Miss Universe 2010 fourth runner up Venus Raj is ready to conquer the big screem as she is set to star in her first movie, the horror flick “Pridyider.”

“First time ko pong umarte on the big screen kasi ‘yung ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya’ nauna na sa television. Ito ‘yung unang unang acting stint ko. Actually noong una hindi ako sanay at hindi ko alam ang kalalabasan,” Raj said during a press conference of the Regal Films movie.

Raj said she’s just thankful that her director and co-stars have been very supportive.

“Sabi ko nga sobrang babait ng direktor at kasama kong artista na gina-guide nila ako kung ano ang gagawin ko at paano ko sasabihin ang lines ko. Nakakatuwa kasi maganda ang kinalabasan,” she said.

The “Umagang Kay Ganda” host added that what makes the project easier is the fact that her role is similar to her real-life personality.

“Hindi masyadong malayo, kaya hindi masyadong nahirapan. Pero since it’s first time nandoon pa din ‘yung hirap,” she said.

“Pridyider,” directed by Rico Maria Ilarde, is the sequel of a memorable episode in the very first “Shake Rattle and Roll” topbilled by Janice de Belen and directed by the late Ishmael Bernal.

De Belen is still part of the new “Pridyider” along with acclaimed actors Baron Geisler, Ronnie Lazaro, Joel Torre and JM de Guzman. (MNS)
