MANILA – Angelica Panganiban recently confessed she regrets turning down a Star Cinema movie “Four Sisters and a Wedding.”
In an interview with the King of Talk Boy Abunda in his YouTube channel uploaded on December 1, Angelica was asked if there was an instance where she declined a movie offer and regretted it afterwards.
The actress confessed that she hasn’t seen the blockbuster film until now.
“Yung ‘Four Sisters,’ hanggang ngayon, hindi ko siya pinapanood,” she said.
“Four Sisters and a Wedding” was Star Cinema’s 20th-anniversary offering for 2013. It was to be headlined by Angelica, Bea Alonzo, Toni Gonzaga, and Angel Locsin.
Angelica even attended the story conference of the movie, but she ended up dropping out of the project.
Shaina Magdayao was later added to the cast.
When asked why she did not end up landing a role in the movie, the actress said: “May mga hindi lang napagkasunduan sa mga agreement, so huwag na lang.”
“Tapos sabi ng Star Cinema, ‘Okay.’ Parang ako, ‘Bakit nag-okay sila kaagad?’” she added laughing.
In the film, sisters Teddie (Gonzaga), Bobbie (Alonzo), Alex (Locsin) and Gabbie (Magdayao) gather home for the wedding of their young brother (Enchong Dee).
However, the four sisters, left with a foul impression after meeting the bride’s family, conspire to block the wedding.
As they scheme to “save” their only brother, the siblings are also forced to face problems in their family.
The movie was a success, and continues to be relevant today as netizens make memes out of Bea’s “Bakit parang kasalanan ko?” line.
Its prequel “Four Sisters Before A Wedding,” was filmed in 2020 which starred Alexa Ilacad as Bobbie, Gillian Vicencio as Alex, Charlie Dizon as Teddie, and Belle Mariano as Gabbie, was also a hit.
It was set in 2003, 10 years before the beginning of the original movie.
