Not a few were surprised to learn that action star Robin Padilla is now hosting an agricultural show on NET 25, “Unlad Kaagapay sa Hanapbuhay”, which had its pilot episode last Sunday, July 26, 7 p.m.
The action star shared photos of his brother Rommel Padilla’s farm in Nueva Ecija and praised Rommel’s decision to go into farming, as seen in Robin’s Instagram post on July 23, reshared from Rommel’s page.
“Inilalakad ang kanyang sinasalita! Saludo ako sa iyo kuya rommel!!! kayat mga kamaglulupa sumunod na tayo sa napakalaking hakbang ni kuya omeng wag na tayo umasa sa kilos ng iba!” he said.
(He’s walking the talk. I salute you, brother Rommel. Fellow farmers, please follow my brother’s huge step. Let’s not wait on others to move.)
Robin added, “Tayo na ang gumawa at hayaan nating sumunod ang tunay na masisipag at nag iisip na bumalik sa pagiging maglulupa at magsimulang magtanim para sa ating pansariling kaligtasan sa paparoonan ng mundo sa digmaan laban sa covid 19. Ito ang oras para maging magsasaka. Balik Probinsya na Tayo!”
(Let’s be the ones to take action and let the really industrious ones follow, including those who are thinking of returning to farming, those starting to plant for their safety, regardless of where the world is headed in the fight against COVID-19. This is the time to be a farmer. Let’s return to the province.”
Robin, who saw his action stardom peak in the 1990s, earned the nickname “Bad Boy of Philippine cinema.” He later transitioned to a TV career, starring in various prime time TV series and talent shows. JB
