Is Michael V still a Kapuso?
Prominent comedian Michael V was asked if he is still a Kapuso because of this decision that he made for his career right now.
Popularly known as Bitoy, the comedian already done several remarkable projects in the Kapuso network. He is known for not just being one of the main characters in the longest-running gag show Bubble Gang and the long-running sitcom Pepito Manaloto, he is also involved in the creative aspects of the said shows.
According to entertainment columnist Gorgy Rula in PEP, Bitoy decided not to renew yet his exclusive contract with GMA-7. It is because he wants to take a break, especially that the country is still suffering from the pandemic.
His sitcom with Manilyn Reynes is set to have its finale and this will be replaced by its prequel which will feature the story of young Pitoy and Elsa during the 80s.
During the recent media conference for this, Gorgy Rula asked Michael V if he is still under the management of GMA-7. The comedian did not answer the question directly but instead, he said it is difficult having no job at this moment of the health crisis, especially that there is a “no work no pay” policy.
The entertainment columnist said that a reliable source revealed the Bitoy will not leave the Kapuso network but it is still unsure if he already renewed his contract.
It is also rumored that Bitoy wants to do a movie once the pandemic situation would ease up. There were also speculations that he will be part of Voltes V: Legacy project. However, the comedian said that it is not yet official.
“I’ve been in talks with them sa production, kay Direk Mark Reyes. Pero wala pa kaming concrete na plano. Siguro nga dahil parang kung ano man yung magiging participation ko kung sakaling makakapasok tayo diyan, hindi pa rin nade-determine. Hintayin natin. I’ll keep everyone posted… kasi excited talaga ako para diyan,” Michael V said.
