Kris Aquino asks Lolit Solis to negotiate a project for her after cancellation of MMFF entry
Kris Aquino recently asked Lolit Solis if she could negotiate a deal for a new teleserye for her.
Aquino’s request came after Solis aired her opinion on the cancelation of the actress’ entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).
“Grabe ang bilis ng pangyayari kaya I can just imagine ang frustration ni Kris,” Solis said in her Instagram post last Sunday, Aug. 18.

Para naman naglaro ang kapalaran kay Kris Aquino ha Salve. Excited pa naman siya magbalik trabaho at bagay naman sa pagbabalik niya ang napili niyang project na Kampon, kung bakit nagkaroon ng hitches ito. Maganda din naman ang ipinalit nila kay Derek Ramsay na si Gabby Concepcion pero siguro nga dahil sa bilis ng mga pangyayari nakalimutan nila ipadala agad ang letter informing the commitee nang pagpapalit ng leading man. Grabe ang bilis ng pangyayari kaya I can just imagine ang frustration ni Kris. Sayang dahil talagang parang itinakda iyon project sa pagbabalik tambalan nila ni Gabby na siyang nagsimula ng showbiz career niya tapos heto pa ang magiging ending. Siguro naman maayos ang lahat dahil hindi naman akalain magkakaroon ng problema kay Derek. Saka dapat dahil sanay na si Atty Joji sa pagsali sa festival alam na niya ang mga sinusunod na panuntunan kaya dapat naayos agad ito. Well, usually naman mga setback na ganito is for the better baka mas maganda ang kalalabasan, malay natin. Wait na lang tayo. #classiclolita #takeitperminutemeganun #72naako
Aquino broke the news of her MMFF entry “(K)ampon” being canceled last Friday, Aug. 16, via an Instagram post. She cited the late request to change the film’s lead actor as the reason for the cancelation.
Derek Ramsay, Aquino’s initial leading man in the film, was set to be replaced by Gabby Concepcion after Ramsay withdrew from the project. But Aquino stated that the deadline to apply for the change was on July 31, and the production group behind the film sent the request only on Aug. 5.
The MMFF executive committee denied the request since it was submitted five days late, as per Aquino’s Instagram post.
Despite the mishap, Solis remained hopeful for Aquino. She said that setbacks are usually for the better.
Aquino assured Solis that she was “chill” despite the recent developments with her supposed return to horror. She then asked Solis if she could negotiate a TV series for her.
“Maybe kagaya ng pag negotiate mo for me ng Star Talk before, you can negotiate w/ @gmanetwork a teleserye, same slot as ika-6 na autos na super sinubaybayan namin? #faith” Aquino said.
(Maybe like how you negotiated Star Talk for me before, you can negotiate with GMA a teleserya, same slot as “Ika-6 na Utos” that we really followed?)
To take her mind off the supposed first day of shooting for the film, Aquino said she will be taking a beach trip with her sons today, Aug. 20. /ra
