A jampacked University of the Philippines (UP) Cine Adarna welcomed Lea Salonga and Aga Muhlach for the red carpet premiere of their digitally re-mastered and restored classic film “Sana Maulit Muli” yesterday evening, July 10, part of ABS-CBN’s ongoing Film Restoration campaign.
They were joined by their respective families—Aga was with his wife Charlene Gonzales and twins Andres and Atasha, while Lea was accompanied by her husband Robert and daughter Nicole Chien.
“It feels really nice that ABS-CBN has been making an effort to restore classic films for younger generation. I think it’s really, really, wonderful,” Lea enthuses.
“Lahat ng eksena [sa movie favorite ko] kasi lahat ng eksena masakit,” shares Aga. “Dalang dala ako ng pelikulang iyon and Olive [Lamasan] knows that… marami tayong angst sa buhay e.”
Meanwhile, director Olivia Lamasan recalls the difficulty everyone who became part of film, went through, especially Lea and Aga.
“But nonetheless, I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your commitment, for the passion, for the dedication, for patience and understanding,” she adds. “And for believing na makakagawa tayo ng magandang pelikula.”
Present in the red carpet premiere night were by ABS-CBN restoration head Leo Katigbak and film director Joyce Bernal, alongside cast member Jan Marini and husband Gerard Pizzaras.
