Newly-elect Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-Aawit (OPM) vice president for special projects, Christian Bautista, is currently busy learning “Bahasa,” the official language of Indonesia.
According to the singer-model-actor, this is in preparation for an Indonesian movie set to be shot later this year.
"Siguro mga 60% to 70% sure na siya pero hindi pa din talaga sure until makita ko ang final contract. Kung mag-OK ang contract, workshop starts October, and November ang shoot. Ang shoot ay one month and half," said he in a recent press conference for the perfume brand, Blackwater.
Bautista said the film is supposed to be “inspirational.”
"Basically ang synopsis ay music teacher ako dito sa Philippines na pupunta ng Indonesia at doon na magkakaroon ng istorya," He divulged.
But Bautista is doing more than learning Bahasa to further prepare for the role.
"I'm doing different kind of workshops. Getting ready for acting," Bautista enthused proudly.
Early this year, Bautista announced that he would be doing a TV series in the same country.
It was cancelled eventually, with Bautista citing “scheduling conflicts” among the major setbacks.
"Kasi three months na mawawala, masyadong matagal. I have to take care of my career here in the Philippines,” he explained.
