Sunday, November 20, 2011
COMEDIAN Vice Ganda still could not believe that his latest movie "Praybeyt Benjamin" is the highest grossing Filipino movie of all time.
Recently, the movie actor had a thanksgiving party, which was attended by ABS-CBN President Charo Santos-Concio, Star Cinema Head Malou Santos and Vice's co-stars Eddie Gracia, Jimmy Santos, Vandolph, DJ Durano, Nikki Valdez, Malou de Guzman, Kean Cipriano, Carlos Agassi and Derek Ramsay.
According to the "Showtime" resident judge, he is still in cloud nine with the results of the film and he could not thank enough all the moviegoers for supporting the movie.
"Ang tanging masasabi ko eh maraming-maraming salamat sa patuloy na pagtangkilik sa pelikulang ito, sa pagbibigay sa akin ng karangalan na makapagbigay ng kasayahan."
"Praybeyt Benjamin", which was co-produced by Star Cinema and Viva Films, already reached the P310-million mark as of Sunday.
Vice was also asked if he is now thinking of the Box-Office King award or even this year's Best actor trophy.
The comedian replied: "Kung saka-sakaling na ako nga yung makatanggap ng award ang lagi kong iniisip eh anong isu-suot ko. Sana nga sa akin maibigay. Siyempre napaka-ipokrita ko naman kung sasabihin kong hindi ko iniisip yan. Ngayon pa naman eh ikini-claim ko na."
"Yun naman yung sinasabi ko eh, i-claim na naman natin kasi walang masama naman diba, at malay mo talagang ibigay."
Vice added that if there's a title he wants to get, it would definitely be "Ultimate Box-Office Star."
Director Wenn Deramas also confirmed that Vice will be doing another movie by next year and the actor is hopeful to grace the big screen with child stars Xyriel Manabat and Zaijian Jaranilla.
The second installment of the "Praybeyt Benjamin" film is set by 2013. (Sunnex)
