Aga Muhlach devastated by dad’s death

By Boy Villasanta 

Alvaro Muhlach, also known as Cheng Muhlach, a former matinee idol died of cardiac arrest a couple of days ago at the St. Luke’s Medical Center in E. Rodriguez Avenue in Quezon City. He was 71. 

Cheng’s son, award-winning actor Aga Muhlach is most devastated by his dad’s death that he isn’t able to fully concentrate on his showbiz works and had to cancel most of them to attend to his father’s memorial services. 

The departed had been an actor and producer right after his elder sister movie queen Amalia Fuentes was the toast of the tinsel town in the 50s, 60s and 70s. During Amalia’s reign as one of the top stars of Philippine movies, Cheng was still a sought- after actor. Even when Amalia had produced films under her AM Productions, he was one of the key figures in the movie company.

Meanwhile, when Aga catapulted to the top of the young stars’ heap via Viva Entertainment’s “Bagets,” Cheng opened a film outfit and produced no-nonsense projects for the young actor like “Miguelito: Ang Batang Rebelde” under National Artist for Film Lino Brocka’s director. The masterpiece earned Aga the respect of his peers and Cheng’s film company gave it a byword sense in sensible and credible productions. 

Aga’s sister Arlene Muhlach was also given breaks by major studios such as Regal Entertainment, Viva Films and Star Cinema. 

Another Cheng’s daughter by a different woman, Almira Muhlach also made a name in the acting department when she became a “That’s Entertainment” mainstay with German Moreno as her master. 

Cheng went on to produce films and until his death he gave his sons AJ and Andrew Muhlach the necessary leeway to promote them as actors. 

AJ was given a solo starrer by Viva Films via “Double Barrel” while he and Andrew would star together in a new movie under Vic del Rosario’s production. 

Cheng’s body lies in state at the Heritage Memorial Park in Taguig City.
