    Sharon Cuneta has never been busier.

    The megastar revealed getting several offers for movies, during the birthday celebration thrown by her home network, ABS-CBN, on January 7. The megastar marked her 54th birthday on January 6.

    Sharon revealed that when she talked about slowing down and retiring, she was surprised to get as many as seven movie offers, including from Star Cinema and Viva Films. On TV, she will be back as part of the jury in the ABS-CBN talent show, “Your Face Sounds Familiar.” She is also bringing her “Iconic” concert with Regine Velasquez abroad.

    The singer-actress also expressed her wish that President Duterte reconsider his pronouncement on ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal.

    “I hope he reconsiders his decision about ABS-CBN not just because I just renewed [my contract]. I can always find a job,” she said. “Everybody I grew up with here, who have remained loyal to the station and have grown up here having learned from the school of hard knocks here have become family and good friends, will lose almost everything they’ve built over the years.

    “I hope in my heart that our dear President reconsiders the thousands and thousands of employees who have grown up here, learned the ropes here, and that includes me,” she added.
