With back-to-back typhoons devastating the country in the past few months and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic since December, Aga Muhlach urges everyone to continue helping victims of the local disasters.
This comes after a member of the press asked the actor, along with Bela Padilla, Xia Vigor, Iza Calzado, Karylle, and Sunshine Dizon, in the media launch for WeTV Philippines what charity work he has done for those who have been affected by Typhoons Rolly and Ulysses.
"Sa akin lang naman, parang may sakuna man o hindi, parati naman taon-taon may nangyayari sa atin, especially this year na marami tayong pinagdadaanan talaga," he said last Wednesday, November 18.
“Bilang payo sa lahat, tumulong na lang tayo nang tumulong. May mga tao naman din na walang tigil tumutulong," he added.
He says despite having the government, our Lord God, and people who help as part of their duties, we should still do our part in helping people in need.
"Basta sa atin lang, gawin natin yung hanggang kaya natin. Bukal sa puso natin parati. Tumulong lang tayo nang tumulong," Aga said.
Aga adds that the country goes through hardships each year, even without the pandemic and the typhoons.
"May bagyo man o wala, may pandemya man o wala, marami ang naghihirap. So, hanggang kaya natin tumulong, tumulong na tayo," he said.
"Again, hindi naman sa laki ‘yan. Basta may maitulong, hindi rin parating pera," he added.
Aga was present in the media launch for his 2019 blockbuster movie Miracle in Cell No. 7 alongside Xia Vigor and Bela Padilla. The said movie will premiere on WeTV Philippines this coming November 27.
The actor expressed his elation that a digital streaming platform like WeTV gives viewers opportunities to see Asian movies and television series.
"Parang na-excite ako because it’s nice that they were able to [...] kasi minsan gagawa ka ng pelikula lang in terms of ticket returns. Minsan, nakakatakot to experiment," he explains.
"But because of this platform, this WeTV, parang mas nakakatapang gumawa ng mga pelikula na gusto mong gawin talaga, na feeling mo may saysay, na hindi ka mag-iisip na panoorin mo kaya ito o hindi," he added.
Aga also teased the press that he will be doing another remake of a Korean film come 2021.
