Maituturing nang isang Kapamilya si Aljur Abrenica.
Ngayong hapon ng Lunes, July 31, opisyal nang sinalubong si Aljur ng ABS-CBN executives na sina Cory Vidanes (Chief Operating Officer), Laurenti Dyogi (business unit head), at Deo Endrinal (Dreamscape production head).
Ayon sa post ng ABS-CBN publicist na si Eric John Salut, magkakaroon na ng show si Aljur sa Kapamilya network at nailatag na rin daw ang iba pang programa para sa former GMA-7 actor.
Sa ngayon, wala pa raw pinipirmahang kontrata ang 27-year-old actor.
Nitong Marso lamang nag-expire ang kontrata ni Aljur sa GMA Network, kung saan siya nadiskubre nang hirangin siya bilang Ultimate Hunk sa fourth season ng StarStruck noong 2006.
Ilang linggo na ang nakalilipas ay namataan din si Aljur sa compound ng ABS-CBN, kaya naman malakas ang usap-usapang lilipat na ito ng home network.
The Reason behind his transfer:
In a report with Inquirer last July 24, 2014, Actor Aljur Abrenica wants to break free.
The 24-year-old actor at that time and model petitioned the Quezon City Hall of Justice to end his contract with GMA-7.
A report from the Philippine Entertainment Portal website said that Abrenica cited in his complaint that his career plans did not jibe with the network’s plans.
His contract with GMA ended in March 2017.
The actor-model was with his legal counsel, Ferdinand Topacio, who was hoping for a “fruitful dialogue” with the television network.
Abrenica said he has not received offers from other networks, but the Kapuso actor said he wants to pursue other things that are not in the plans of GMA.
“[My career] is no longer aligned with their plans for me and the plans I envision for myself,” he said.
A report from news tabloid Bandera also detailed Abrenica’s complaints against the network.
“Meron kasi akong timeline para sa aking career. I note down the things na gusto kong gawin – movies, TV shows, recording, concerts. Lahat iyan ay nakaayos sa listahan ko kaya lang iba naman ang nasa isipan nila. They want to package me otherwise.
(I have a timeline for my career. I note down the things that I want to do—movies, TV shows, recording, concerts. All of those are on my list, but they are thinking of something else.)
“Like yung title ng album ko – gusto nila yung bastos na title na ni sa panaginip ay hindi ko ma-imagine. Para akong bold actor sa tingin nila. Saan ka nakakita ng manager na ang gustong title ng album ko ay ‘Nota’?
(Like the title of my album—they want something crude that I won’t imagine even in my dreams. They regard me as a bold actor. Where will you find a manager who wants my album title to be ‘Nota?’)
Abrenica was one of the winners of GMA-7’selebrity-search show “Starstruck Season 4” in 2006.
