Kim Chiu, Xian Lim Movie Underway

In the midst of the controversy between friends Maja Salvador and Kim Chiu, it must be said that life goes on - as do their careers, of course.

While the series that stars both young ladies, "Ina, Kapatid, Anak," is enjoying a good run, perhaps partly buoyed by the real-life issue between the two, Kim's love team with Xian Lim is still pretty much on good track.

"We have a movie," Xian tells Bulletin Entertainment when we caught up with him at a recent cover shoot for a health magazine on Sunday. "Wala pang title eh," he says of his first big screen appearance with his perennial leading lady, adding, "we're shooting (already)."

Although Xian admits that he's not averse to trying out other things - for instance, the possibility of doing indie films in the future ("oo naman, I'm open to those things, very open") - their big screen project is bound to be a much-awaited affair for the solid fan base of the KimXi love team.

In the past few weeks, reports have been replete with accounts of how Xian and Kim spent Valentine's Day together. As a blushing Kim recounted in previous interviews, she and her family went to Subic.

"Akala ko mangangabayo lang kami ng mga kapatid ko, and then si Xian... siya ang taong full of surprises," she related.

"Nag-Subic din siya, sabi niya may shoot din siya doon," she had said of Xian, who later invited them to come over to Subic Yacht Club.

When they got there, "May pa-yate si kuya. Nagulat naman kami, sabi ko, 'Ano ba 'yan!'... Tapos 'yon, nag-ikot kami doon for three hours..."

Now that summer is around the corner, Xian himself has hopes of enjoying a bit of downtime from work. In keeping with the "water theme" of his surprise to Kim, he notes, "Siyempre, (ang plano ko) definitely beach."

He adds, "I want to try out water sports. Wala lang, mga jet skiing, parasailing, scuba diving... hopefully I could (do them)."

He didn't clarify, though, if Kim figures in his summer plans, but as the media has come to know Xian, he does have a knack for surprising his special lady so, to most, should he spend time with Kim in a grand summer vacation, it would not come as a surprise.

Asked if he feels the need to clarify, once and for all, the real score of his relationship with Kim, Xian replies, "If it's not needed, why... what they see is what they get. No need to elaborate..."

While he is also counting on doing more projects with Kim, whom he has described as someone very special to him in the past interviews, he says he is not discounting oppotunities of doing work with other screen partners. "I'm open to any work given to me as long as it's a good role."

Asked if future projects need to always be done with Kim, he says, "Not necessarily. Wala naman akong pipiliin na, 'I won't do this'... as long as it's quality, it's bagay sa akin, I like it... I'll do it."

For now, though, the KimXi tandem appears solid as a rock.
