KAPAMILYA stars Bela Padilla and JC Santos are paired for the first time in “100 Tula Para Kay Stella,” one of the official entries of “Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino” (PPP) which will hit Philippine cinemas from August 16 to 22.

The story is about lovestruck Fidel (Santos) who writes 100 poems for his college crush, Stella played by Padilla.

Santos posted on his Instagram account (@j.c.santos), “Makikilala niyo na ang mga sundalo ng pag-ibig sa #100TulaParaKayStella! Mula sa direksyon ni Jason Paul Laxamana! Opens August 16 in Cinemas nationwide!”

Another Instagram post by Santos reads: “What if naging best friend mo yung crush mo? Sasabihin mo ba?#100TulaParaKayStella.”

”100 Tula Para Kay Stella” is the first big-screen lead role of Santos, a theater actor, after he became part of the 2016 primetime soap, “Til I Met You” topbilled by popular loveteam and real-life sweethearts James Reid and Nadine Lustre.

Viva Films’ Facebook page which posted the official trailer of the movie stated, “Sapat ba ang isang daang tula para paibigin ang isang tao? Alamin ang kwento nina Fidel at Stella sa #100TulaParaKayStella!”
