Nadine Lustre takes on the demanding role of Maya, the young woman alternately fascinated and fearful of rainfall in the latest film offering from Viva Films, Ulan.
Written and directed by Irene Villamor, who earlier achieved critical and commercial success with ‘Sid and Aya: Not A Love Story’ and ‘Meet Me in St. Gallen’, Ulan marks Nadine’s first acting venture without her usual screen partner James Reid.
Nadine is a popular singer, (No Erase, Me And You, Bahala Na, Hanap-hanap) and actress, (Diary ng Panget, Never Not Love You, On The Wings of Love) who has also ventured into directing music videos, (The Life, Summer). She puts her successful box-office reputation on the line and essays her most demanding role to date in Ulan.
Maya grew up believing that the rain, in its various forms has a massive effect on her life. She remains fearful that rainstorms can result in tragedy and yet is eagerly expectant of the romantic emotions that can come with a sweet kiss under the raindrops. How fate brings these about is the story told in Ulan.
Ulan also stars Carlo Aquino, Marco Gumabao, AJ Muhlach, Joseph Elizalde, Ella Illano, and Perla Bautista. The movie opens on March 13 in cinemas nationwide.
