Vic Sotto sees the success of his upcoming Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry “My Little Bossing” on its “three child stars.”


“My Little Bossings” not only stars the comedian himself along Kris Aquino, but new child wonder Ryzza Mae Dizon and Kris’ son Bimby Yap as well.

Explaining his statement, Vic explained on “Kris TV” in an episode that aired on Tuesday: “(I have my) fingers crossed (that the film will be a success) and the fact that we have three child superstars with us, Aiza Seguerra (being the third), who for me, until now, in my eyes, is still a child.”

He added in jest: “He/she (Aiza) is still a kid.”

According to Kris, Aiza will be playing a mother role in the OctoArts/MZET/APT/Kris Aquino-produced film.

“Well, magte-trenta na eh, gano’n talaga ’yon,” said Aiza, who is also on the “My Little Bossings” set where Kris did the interview with Vic, co-producers Orly Ilacad and Tony Tuviera and director Marlon Rivera (“Ang Babae sa Septic Tank”).

Kris thanked the singer-actress for being part of their film despite the latter’s participation in another MMFF entry “Be Careful With My Heart The Movie.”

To this, Aiza replied, “Si Bossing (Vic), si Mr. T (Tuviera), family. Kumbaga, family first.”

On the other hand, Vic thanked Kris for giving Bimby the go signal to accept his first big screen project. “We also like to thank you for entrusting Bimby to us,” he said.

Vic also expressed, “Ganap na ganap na (talaga ang movie)! Ako, personally, I’m excited that this is a different thing for me but I’m more excited for the kids eh.”

Kris, a self-professed proud stage mother to Bimby, shared her preparations for her son. “Tuluy-tuloy naman ang pagko-kondisyon ko sa kanya, so on my end okay naman.”

“On my end naman, si Ryzza naman kahit saan mo itapon ’yon, okay naman ’yon… She’s very excited to meet Bimby,” added Vic.

In the same “Kris TV” episode, Kris explained that “My Little Bossings” is far from Vic’s usual fantasy-comedy films.

“This is back to basic, heartwarming (movie) na tungkol sa pamilya. I think ang anyo at kasarian ng pamilya sa Pilipinas ay ibang iba na ngayon and I think it’s acceptance of who you are and what you are.

“Ako na-excite kasi totoo naman (na) he (Bimby) will be just playing himself kaya ’di ako nahirapan. When Bibeth (Orteza) sent the script, sabi ko this won’t be a problem for my son because the character is written as him. Feeling ko kailangan ko siyang imulat sa kung ano ang mundo and I think itong movie na ito, Ryzza will be the perfect guide to see (the real world),” Kris said. (Manila Bulletin)
