Kapamilya stars Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla are talking about getting married during the pandemic.
Collectively known as KathNiel, the stars finally broke their silence on rumors that they are taking the plunge.
In an exclusive interview for TV Patrol Monday night, KathNiel confirmed that they are really getting married not in real life but only in their digital movie.
“We’re getting married… sa pinakabagong handog sa ating lahat ng Star Cinema. Sa digital movie series na ‘The House Arrest of Us,’” the real-life sweethearts revealed.
“The House Arrest of Us” is a 13-part romantic family digital movie series about two individuals caught by the lockdown under one roof, together with their families, the news program reported.
But the stars clarified that the digital movie is not a sequel to their 2018 blockbuster film “The Hows of Us.”
“It’s not a sequel. Basically hindi siya connected sa ‘Hows of Us’. It’s a family series, nandun din ‘yung romance. Halo-halo siya pero it’s not related kay George at kay Primo’ (their characters from ‘The Hows of Us’),” they said.
The cast and crew for the digital movie have been shooting for the past two weeks now.
“Iba siya sa nakasanayan namin. Naka-lock in lahat ‘yung set-up tapos limited lang talaga ‘yung mga pumapasok, at lahat fina-follow ‘yung safety protocols. Nakakapanibago pero lahat naman nagko-comply,” Bernardo said.
Padilla said: “Kakaiba ‘yung experience na nandito kami sa village, parang nasa bubble lang din kami. Walang pwedeng lumabas o pumasok. Kami kami lang ang nandito, astig din siya.”
Fans of KathNiel speculated that the stars were finally getting married for real after the mothers of the stars, Min Bernardo and Karla Estrada, posted photos of a wedding gown and invitation with the ‘KN’ initials.
Also appearing in the digi movie are: Herbert Bautista, Ruffa Gutierrez, Gardo Versoza, Arlene Muhlach, Dennis Padilla, Riva Quenery, Alora Sasam, and Anthony Jennings.
The “House Arrest of US” premieres on Oct. 24 on KTX.ph and Oct. 25 on iWant TFC.
