Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, October 11) — After making a successful comeback in Star Cinema's latest movie offering, "Seven Sundays," award-winning actor Aga Muhlach said he wants to do more projects.

In an interview with CNN Philippines, the 48-year-old actor said during his five-year hiatus from showbiz, he had been receiving scripts from independent filmmakers, but some of the roles did not quite fit. 

"I'm open to do it, I'm just waiting for the right project," he said, adding timing is crucial.

Muhlach also shared there is one story he would like to produce.

"The script is with me. I will produce it but when? I don't know yet. It's a story of two boys or two guys," he shared.

The actor did not further discuss details and only said it is a project his supporters and fans should watch out for.

First-ever teleserye 

Muhlach, whose career spans more than two decades, first appeared as a child actor in 1975.  He has won numerous awards and worked with veteran actors like the late Fernando Poe Jr. and Christopher De Leon.

Muhlach also starred in several romantic-comedy films and dramas alongside popular female celebrities of his generation.

The list includes Tony award-winning performer Lea Salonga, Megastar Sharon Cuneta, Kapamilya  star Claudine Barretto, Mikee Cojuangco, Angel Locsin and even wife Charlene Gonzalez.

"When they watch my film they are part of the experience. They are part of my joy so they feel that also. When I'm in love they feel that too. When I'm hurt in the film they feel it also. " he said. 

Muhlach said he is also exploring the possibility of doing his first-ever teleserye.

"I've never done a soap opera. Although I would like to experience to do just one soap, but mahal ko talaga paggawa ng pelikula (but I love doing films)," he said.

The actor said he will give it a shot if blockbuster director Cathy Garcia-Molina will take the lead. The seasoned director said while she is grateful for the trust, the project is a remote possibility because she will retire in two years and has two more movie projects with Star Cinema.
