MANILA, Philippines — After being elected as the Quezon City 1st district congressman, Kapamilya star Arjo Atayde says he has no plans to leave showbiz.
According to Push, Arjo just concluded filming “Cattleya Killer” following the campaign season.
“Actually, kakatapos ko lang rin po mag shoot for ‘Cattleya Killer’ right before the campaign, but I won’t be stopping showbiz,” Arjo explained.
Arjo stated that he will emphasize his political career while remaining active in show business.
” Iyan ang aking hanapbuhay. So, I can’t stop that. Of course, I have to prioritize specially this one (public service) but of course hindi na mawawala sa akin ang pag-aartista,” he remarked.
“Kasi that’s one thing [that] I love to do the most and at the same time, make a living. Andon ang hanapbuhay ko,” he added.
When questioned why he lost weight, Arjo explained that he required it for his role in “Cattleya Killer.”
To be honest sa campaign sa sobrang daming schedule, parang intermittent fasting. [Unconsciously] nagkakaroon kami ng late lunch, late dinner. Kailangan rin ako magpa-payat for ‘Cattleya’ so sakto sinadya ko na rin talaga siya for the role para mag-iba ang itsura ko. Kasi for me it’s required for the role also,” he said.
