Robin Padilla: Ali helped me accept BB Gandanghari-A A +A
Saturday, November 2, 2013
ACTION star Robin Padilla said that his youngest son, Ali, helped him understand his brother BB Gandanghari.
In a recent television interview, the actor shared that the hospitalization of BB due to a viral infection last July opened the door for reconciliation.
Robin said he was explaining to Ali the decisions made by his brother, with regard to his gender preference, when his son's response struck him.
"In-explain ko (sa kanya) kung ano yung Tita BB niya. Isa lang ang sinabi niya sa akin, 'It's just respect, Pa," Robin said.
"Na-realized ko na, oo nga, parang hindi ko na nire-respeto yung kapatid ko. Umalis na ako dun sa morality in religion. Nawala na ako doon. Para sa akin ang morality natin ngayon is equality," he added.
To recall, Robin finally acknowledge BB when he called him "my sister." He also posted a photo of Ali and BB and accompanied it with caption: "My son Ali showing his boxing moves to my sister BB Gandanghari who used to be my brother Rustom who beats me up when we were young 'she is so weak because of a very serious infection but her right cross is still as fast as before' my son was surprised and amazed (sic)."
Robin also hinted that BB is now included in the upcoming flick "Kuratong Baleleng," featuring the Padilla actors in show business.
"Nag aerial jujitsu (siya). Nung ginawa niya yun ang sabi ko, 'wow 'tol, magre-retire na akong action star. Ikaw na ngayon ang bagong action star," he ended. (Sunnex)
