Did you know that Maja Salvador was the original choice to star in the 2019 movie Isa Pa, With Feelings?

Isa Pa, With Feelings was top-billed by Maine Mendoza and Carlo Aquino and was shown in cinemas in October 2019. 

The film revolved around Mara (Maine), a frustrated architect who falls in love with her deaf next-door neighbor and sign-language instructor Gali (Carlo).

In an interview with reporters at a product endorsement event on February 1, Maja was asked about the possibility of doing a project with her ex-boyfriend Gerald Anderson.

The 31-year-old actress then revealed that she and Gerald were supposed to star Isa Pa, With Feelings.

Maja disclosed, "Una kasi, tinanggap ko 'yon, una wth JC Santos, then hindi pwede si JC.

"Tapos biglang Gerald daw, then okay lang din ako, hanggang hindi nag-push through yung project."

Maja said that she is still willing to do a project with her ex-boyfriend Gerald "as long as maganda yung script."

She explained, "Oo, actually nirequest ko 'yon na mamatay.

"'Yon pala, isa din sa gustong mangyari ng writers and ng creatives.

"Kasi mas gusto namin realidad, ganun yung pupuntahan."

As for Maja's next project, the Kapamilya actress said that a movie has already been pitched to her.
