He appeared with other Mr. Philippines title holders like Jesus “Og “ Ramos, Stan Carbungco, Mario Hernandez and Pat Pagsibigan in Kahariang Bato which was produced by Tamaraw Productions.

His teamup with Alicia Vergel, who later became his wife, was considered controversial during their time. They did some sizzling kissing scenes which were considered bold during those days.

After his separation from Alicia, Cesar moved to the US with his new family. His son Ace Vergel brought him home when he learned that Cesar would be put in a nursing home.

“That’s okay in the States. Pero hindi natin kultura ’yun (But that’s not our culture). I really convinced him to come home. Cesar (Arlen Quindo Aguilar in real life) has been in a coma at St. Luke’s Medical Center. He was 78. He died with his two children by Alicia, Beverly and Ace, at his bedside.

His daughter Beverly Vergel and granddaughter Tracy Vergel, like son Ace, also entered showbiz.
He was married to Alicia Vergel. They had two children, Ace and Beverly.
