The Kathniel tandem continues to be strong crowd-drawers in the box-office.
Crazy Beautiful You, the latest movie starring Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo, has already earned P162 million as of yesterday, March 4.
This was confirmed by Star Cinema AdProm Head Roxy Liquigan in a text message sent to PEP earlier today, March 5.
Directed by Mae Cruz-Alviar, Crazy Beautiful You revolves around a rebellious young girl named Jackie who is influenced by a responsible young man named Kiko.
This Star Cinema movie was able to reach this box-office figure eight days after its opening day.
It was previously reported that the movie, which also stars Gabby Concepcion and Lorna Tolentino, earned P38 million on its opening day last February 25.
In a recent interview on Aquino and Abunda Tonight, Daniel and Kathryn were asked if they’re better actors or actresses now after experiencing challenges in their lives.
Daniel pointed out, “Ako mas character ko yung si Kiko… Si Daniel, si Kiko.”
TV host Boy Abunda prodded Daniel, “Nagkita ang role at ang pagkatao?”
Daniel agreed by saying, “Parang ganoon. Yeah, ang hirap sabihin kasi baka sabihin nila, wala namang inakting ‘yan, siya lang.”
Kathryn, on the other hand, said, “Ako feeling ko, first time kong ginawa yang character na medyo rebellious, loud and it’s something na gusto kong i-try… Gusto kong ma-try na role.”
“Happy ako kasi. Every project, iba ang ino-offer ko. Si Direk May nag-guide sila, sina Ate Carmi [Raymundo, writer], ang buong team, nag-guide para mapanood nila, bago pero natural, hindi yung pilit na maging rebellious.”
What is the story all about?
Kathryn explained, “It’s really for the family na hindi lang basta siya love story pero ang daming matututunan dito. Parents, kung paano itri-treat yung anak mo. Yung anak mo, [paano] iti-treat yung magulang.”
In the movie, Iñigo Pascual (the son of Piolo Pascual) served as the third party in the budding romance of Jackie and Kiko.
With regards to his co-star, Daniel praised his fellow ABS-CBN teen actor. “Napakabait na bata. Si Iñigo, gusto niyang matuto. Masarap ka-trabaho.”
