Journalist Bernadette Sembrano interviewed one of the most popular comedians in the country, Romy “Dagul: Pastrana, and talked about the latter’s current situation amid his semi-retire life from showbiz.
During the interview with Sembrano, Dagul said that one of his dreams was to see his daughter Jkhriez follow in his footsteps.
According to him, his time had already passed, and he wanted his daughter to see the beauty of showbusiness.
“Sa totoo lang, pag may mga kausap ako na artista, producer, sinasabi ko na ‘yan ‘pwede po tulungan niyo ang anak ko?’ kasi ako pawala na, kaya gusto ko na masaksihan niya kahit wala [na] ko, ipagpatuloy niya,” said Dagul.
“Palaos na ako eh, tulad niyan hindi na ako nakakalakad, hindi makatakbo, so ang role ko talagang limitado lang, so na-belong ka na sa laos,” he added.
However, Jkhriez insisted that her father was still popular, especially on social media.
“Lagi niyang sinasabi na laos siya, pero maraming tao na nakatingala sa kanya,” she said.
“Legacy ka parin sa mata ng tao,” she added.
Jkhriez also shared that she encouraged her father to create content on social media because many fans were missing him after leaving his last show, ‘Goin’ Bulilit’ in 2019.
