AKISS on a the fore­head and a tight hug from Coco Martin wel­comed Maine Mendoza at the photo shoot for their highly an­tic­i­pated Metro Manila Film Fes­ti­val en­try, “Jack Em Popoy: The Pulis­cred­i­bles,” with Vic Sotto.

The pair of big stars from war­ring net­works met only three months ago to work on the movie— with their bosses’ bless­ing— and it’s great to see they’ve got­ten com­fort­able with each other al­ready. There’s no deny­ing the chem­istry be­tween them even if it is un­clear whether they are part­nered ro­man­ti­cally in

One thing’s for sure though, the fans of Coco and

with In the Know they feel the “kilig” when­ever they see the stars to­gether. Coco mean­while said of his new friend, “Gusto Maine dahilna­paka- down to earth nataokayan­gayon nakakap ag ku wentu han natal a ga ump is ana gk a kai lang an pat ala ga at­a­pa­gaw sa shoot­ing, dumal­dalna r in si ya. Am in inn am an na tin, mag kai bar ink a si kam­ing­ta­hanan. ABS ako at GMA siya.”

To make the most of this one- off project then, they are e pulling all the stops to make e their team- up mem­o­rable. In n fact, Maine has been teach­ing ng Coco to dance, sing and rap ap for the film.

“Never kopa­poyun­na­gawa,” gang. Coco burst out laugh­ing. “Peron a pa ga was a a kin ni ni Maine. K ah it a no para sam gamg a pa mil yang ma­nun­uod .”

Maine is very ex­cited for that part of the movie, es­pe­cially since ince re­hearsals gave her and Coco the op­por­tu­nity to bond.

“A yaw ni ya pot ala ga sum a yaw! yaw! So­brang cute,” Maine gig­gled, led

adding, “Sana­paya­gansi Coco mag- pro­mote sa ‘Eat Bu­laga’ pag nag-‘Su god Ba hay’ k ami. Sob rang matu­tuwaang fans.”

On that note, Coco re­turned the of­fer and said “Ang Probin­syano” will al­ways be open to Maine. “Nap aka g and a po sig urokung mat­u­loyyan,” Coco in­ti­mated. To avoid dis­ap­point­ment, Maine quickly added, “Hindiko pota­la­gaalam if pa­paya­ganako although, ibanana­manako [from other GMA Net­work tal­ents] dahil dinsa so­cial me­dia so sana paya­gan The fa­mous Yaya Dub of course is a dis­cov­ery and tal­ent of TAPE, Inc., pro­ducer of net­work block timer “Eat Bu­laga.”

As co- pro­ducer and di­rec­tor of the movie, In the Know asked Coco how much pres­sure he feels as the MMFF nears.

Ever gen­uinely, the prime time star replied ,“Hindi na ako na ga al alan gay on. Bast a angim­por­tan­temag - en­joy ang mg am anonoods aP asko .”

In re­sponse, Maine said she is just grate­ful to be cast in the movie with the coun­try’s big­gest male stars in Coco and Boss­ing Vic.

“Ay,g ra be, hindikoi na as a hang ma bi big ya na kong pam bi hi rang pa gk a kat a on na ma kat rab a ho si

Coco atsi Boss­ing saisang­pe­likula grate­ful akoat sana­maulit­muli.”
