THE “P” TALKS!

AND I asked the indefatigable producer of Godfather Productions, Joed Serrano on his special day, what three wishes he has inside his heart.
“Mare, ‘eto lang, 1. That God will guide & protect me from work & people; 2. That I grow old with the right person in my life; and 3. Abundance in all so I could help more.”
And his prayer?
“My prayer is for me to be greater so I could serve God & be a blessing to much more people.”
On his birthday, Joed celebrated it with the storycon of one of his mange projects that will star no less than the one and the only Superstar, Nora Aunor, “Kontrabida”.
After which, the grand presscon for his much-awaited “Anak ng Macho Dancer” happened. Both were held in Annabel’s Restaurant.
“Ang dami’ng naglalaro sa utak ko na pwede kong magawa’ng projects, soon. Uunahin ko muna alongside with my life story ito’ng kay Mama Guy. Umiiral ang pagka-fan ko.
“Nung una, inisip ko na sana silani ate Vi (Vilma Santos) ang gawan ko ng project. Okay naman pala kay Mama Guy. Pero dumating itong Adolf Alix and Gerry Gracio project na si Wendell Ramos naman ang naglapit sa akin. Mabilis lang ang mga pangyayari. Kaya ‘eto na. Binuo na ang cast. It will have Jaclyn Jose, Rosanna Roces, Bembol Roco, and of course, the stars of Godfather Ricky Gumera and Charles Nathan and a lot more.
“Sabi ko rin kung magka-sequel ito, malamang dun na magsasama ang “Ekstra” at ang “Kontrabida”. Let’s keep our fingers crossed. Marami pa ‘yan. There will always be a way for things to happen.
“I just want to do more films. A movie with Sharon (Cuneta) and Maricel (Soriano). Sana, mapagsama ko rin sila. ‘Yan ang mga dreams ko. Masaya lang ako na at this point, marami na ang blessed to have work. Nasa pandemya tayo pero nakakatulong pa rin tayo para umayos ang buhay ng mga tao.”
Apart from being a producer, Joed wants to gift his idol Superstar her own restaurant. Yes, he will name it the Superstar Restaurant.
“Yun bang mala-Hard Rock Café ang dating. Where ‘yung iba pa niyang memorabilia will be housed. Nakita ko sa mga sine-share ng fans kay direk Adolf sa mga kailangan niya for the movie, ang dami pa pala. And siyempre, hindi mawawala dun ‘yung collection of her prestigious awards. Para naman makita, hindi lang ng mga kababayan nayin, kundi ng mga turista o taga-ibang bansa’ng kakain at tatapak doon ang mga bagay tungkol sa ating National Treasure na karapatdapat na rin talagang gawaran ng National Artist na karangalan.”
Observing the health protocols Annabel’s Restaurant that night shone brighter as his Joed’s stars, Direk Joel Lamangan and staff and the members of the press partook of the special dinner and moments with his stars.
On January 31, 2021, the premiere showing of “Anak ng Macho Dancer” can be watched on different platforms.
So, get your tickets now! And make this as your gift to the Godfather, Mr. P! (30)
