Piolo Pascual also agreed to be part of the movie despite his busy schedule and felt truly honored to work with Ate Vi, she would drive from Bataan to Batangas to shot this film. 

Also featured in Vilma's milestone movie is the special participation of Richard 'Ser Chief Yap, Marian Rivera, and Piolo Pascual.
