Teen idols Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla (KathNiel) will be part of the upcoming Star Cinema and Viva Films 38th Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF 2012) entry Sisteraka starring Kris Aquino and Vice Ganda.
The great news was confirmed by Sisteraka lead herself, Kris Aquino on her talk show Kris TV Monday morning.
This MMFF 2012 entry will be the first time that Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla will be paired up for a movie project. KathNiel, as what their love team is called, had been successfully partnered in television shows such as the teen series Growing Up and the now hit Royal teleserye Princess and I.
Surely, KathNiel fans will be delighted with this news, saving all their money just to buy a ticket for Christmas Day's showing of Sisteraka.
Sisteraka (although the title is subject to change) will mark Daniel Padilla's first big screen project while this will be Kathryn's 2nd consecutive time to star in an MMFF entry. She was part of Shake Rattle and Roll 13 last year.
It seems like Kris is fond of the KathNiel love team. In Kris' teleserye Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw, Daniel Padilla was made to play the young Robin Padilla while Kathryn was also requested to play Kris' younger version but the role was rumored to be played by another teen actress.
