Angelica Panganiban calls out illegal downloads of 'That Thing Called Tadhana'

A scene from "That Thing Called Tadhana" starring Angelica Panganiban and JM de Guzman

Angelica Panganiban frowns on illegal downloads and pirated CDs of her movie, “That Thing Called Tadhana.”

She took to Twitter to post screenshots of people who watched the currently-showing movie online or through pirated CDs. These people even tagged Angelica and co-star JM de Guzman in their social media accounts.

She told her followers that piracy can cost celebrities their job.

Evils of piracy

“Gusto kaya nila wala ng gawing pelikula ang mga artista? Dahil mawawalan na kami ng trabaho sa pag suporta nila sa piracy.. Kahit kailan d nyo na makikita sa pelikula ang mga idols nyo.. :( mga kinakikiligan nyo? Kasi wala kayong respeto sa trabaho nila.”

She asked for respect and support for the industry.

“Respeto lang po sana pare parehas tayong Pilipino.. Pero naghahatakan tayo pababa.. Nakakalungkot to.. Grabe.”

Some of those who posted screenshots of the movie immediately untagged Angelica after she called out on them.

Tough journey as Mace

“Aba!!! Mabibilis ang mga kilos at galaw nila!!! Super tanggal sila ng pag tag sakin sa IG! hahahaha! Kayo na,” she posted.

Her performance in “That Thing Called Tadhana” earned Angelica a Best Actress award from the Cinema One Originals Film Festival. She followed it up with the same award, this time from Gawad Tanglaw last Thursday, February 19.

Angelica posted her journey while playing her character Mace.

“Thank you #gawadtanglaw naaalala ko tuloy yung journey ni Mace.. Iniisip ko bago ako mag shooting, pano ko mag move on?? Eh ang saya saya ng personal kong buhay.. San ko hahanapin si Mace? Naaalala ko yung first night ko bago mag shooting.. D ako makatulog.. Paulit ulit ko lang binabasa yung script. Nag lalagay ng notes.. Basta, aral lang ako ng aral.. Ganun lagi yung nangyayari kapag may shooting kami kinabukasan.. Pero pinaka matindi siguro yung last day namin. Kabadong kabado ako sa monologue ko.. Para kong nasusuka, nahihilo ako. Dahil siguro buong araw na kong nasasaktan kay Mace.. (That girl!!! 😂) hindi ko pinapansin masyado si jm. Akala yata nilang lahat may attitude ako sa last day namin 😊 pati ang tunay na anthony ng buhay ko, d ko pinapansin.. Hanggang sa natapos namin yung eksena. 12 pages yun direk!@tonet_jadaone hanggang ngayon, bumabaligtad sikmura ko pag naalala ko yung gabing yun. But that particular scene, made me said (sic) yes to be Mace Castillo. I love you Mace!! Mahal ka ng lahat ng babaeng minsan ng naging tanga. 😘 til we meet again tyang Mace.”
