Award-winning actor Jiro Manio said he has yet to close the doors completely for his return to show business.
In his interview with ‘Fast Talk with Boy Abunda,’ Jiro admitted that his doctors didn’t recommend him to do intensive roles as it might affect his rehabilitation.
“Baka raw po maging effect ng stress ko, magkasakit daw po ako ulit, dahil hanggang ngayon po nagta-take po ako ng medicine,” said Jiro.
“Atsaka marami pinagbawal sa’kin. Bawal po ako mapuyat, bawal po akong masyadong magalit, ‘yung mga substance, mga ganun,” he added.
However, Jiro said he may accept roles that will not force him to work long hours.
“Pinipili ko po sa ngayon ‘yung mga tinatanggap kong [roles]. Hindi na po katulad dati, ‘yung babad talaga ako sa TV,” he stated.
It can be recalled that Jiro made his first public appearance when Julius Babao interviewed him to check his condition at the rehabilitation center.
He also went viral last December after selling his Gawad Urian Best Actor trophy for P75,000.
He used the money to celebrate Christmas and New Year with his family.
