In the video, Ian Heaven planted a kiss on the forehead, which didn’t go over well with many netizens as the actress was beaten up.
Based on the Inquirer article, Ian Veneracion said in a recent interview that he wonders why his leading lady was slammed for this viral video. “Ang Daming Nagalit. Ang Daming Natuwa. Ang Daming Kinig. Sabi ko nga, Bakit Gano’n? Ikaw ‘yung 22 years old, ikaw ‘yung babae, bakit parang ako ‘yung biktima?” he said.
Heaven said she saw this on TikTok and she and Ian just did their version. To them it was not malice at all. Ian asked if there was a “bastos” factor in the video as Heave looked at him and he kissed her on the forehead.
Then the actor shared what a woman said to him. “May babae na nagsabi sa akin, ‘Ksi babae kami. Alam namin ‘yung mga ganoong tingin ni Heaven’,” he shared.
On the positive side, Ian Veneracion said both negative and positive reactions contributed to the engagements. This has piqued the curiosity of many people and he hopes the public will be curious about their film.
Meanwhile, Heaven said she was initially reluctant to do this film and planned to turn it down. Finally, after compromising on some scenes, and with her mother’s permission, the actress said yes.
