Actor Cesar Montano is back again in film industry together with international producers of Inspire studios, for his film Freedom Fighters.
According to the actor, he will be doing more meaningful projects for his movie line ups as well as getting back his faith in church.
“To do meaningful films na gusto Niya gawin. All of the films na naka-line up na gusto Niyang ipagawa sa akin. He gave me the talent to do films and I will focus sa paggawa pa ng mga pelikula,” said Cesar during his interview on Thursday.
As per Cesar, his mind is more peaceful than before after going back his faith to the Lord. “I feel relaxed, I feel happy from what I am doing,” he quipped.
The actor also shared what was the reason that pushed his faith to be stronger than before.
“One day, God talked to me. Sabi niya ‘I gave you great talent to do films, bakit kung ano-ano pa pinaggagagawa mo?’ …So I decided na ito na gawin ko,” ani aktor. “Sabi ko, ‘Sige Lord, mag-decide Ka, gagawin ko na ‘to.’ When I decided, hindi ko lang masabi ngayon ang dami ko pang gagawin na pelikula but it’s there, naka-line up pa.”
In contemporary of his stronger faith, the actor was also asked if he already forgave those people who have did him wrong.
“Hiningi ko na rin ng tawad kay Lord. You have to forgive those people who hurt you, who owe you a lot na nasaktan ka. Emotionally, kasi ikaw lang magdadala no’n,” he answered.
“‘Pag hindi mo pinatawad, ikaw lang magdadala no’n, ikaw rin ang mag-suffer. You should throw away hate, give it to the Lord.”
Cesar also admitted that it wasn’t it for him along the process.
Hindi madali magpatawad. It’s so hard and you have to pray for it. But God said, Ask anything in My name and I will give it to you,” he explained.
He also understands if he has not yet forgiven by the people whom he did something wrong in the past including his ex-wife, Sunshine Cruz.
Based on the actor, he already asked for forgiveness from Sunshine.
“Hindi natin masasabi ‘yun (kung pinatawad na niya ako), only the person. Kung siya ang nakakaramdam kung natanggap (na) niya, kung nakapagpatawad siya, walang makakapagsabi no’n kung ‘di siya.”
Cesar also said that he wants to end the year with a peaceful mind.
“At least nasabi mo na ‘yun and, of course, bago magsara ang taon dapat gawin natin lahat ‘yun, to ask forgiveness sa lahat ng taong nagawan natin nang pagkakamali.”
The actor also explained why he chose to kept his silence despite of all the statements of his former wife.
“Hindi lang naman kasi ako ang involved at siya; may mga batang involved (dito). And if I prolonged that, kawawa ‘yung mga bata. I have to think about the children also. Ang daling magsalita (but) I have to think of our children.”
And now Christmas is yet to come, there is only one thing that he wish.
“Peace of mind. The best siguro ang mahihiling ng kahit sino is peace of mind. Kasi you cannot enjoy anything without peace of mind. Kahit na gaano ka ka-successful kung wala kang peace of mind, that’s nothing,” he said.
