This is the real “relationship” between Brillante Mendoza and Coco Martin
Award-winning film director Brillante Mendoza revealed the real “relationship” he has with Ang Probinsyano actor Coco Martin.
Direk Brillante and Coco did the daring indie film Masahista in 2005. However, after doing the film, Coco thought of working in Vancouver, Canada because for him he has no place in the showbiz industry.
He thought that he was just a “bold actor”. “Ginawa niya ‘yun dahil sa maraming disappointments niya sa buhay. Bold actor lang daw siya, maraming issues, kaya nagtrabaho siya sa Canada,” the director shared during his recent guesting on Cristy Ferminute.
Direk Brillante Mendoza was there to promote his movie Mindanao that it included in the official entries of Manila Film Festival 2019. The movie features Judy Ann Santos. She already won a Best Actress award in Cairo Film Festival. Based on the article from Pilipino Star Ngayon, it is inevitable to associate the director with the lead actor of Ang Probinsyano.
In line with this, entertainment reporter Cristy Fermin asked direk Brillante if it is fine with him to be asked about Coco. He was asked about his real “relationship” with the actor. According to Fermin, it had been a long time since this rumors about them came out.
With all honesty, the filmmaker said, “We’re more than friends. We’re more than brothers. It’s beyond that. Hanggang ngayon, nagkakausap kami, walang nagbago sa aming pagkakaibigan.”
Meanwhile, direk Brillante said that he is very happy for the career now for the Kapamilya actor, based on the article. They were both just dreaming to make it big in the entertainment industry before. From that humble beginning, now, their success is widely-known.
