takilya,” Vhong said this Tuesday at the digital media launch of “Mang Kepweng: Ang Lihim ng Bandanang Itim.”

Although his happy that his film is among the official participants in MMFF 2020, Navarro shared the sadness that the hard-earned project will not be seen in the cinema.

“Masaya dahil nakapasok kami ang ‘Mang Kepweng.’ Kaya lang nandoon ‘yung konting lungkot kasi nga hindi tulad nang ini-expect natin na film fest. Ito ‘yung makabago. Na ang i-enjoy-in na lang natin dito ay kung paano tayo papasok sa makabagong paraan at kung paano mae-enjoy pa rin ng tao na para silang nanonood sa totoong sinehan. Ang importante kasi rito ay kasama mo ang family mo. Basta para sa akin itong ‘Mang Kepweng’ ay ibinigay ko po ‘yung best ko at ibinigay namin ang best naming lahat, kaya sobrang saya ako,” Vhong added.
