MANILA -- For host-actress Mariel Rodriguez, her nephew, teen star Daniel Padilla, is the Robin Padilla of this generation.

"I think it's the charisma that they have. 'Yun ang namana niya, 'yun ang Padilla sa kanya. Kasi when I look at him ang kamukha niya talaga si Karla Estrada. Pero ang dating niya yun ang Padilla," Rodriguez, who is married to Robin, said in an interview on ANC's "Headstart" on Thursday.

"'Yung charisma, the Padillas really have that. So si Daniel, lucky enough na gising na gising siya nung nag-shower ng Padilla charm," she added.

Padilla is currently promoting the movie "Sa Ngalan ng Ama, Ina at mga Anak," which stars both Robin and Daniel Padilla.

In the movie, Robin takes the backseat for his nephew, who stars in the ABS-CBN hit series "Got To Believe."

"Actually si Robin he's always like that -- para sa mga bata ito, ibigay niyo ang magagandang eksena, sa mga bata na 'yan," Rodriguez said.

"Sa Ngalan ng Ama, Ina at mga Anak" will hit theaters on January 29.
