MANILA, Philippines – Following the phenomenal success of the blockbuster comedy film “Sisterakas,” television host and actress Kris Aquino said she now wants to do a family drama for her next project.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News last week, Aquino said she wants to work with actress Dawn Zulueta in her next show.

“On my way here, I got a sweet text from Dawn Zulueta. Kakanood lang daw niya ng ‘Sisterakas’ sa Rockwell tapos nagko-congratulate siya. Sinabi ko iyon kay Deo (Endrinal, Aquino’s manager) na mag-produce tayo ng parang mature drama about women na sana si Dawn ang kasama ko,” she said.

Saying she will be willing to spend for it, Aquino is hoping that her manager would grant her request.

“Kasi parang we’re forgetting na 'yung babae na may disposable income na gusto manood ng movie, nasa age bracket namin [ni Dawn]. So sayang eh. Sabi ko kay Deo, sana payagan niya,” she said.

Aside from a new drama project, Aquino said she also wants to try doing an independent film.

“Gusto ko pero mayroon akong tatlong direktor lang na gusto. Ayaw ko na mag-name names. Aawayin na naman ako. Pero kung mag-i-indie ako, silang tatlo talaga ang gusto kong makatrabaho,” she said.

The TV host, however, said her manager would probably not allow her to do an independent film.

Currently, Aquino is gearing up for the release of her upcoming series “Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw.” She has also began taping for the next season of “Pilipinas Got Talent.”

Aquino also regularly appears on her ABS-CBN morning show “KrisTV.”
