Veteran movie director and actor Manuel Castaneda was apparently happy for the success of Darryl Yap’s ‘Maid in Malacanang’ movie.
In a Facebook post, Castaneda said he has no doubt the movie Maid in Malacang is a box office hit.
However in a surprising twist, Castaneda thanked the Dilawans, the communist and all the anti-Marcos groups for the free publicity, hence its success. He said because of their over the top epal, the Marcos camp benefited from the attention-grabbing noise they created.
Of course, Castaneda also thanked MIM (Maid in Malacanang) whom he credited for reviving the local movie industry after a long period of dormancy due to the pandemic. The Filipinos, Castaneda said, have regain their enthusiasm to go to the movie theaters.
Castaneda confessed in the end that he has yet to watch MIM but not because he does not like it but because he ran out of tickets of the time he preferred to watch it. But he promised to come back the following day to watch it.
You may now read Manuel Castaneda’s original FB post below.
There’s no doubt Maid in Malacanang is a box office hit. Salamat sa mga dilawan, komunista at iba pang mga anti Marcos for giving it more than enough publicity. Dahil sa kanilang sobrang epal, yung kabilang kampo ang nakinabang.
Salamat din sa MIM ay binuhay nito ang industriya ng pelikulang pilipino pagkatapos ng mahabang pahinga dahil sa pandemya. Ganado uli ang mga Pinoy na manood ng sine.
Nope, hindi ko pa napapanood ang MIM dahil naubusan ako ng ticket sa time na gusto kong panoorin. Babalik na lang ako bukas.
