Robin Padilla successfully revived his showbiz career after a downfall

 

NAGKAROON AKO NG pagkakataon na ma-interview si Robin Padilla sa Inside the Ci-nema on Cinema One. It was my first lengthy interview with him. The moment I saw him on the studio, mas lalo kong napatunayan na iba talaga ang taglay na karisma ni Binoe (palayaw ni Robin). He came to the set not in his trademark leather jacket and denim pants but in a linen suit na mas lalong nagpatingkad sa kanyang kaguwapuhan at kaseksihan. He is magnetic kaya naman hindi nakapagtataka kung bakit maraming tao ang naa-attract sa kanya. 

Sinabi ni Robin sa akin during the interview that he wanted to be a priest, a soldier and then an actor. Nagkuwento rin siya tungkol kay Deo Fajardo who discovered him. “Sa mga nagsasabi na walang tunay na mga kaibigan sa showbiz, hindi totoo iyan. Dikong (Deo) called all his friends to get me roles and they were all helpful,” Binoe said. Si Deo ang kanyang tumayong manager noong siya ay nag-uumpisa pa lang sa showbiz and throughout his rise to superstardom. Noong 1984 raw nang sabihin niya kay Deo na gusto niyang maging isang artista. Deo said, “Hindi ka puwedeng mag-artista. Hindi ka mestiso.” Sagot daw niya, “P’wede naman akong maging kontrabida.”

Binoe worked in Regal as a stuntman where he played double for several actors. He was also on the television show Pinoy Thriller. Napanood si Binoe sa mga pelikula gaya ng Bagets Gang, Public Enemy No. 2, Alega Gang, Delima Gang, Hindi Pahuhuli ng Buhay at Carnap King. But the real push to superstardom came with Anak ni Baby Ama and the rest they say is cinema history.

Marunong tumanaw ng utang na loob si Binoe and he is forever indebted to Senator Jinggoy Estrada, Senator Bong Revilla, Eddie Garcia, Edu Manzano, Fernando Poe Jr., former President Joseph Estrada, Vic del Rosario, Mother Lily, among the many others who have helped him in his career.

Sinasabing ang buhay ay parang isang gulong – kung minsan ikaw ay nasa itaas, kung minsan naman ikaw ay nasa ilalim. One of the most harrowing episodes in his life was when he entered prison. He was sentenced to 21 years for illegal possession of firearms. He served three years and a half but in 1998 siya ay nakatanggap ng presidential pardon mula kay da-ting President Fidel V. Ramos. Binoe was a freeman and ready to face the world. And he was successful in his comeback to the career he left behind.

Binoe is so in-love with his wife Mariel Rodriguez. He appreciates it that Mariel begins and ends her day by thinking about his welfare.

Ngayon ay napapanood si Binoe sa primetime teleserye na Guns and Roses opposite Bea Alonzo. Sabi niya, “She will make you feel that she is in love with you. ‘Pag sigaw ng direktor ng ‘cut’ alis agad, wala na.”

Walang duda, Robin will remain a superstar in the hearts and minds of the Filipinos.

Kaibigan, usap tayo muli!

  1. TUMAHIMIK NA LANG KAYO MGA GUNG2!! mukha kayong malinis pero mas madumi pa kayo kay robin! tingnan niya muna ang sarili at buhay ninyo..before kayo manira nang ibang tao..
    GETS NINYO!!! just zipper your mouth!! OK??

  2. shebie and dogie_d..the nonsense tandem!..go ahead..i would love to read your dictionary that starts with the letter “R”

  3. humirit ka na naman kalbong bakla kah! so, ur point being? mga kapatid niya na wife beaters. aahon din sa pagiging wife beaters? magparetoke ka nga muna ng mukha mo bakla. naipit yata yang face mu sa pwerta habang pinapanganak ka. hahahahaha

  4. @ROCHELLE – ikaw naman bading na bading ang dating mo, cge gawa ako dictionary the first word on the dictionary is your name ROCHELLE – meaning nonsense, idiot, baloney, nincompoop, dumb head………..need i say more?

  5. Hindi ba si Rosanna Roces, talent din ni Boy Abunda, pero inilaglag niya. I agree with Tum. Pera pera lang. Looks like he can’t find a gold mine in Rosanna kaya abandoned na.

  6. SHEBIE..habang tumatagal, lalong lumalala mga pinagsasabi mo..gumawa ka na lang kaya ng dictionary na punung-puno ng immoral words mo..grabeee!!…parang tambay lang ahhh?!.

  7. TUMBA..wala kang magagawa trabaho nya yan ehh..kung isaw kaya nasa posisyon nya..ilalaglagmo ba sarili mong artista? ganyan talaga sa showbiz..trabaho lang walang personalan

  8. Sorry to burst your bubbles, Abunda, pero ang ibang cast nang Guns and Roses ang pinapanood ko, hindi si Robin. Medyo nauumay na nga ako sa acting niya. Masyado pang violent. Pumapatay nang tao na parang manok. This is not the type of scene that we want to instill in our children’s mind. Is there some kind of censorcship for these type ? Pero kasi, si Robin, ito lang ang alam niyang gawin.

  9. wag nmn kau manghusga agAd….kc bka yang mgA cnsvi nyo bumalik s inyo.. tumahimik n lng kau kung anu naba2sa nyo….. wag n kau mgcomment against s kanila…

  10. Boy Abunda, kailangan mo lang palaparin ang papel ni Robin dahil kay Mariel. Your ward needs all the damage control and publicity she can get. Pera pera lang. Your commission and talent fee is at stake. Iwasan lang manapak at makasagasa. Last year was really bad for these two. TUM movie, anong nangyari ?

  11. Padilla men, family of wife beaters, abusers, drug users, boosers, gun toters, walang respeto sa babae at ngayon naman, isang may kasong homicide. Wala na bang matinong lalake sa pamilya ni Robin ? Kawawang Mariel. Sabagay, bagay naman ang ugali ni Mariel sa napiling hubby. Kawawang Mariel.

  12. Super hahahahaha nmn ako sa comment mo shebie bout bea. but its true, nag subside na ang kasikatan ni robin padilla. wala man ingay sa rating ang  “toy guns and vietnam roses” nya ( courtesy of shebie) hahahaha again. 

  13. MATAMLAY NA ANG CAREER NI GOOD BOY LALO NA NGAYON NA DI NAMAN MAGANDA ANG RATINGS NG “TOY GUNS AND VIETNAM ROSES”. PARA KASING BABY WHALE SI BEA SA LAKI EH
