By , on January 12, 2016


MANILA – Action-comedy film “Beauty and the Bestie” starring Vice Ganda and Coco Martin is a certified box-office hit, after earning P472.7 million on its third week of screening.

Star Cinema, one of the two producers, claims that the movie has then become the top-grossing Metro Manila Film Fest (MMFF) entry of all time – Beauty and the Bestie is one of the eight official entries this year.

Star Cinema AdProm director Roxy Liquigan has taken to his Twitter account to announce the news. His tweets include hashtags #AllTimeNumberOne and #GoodKarma.

Meanwhile, comedy film “My Bebe Love” lead cast Ai-Ai delas Alas doubts Star Cinema’s statement on being the number one movie among MMFF entries as she believes that theirs is the actual highest-grossing MMFF film.

In response, Star Cinema AdProm manager Mico del Rosario has tweeted, “Tigilan nayang pagiging bitter. E di, sabihin sa MMFF to release the rankings. Plain and simple… Naniniwala kami na produkto mo ang magsasalita para sayo. Never kaming may sinabi about competition because we always believe that competition also has something to offer to the market. I challenge the MMFF committee to release ranking with gross.”

“Stop being bitter. Tell MMFF to release the rankings. Plain and simple… We believe that your product will speak for you. We never said anything about competition because we always believe that competition also has something to offer to the market. I challenge the MMFF committee to release ranking with gross.”

Del Rosario, however, has not mentioned to whom in particular his tweets were meant for.
