MANILA -– Following the devastation brought about by super typhoon “Yolanda,” comedienne Pokwang believes it is time for Filipinos to laugh again.

 

Pokwang said she hopes her upcoming comedy “Call Center Girl” can boost the Filipino spirit after the typhoon battered the Visayas and left thousands of people dead.

“It’s about time na ngumiti naman po tayo sa mga nangyayari ngayon sa atin. Naiintinidihan naman po namin na may pinagdadaanan ang bansa natin pero ang pelikulang ito, nawa’y muling maghatid ng ngiti sa mga Pilipino,” she said.

More than just a comedy, Pokwang said the story of “Call Center Girl” also offers a moral lesson for the Filipino family.

In the movie, Pokwang plays a call center agent who is still adjusting to her job. She chooses to endure the attitude of her mean team leader, played by Enchong Dee, for the sake of keeping her family whole.

“Isa akong dating OFW. Napalayo ako sa mga anak ko and then 'yung bunso ko, siya 'yung medyo lumayo ang loob sa akin. Pagbalik ko dito, gusto kong mabuo ulit ang pamilya ko kaya pinasok ko ang call center,” she said.

Produced by Star Cinema as part of the 20th anniversary line-up of the ABS-CBN film production outfit, “Call Center Girl” also stars Jessy Mendiola, Jestoni Alarcon, Pooh, Ogie Diaz, K Broses and John Lapus.

“Binigay ko na ng todo lahat dito. I’m sure mamahalin nila ang pelikulang ito kasi maganda ang kuwento. Yung director namin napakahusay. Proud ako dito,” Pokwang said.

“Call Center Girl” is set to hit the theaters nationwide on November 27.
