[If concerned citizens are listening, director, co-workers, I am no longer in showbiz because I am sick],” explained Cuntapay.
The video of the 81-year-old actress was posted on the official Facebook page of the Cagayan Provincial Information Office. Reports said Cuntapay had experienced pain in her spinal column and she has been unable to walk since July 5. Due to her condition, the actress is not fit to work at present.
