    Joshua Garcia swears there’s nothing special going on between him and his “The Killer Bride” leading lady, Janella Salvador.

    “Mabait kasi si Janella,” said Joshua. “At saka ang sarap na magkaroon ka ng friend na babae, na anytime you want to talk with – just friendly talk – mas madali kung puwedeng tatawagan.”

    Joshua would not want to comment on the report that Janella is in a relationship with another Kapamilya star, Markus Paterson. Janella also does not ask him what happened between him and Julia Barretto, his leading lady in “Block Z.”

    Speaking of Markus, he plays the leading man of Teresa Loyzaga in this Saturday’s episode of the popular drama anthology, “Maalaala Mo Kaya” (MMK).

    “No doubt na bagay sila ni Janella, although, as an avid fan of Joshua, gusto ko sila ni Janella.”
