Zaijian on working with Maris and Iñigo for 'Boyette': ‘Sobrang solid’

Maris Racal and Iñigo Pascual have reunited in the film “Boyette” — and their colleagues have nothing but love and appreciation for them.

Together with members of the press yesterday, October 13, director Jumbo Albano and film's star Zaijian Jaranilla talked about how amazing working with the two were.

Maris and Iñigo, known for their tandem MarNigo, will play the friends of Zaijian's Boyette. Direk Jumbo shared, "Sila 'yung magiging mga college friends ni Boyette na makakasama niya sa kanyang wacky adventures."

Zaijian described his working relationship with MarNigo as, “Sobrang solid po.”

“First time ko maka-trabaho sina Ate Maris at Kuya Inigo, [kaya] siyempre may onting ilangan pa [nung una]. Kapaan pa," he related. "Pero sobrang unexpected po ‘yung friendship namin, kasi kahit ngayong tapos na ‘yung pelikula namin, hindi pa rin natatapos ‘yung communication. Sobrang saya po.”

Meanwhile, Direk Jumbo spoke of Maris and Iñigo’s professionalism on set. He said, “Talagang makikinig sila tapos gagawin nila 'yung mga sinasabi ko.”

According to Direk Jumbo, the two pushed themselves to get the best takes during filming.

He shared, “Magsasabi sila na parang, ‘Kaya pa, kaya pa.’ Eh 'di sige gawin natin. Kasi parang 'yun ang gusto ko maging feel sa set. Noong bago kami mag-shoot, sinabi ko sa kanilang lahat na gusto ko, 'pag nagshu-shoot na tayo, collaborative tayong lahat. Kasi, at the end of the day, hindi ko lang siya pelikula, Pelikula nating lahat ito.”

“Boyette” is coming-of-age story of a gay boy who has just entered college. Direk Jumbo shared, “It’s a family comedy, na punong-puno ng saya, puso, at kilig.”
