Ilacad’s announcement led to playful remarks about the 2020 film “Four Sisters Before the Wedding,” which was the prequel to the 2013 comedy-drama film “Four Sisters and a Wedding.” In the movie, Ilacad played the teenage academic achiever Bobbie Salazar.
One @ilovebelle10 jokingly expressed envy after Ilacad showed her academic achievement to her fans, making a reference to the character.
“Bobbie! Ba’t nasa’yo na ang lahat?” the netizen asked Ilacad. (Bobbie, why do you have everything?)
“Now we know kung bakit ikaw ang gumanap na Bobbie Salazar,” another netizen, @naveojnar, said. (Now we know why you played Bobbie Salazar.)
Aside from fans, Ilacad received congratulatory greetings from fellow celebrities Kaye Abad, Melai Cantiveros and Miss Universe Philippines 2014 MJ Lastimosa. JB
