Vice President Jejomar Binay revealed he would like Alden Richards, onscreen partner of Yaya Dub, to portray him in a biopic.
“It’s not impossible,” Binay told showbiz reporters in a conference on Tuesday.
“Kaya nabanggit ko [siya] kasi sikat na sikat. Importante sa sine ‘yung sikat na artista para at least may crowd na darating dahil sa kaniya,” Binay added.
The 2016 Presidential candidate was also asked which celebrities he wished to be part of his campaign. He answered “Sana si AlDub,” referring to the accidental love team of Alden and Maine Mendoza.
Meanwhile, social media went abuzz as netizens expressed disappointment over reports that Binay was eyeing Richards to portray him in a movie.
Kathryn Rose Gustilo (@bebekath00) said Binay, who will run for president in the 2016 elections, will just ride on the popularity of Richards, who rose to fame following the success of his loveteam with online sensation Maine Mendoza or “Yaya Dub.”
“Alden to play as Binay in a biopic is ridiculous! It isn’t about the skin color, more than that, Alden’s good image will be tarnished,” @ClosetAldubFan tweeted.
