On TFC’s 15th anniversary and Star Cinema’s 16th year, the one and only Megastar Sharon Cuneta and the one and only Comedy Queen Ai-Ai Delas Alas come together for the first time in “Best Friends Forever (BFF).”
The stellar combination, made even brighter by the skillful talents of top comedy director Wenn V. Deramas and excellent scriptwriter Mel Del Rosario, is set to be one of this year’s top-grossing and funniest movie team-ups.
The film revolves around the lives of two women who despite their differences have developed a strong bond that made them commit to become each other’s best friend for life. As the story progresses, the women will be seen falling for a common love interest. One of the country’s most versatile young actors, John Estrada, plays this role. As to how long their friendship would last, only the man who won both their hearts could say.
Off-screen, Sharon and Ai-Ai have very different personalities but they share the same knack for comedy that shines throughout the movie. “Si Ai-Ai, yung movies niya, karamihan ng Tagalog movies sa iPod ko kanya,” Sharon reveals. And as they spend days and nights working on the project, the two became real friends.
Last year, they rocked box office statistics with their respective projects—Sharon in the critically acclaimed Chito Rono masterpiece “Caregiver” and Ai-Ai in the MMFF runaway winner “Ang Tanging Ina N’yong Lahat! Without doubt, BFF will be another winner and blockbuster this year.
This is Sharon’s first venture into comedy after a long, long time, and for Ai-Ai, this is also the first time that her comedy skills will be pitted against one of the best dramatic actresses. “Noong araw, noong 80s, pinapanood ko na siya at isa siya sa talagang nagagalingan akong aktres natin!” says Ai-Ai.
BFF also stars Chokoleit, Joy Viado, Empress Shuck, Enchong Dy, Miles Ocampo, DJ Durano, and the award-winning veteran actress Gina Pareno.
Watch out for BEST FRIENDS FOREVER soon to hit theaters this Mother’s month of May!
