Kris Aquino, known in real life as Kristina Bernadette Cojuangco Aquino who also has dubbed as the ‘Queen of All Media” in Philippine show business, has once again announced and hinted that she will be leaving Philippine showbiz; more specifically leaving ABS-CBN this 2016.
Given Kris Aquino’s Philippine showbiz history, people are generally skeptical about her recent announcement. Whether it will be ‘for good’ or simply temporary, let us take a look back at the most unforgettable moments in Kris Aquino’s showbiz career.
Let’s begin by listing down the Top 10 Unforgettable Moments in Kris Aquino’s Showbiz Career…
(1) Kris Aquino’s First Foray into Film via ‘Pido Dida: Sabay Tayo’ with the Late-Rene Requiestas
Kris Aquino, who only back then was 19-year old, first made her movie debut opposite Rene Requiestas in 1990 with Regal Films romantic comedy ‘Pido Dida: Sabay Tayo’.
Pido Dida was a story of two kids growing up together in an orphanage wherein the two think they were siblings. After an abusive family adopted and take them both away from the orphanage, the two ended up running away only to live on a shanty town wherein they make ends meet. Later their real family found them in which they discovered that they are not biological related. Dida (Kris) went to a rich family while Pido (Rene) went to go on living in an impoverish state. The two eventually found love and decided to tie the not in the end.
The film’s box office success earned Requiestas and Aquino the titles “Box Office King and Queen” by the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation Citation back in 1991. The film also spun two sequels with Pido Dida: Kasal Na (1991) and Pido Dida: May Kambal Na (1992).
Amidst the positive response from the general movie going audience which transferred into box office sales, film critics heavily criticized the film in which some have noted that the daughter of the by then-President Corazon Aquino “has no talent.”
While her mother was not too enthusiastic with such negative reviews, Kris humbly accepted this and continued starring on more films that later honed her talent and gave her a new title… ‘The Massacre Queen.’
