Edu Manzano celebrated Heneral Luna’s Netflix debut by roasting John Arcilla

In case you haven’t heard, our very own Heneral Luna just debuted on Netflix.

While this is a huge honor for the Filipino film industry as a whole, it’s an even bigger one for John Arcilla, seeing as this is the actor’s third flick to be picked up by the streaming service, following Metro Manila and Birdshot.

While people poured their admiration for the epic achievement, it was Edu Manzano’s memorable tribute that had us ROFL.

Edu recently posted a BTS vid which sees him rehearsing his lines with the acclaimed actor while on the set of ‘Ang Probinsyano’, where he plays the villainous Lucas Cabrera.

Edu initially seemed at awe at John for having three films on Netflix, but that admiration quickly turned into ridicule when the latter flubbed his line, prompting the former to jokingly shout ‘Yan ba yung may tatlong pelikula sa Netflix? Tawagin niyo ako pag ready na siya’, garnering laughs from the entire crew.


The vid is actually a part of Edu Manzano’s hilarious running gag on ‘Ang Probinsyano’, which sees him strutting around the set as if he’s the best actor to ever walk the planet.

We can only imagine his antics will get infinitely funnier should one of his films land a spot on Netflix.
