Kapuso actor Kelvin Miranda denied any involvement, acknowledging the blind item nature and attributing the association with his name to netizens.
During the press conference for Viva Films’ ‘Para Kang Papa Mo,’ we sought clarification from Direk Darryl regarding Kelvin’s response.
“Friend, hindi na dapat nagsalita si Kelvin. Hindi dapat siya nag-react pa. Nag-blind item ako dahil inilatag lang naman sa akin ang kuwentong ‘yon at ginawa kong blind item sa Facebook ko. Wala naman akong sinabing pangalan. Puro clues lang,” explained the controversial director.
Direk Darryl emphasized that there are no issues between him and Kelvin, stating, “Wala kaming problem ni Kelvin. Okey kami. Friends kami. Hindi ko naman sinabing siya ‘yung nasa blind item ko. Blind item ‘yon, so walang dapat mag-react.”
He clarified that his intention was not to disclose the identities involved in the blind item, distancing himself from the speculations made by his followers.
In summary, Direk Darryl clarified that Kelvin was not named as the subject of the blind item, and he has no qualms with the actor. The director reiterated that the blind item was meant for entertainment with no intention of causing harm.
‘Para Kang Papa Mo,’ featuring Mark Anthony Fernandez and Nikko Natividad, is scheduled to premiere on December 13, running in theaters until December 24.
