AI AI on Comeback Movie, Working with Sons Ex B


Two years after she was last seen on big screen, comedy actress Ai Ai delas Alas returns via musical comedy-drama "Sons Of Nanay Sabel (SONS)."

In an interview, the 54-year-old admitted she missed doing these family films, remembering the blockbuster hit franchise she did a long time ago, "Ang Tanging Ina."

Unlike her character there where she was portrayed as "perfect" mother who'd do everything for her kids, the new movie has a mother who has had so many ups and downs and with mistakes that needed rectifications.

The story of "Sons of Abel" sees Ai Ai's character embark on a journey to find her estranged sons in a bid to redeem herself and reunite her family.

Sabel is a former bartender who was supposed to be married to a Prince. Unfortunately, the Prince found out about Sabel leaving her six children at an orphanage, and decides to call off the wedding. After the wedding was called off, Sabel decided to look for her sons and reunite her family once again.

Her sons were left to the care of Sister Mary (SHEREE), who kept all the details of Sabel's kids' foster families and handed it to her when she finally came back as she promised.

Asked how the boys are as actors, whose career she also manages, Ai Ai has nothing but good words.

"They're really good actors," she said. "Whatever their bashers, their haters say, we can't deny that these kids are really talented not only in doing rap but in composing songs. Now, surprisingly, they're good actors too."

Do her talents also give her headaches occasionally, we asked.

Ai Ai noted just like any family, there are times shebhas arguments with his "sons," which she believes is normal in any parent-child relationship.

"Ganu'n talaga (That's how it goes)," she pointed out. "The only thing you could do is understand and give unconditional love. I mean yes, you'll be angry for a while but despite that, your love for the kids remain."

If there are specific issues she has been resolving with Ex Battalion, it involves transitioning. …
