The Optimum superstar Claudine Barretto is finally going back to acting!
Her producer, Bianca Lapus, announced this 2020 that Claudine Barretto will mark her comeback in the showbiz.
Bianca told PUSH in an exclusive interview with Claudine Barretto and Aga Muhlach on the digitally restored Kailangan Kita.
“I’m one of her close friends and I’ve been co-managing her with Star Magic since last year,”
“We’re just basically planning for her comeback. And now, we’re doing everything. Like right now, nagda-diet siya.”
The actress’ manager Bianca also shared plans for the return of Claudine.
“Nagpapaganda, nagpapa-sexy. Pine-prepare niya ‘yung sarili niya to make a comeback. She’s really excited to work again.”
She also pointed out that her role as a manager is to ensure that Claudine is in her full form in time for her return.
“As a co-manager, siyempre dalawa kayong nagpu-push. Siyempre alam naman nating she’s one of the original babies of Star Magic talaga. It just really happened that she’s back with Star Magic. More than a co-manager, as a good friend also I’m making other ways also para makatulong sa kanyang pagbabalik.”
Claudine Barretto is also set to make a teleserye and a film.
“We have an offer for a soap opera. Well, ‘yung movie nasa negotiations stage pa. But we’re just really focusing now on ‘yung ayusin talaga ni Claudine ‘yung sarili niya,”
Although Claudine received offers from various networks, she stressed that the Optimum Star, who is still part of Star Magic, is prioritizing her home network.
“We also have an offer from other networks. Pero siyempre, we’re prioritizing more siyempre ang kanyang pagiging tunay na Kapamilya.”
According to Bianca, she came in as Claudine’s manager months before the latter got embroiled in various controversies involving the latter’s family.
Meanwhile, leaks came out last year about Cathy Garcia-Molina directing the reunion film Piolo Pascual and Claudine Barretto — the continuation of Olivia Lamasan’s “Milan.”
