Action star Robin Padilla praised the work of his nephew, teen star Daniel Padilla, on the upcoming biopic “Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo.”

Siya ang pangkumpleto kasi ng rekado. ‘Yun din ang sinasabi namin na ibang klaseng paglalahad ng pelikula, ibang klase,” Robin said in recent interview.

Robin admitted Daniel plays very important role in the film since it is the younger Padilla who is tasked to explain the importance of Bonifacio to the younger Filipinos.

In the film, Daniel plays a young man studying the life and death of Bonifacio.

Napaka-importante po. Siya ang nagre-represent ng gusto naming malapitan ni direk ng buong produksyon na ito, na ginastusan namin ng mga pera namin. Siya ang nagre-represent ng mga kabataan na gusto naming marating ang mensaheng ito,” Robin added.

Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo” is an official entry to this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival.

Directed by Enzo Williams, the film also stars Jericho Rosales, Eddie Garcia, Jasmine Curtis-Smith and Vina Morales. (MNS)
