Maris reveals why she and Iñigo went separate ways

August 29, 2019
MARIS Racal says she’s not worried that the movie “I’m Ellenia L” (a play on the word Millennial) will be shown at a time when she and her leading man, Iñigo Pascual, are no longer together. “Hindi naman kami magka-love team dito,” she says. “The movie is not a love story or romance but more of a comedy. Hindi siya about a love team. I play Ellenia, a girl na may vlog at gustong maging sikat na influencer at makilala sa social media. The story is relevant these days kasi halos lahat, nasa social media at marami nang may sarili nilang vlogs and I’m sure, lahat sila, makaka-relate kay Ellenia. And I’m glad that our Director, Boy 2 Quizon, assured us na the direction of the movie’s promo will not just capitalize on our love team but on the fact na very hot ngayon ang topic nito about social media.”
