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 â€œPridyider.â€
â€œFirst time ko pong umarte on the big screen kasi â€˜yung â€˜Maalaala Mo Kayaâ€™ nauna na sa television. Ito â€˜yung unang unang acting stint ko. Actually noong una hindi ako sanay at hindi ko alam ang kalalabasan,â€ Raj said during a press conference of the Regal Films movie.
Raj said sheâ€™s just thankful that her director and co-stars have been very supportive.
â€œSabi 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,â€ she said.
The â€œUmagang Kay Gandaâ€ host added that what makes the project easier is the fact that her role is similar to her real-life personality.
â€œHindi masyadong malayo, kaya hindi masyadong nahirapan. Pero since itâ€™s first time nandoon pa din â€˜yung hirap,â€ she said.
â€œPridyider,â€ directed by Rico Maria Ilarde, is the sequel of a memorable episode in the very first â€œShake Rattle and Rollâ€ topbilled by Janice de Belen and directed by the late Ishmael Bernal.
De Belen is still part of the new â€œPridyiderâ€ along with acclaimed actors Baron Geisler, Ronnie Lazaro, Joel Torre and JM de Guzman. (MNS)
