MANILA, Philippines - Reel and real life sweethearts Melisa "Melai" Cantiveros and Jason Francisco said they are hoping to have a new movie soon.

They are also praying for the nonstop support of their fans.

"Sana sa mga susunod pa naming gagawin kagaya nitong pelikulang ito sana ay suportahan niyo po kami at huwag kayong magbago sa amin," Francisco said.

"Sana magtuloy-tuloy ang suporta niyo sa amin para masaya tayo," Cantiveros added.

The couple made the statement after the successful premiere of their first movie together, "The Adventures of Pureza: The Queen of Riles", last Tuesday.

Kapamilya stars like the hosts of "Happy Yipee Yehey" were there to show support to their co-hosts.

What made the premiere special was the presence of Francisco's idol, action star Robin Padilla.

"Si Jason sobrang idol si Robin. So the whole time, sabi ko pupunta kami. Laging sabi niya, 'Si Idol, si Idol pupunta?' Tapos ang pangalan pa ni Jason dito si pelikula is Ruben Padilla," Mariel Rodriguez, one of the hosts of "Happy Yipee Yehey" and wife of Padilla, said.

"Ang galing nila. Dapat nating suportahan ang mga bagong artista para lalong ang pelikulang Pilipino ay dumami pa. Mga kapamilya, panoorin niyo ang pelikulang ito para kayo ay ngumiti," Padilla said.
