It is true that Vice Ganda starred in some Metro Manila Film Festival highest-grossers.
But this time, Vic Sotto has to disagree with his latest claim.
Vice’s entry for this year’s edition of the Festival is his film “The Revenger Squad” featuring top-caliber cast with Daniel Padilla and Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach.
On a recent interview, Vice set a virtually gargantuan feat of achieving a P1-billion gross for their movie.
He said, “Siyempre, masaya kung malampasan. Gusto ko rin yun kaya nagke-claim ako, sinasabi ko, P1 billion, P1 billion! Sobrang ambisyosa ko. Pero deadma ako. Kine claim ko lang naman.”
But for the veteran comedian, it is quite impossible.
Vic is also a certified top-grosser in the Festival, with his Enteng Kabisote franchise leading some of the yearly editions of it.
In a recent interview, the 63 years-old comedian/host said, “Mathematically, it’s impossible. As a whole pwede. Baka yun yung sinasabi ni Vice.”
According to him, it is nearly impossible because there is a long line of movies which the Filipino families can choose to watch this coming Christmas.
One of which is Vic’s own movie starring his reunion with former love team Dawn Zulueta in the movie “Meant to Beh.”
However, Vic is quick to sidestep and instead supported Vice on saying, “Sana nga maabot niya para mas maganda for a lot of people, for everyone.”
As for him, Vic has not set his eye on achieving the highest-grosser tag.
He can be considered as a veteran in the Festival and achieving that feat is not new to him.
Instead, he is favoring the on-flow of the crowd which will support the Filipino films all throughout.
He said in an interview, “Hindi ko na iniisip yun, e. Sa tagal ko na sa festival, ang iniisip ko lang, maraming manood ng festival.”
Vic added, “Not for anything else, not to take away credit from the past festivals, I believe did well. I just want a lot of people to be happy, to be merry this Christmas na kahit anong type mong panoorin. For me, personally, gusto ko maraming manood ng mga pelikula.”
