PNP Director General Ronald Dela Rosa will have a role in an upcoming indie advocacy movie “Isang Araw: Ikatlong Yugto” which will premiere mid-December of this year.
In an Instagram post by UNTV host Arlene Razon (@soitsyou), Gen. Bato is seen back to back with her husband, the movie’s lead character and director and UNTV’s main anchor Daniel Razon, in a photo with a caption “Shooting w/ Gen. Bato”.
Isang Araw: Ikatlong Yugto is the latest in a one-of-a-kind advocacy movie conceptualized by UNTV’s Razon, who is known by the monicker “Kuya Daniel” and “Mr. Public Service”.
Incidentally, Kuya Daniel’s UNTV is also in partnership with Gen. Dela Rosa and the Philippine National Police in delivering much-needed and well-rounded rehabilitation to surrendering drug addicts through the “Baraks Ni Good Brother” program, which includes livelihood programs and spiritual guidance. A portion of the proceeds from the movie will go to the funding of this joint project.
Daniel Razon stars in the trilogy as an ex-soldier turned jeepney driver who’s out to always do good to everyone despite his travails in life. In his quest to atone for his sins by doing good to all, he has faced society’s evils head on. The movie’s resounding motto, “doing good will never cause evil”, is reminiscent of an actual advocacy “Kahit Isang Araw Lang” which was also initiated by Razon.
The movie, despite its low-profile appeal, is not short of star power as veteran actors and actresses such as Rey “PJ” Abellana, Lara Quigaman, Wendell Ramos, Gina Pareño, Bayani Agbayani, Jess Lapid and no other than the Superstar herself, Nora Aunor, will be in the said movie.
Other big-named artists such as Jacky Lou Blanco, Ritz Azul, Emilio Garcia, Pinky Amador, Jeffrey Santos, Daria Ramirez and Arnel Ignacio also appeared in the first two installments of the movie.
It remains to be seen what PDGen. Dela Rosa’s participation in the trilogy is, but it will definitely be a big first for the Philippine National Police to have its Chief star in the Big Screen.
