MANILA, Philippines – Actor Bernard Palanca is now ready to stage his showbiz comeback after stepping out of the limelight for quite a while.

Last week, Palanca reunited with the other members of the group The Hunks as the ABS-CBN concert variety show “ASAP” celebrated its 18th anniversary.

In an interview with “The Buzz” aired on Sunday, Palanca said he is now ready to take on new roles that the ABS-CBN management would give him.

He also explained why he left showbiz years back.

“Not naman sawa but I just got tired at one point kasi nga it was kinda hard dealing with all the negativity. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, assumption, whatever else they want to think. I do what I do, I accept everything eh. Whether or not I do something good or bad, I accept anything after that,” he said.

Palanca said it was his personal choice to take a breather.

“I did that personally. I reinvented myself. I come back now more refreshed. I got burnt out prior eh. It was a decision I had to do,” he said.

Meanwhile, the actor denied that his former partner Meryl Soriano is preventing him to see their child.

“No, not at all because I was with my son. There was never a time that I couldn't see him. In fact, I was with him yesterday so none of that is true,” he said.

Soriano and Palanca tied the knot on September 8, 2006 in a civil ceremony held in San Juan City. Their marriage, however, lasted for five months only.

Palanca maintained that he and his estranged wife remain friends.
