My Perfect You, the movie of Gerald Anderson and Pia Wurtzbach, has grossed P100 million in the box-office, according to Star Cinema.
This was revealed by ABS-CBN's film production arm through its Instagram account on April 1, 2018. Directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, this romance drama was able to reach this feat after opening in cinemas on March 14.
The film became controversial when Gerald's girlfriend, Bea Alonzo, suddenly unfollowed the Kapamilya actor and she deleted her post showing her support for the movie.
When Star Cinema AdProm head Mico del Rosario announced the box-office earnings of My Perfect You, netizens questioned the figures released about the first movie of Gerald and the 2015 Miss Universe winner.
In his Instagram account, del Rosario posted a quote card indicating that My Perfect You grossed P100 million as of March 31, 2018. He wrote in the caption:
"Maraming maraming salamat po! To God Be The Glory #MyPerfectYou"
A netizen using the handle @manalllopez accused Star Cinema of using Bea Alonzo in creating hype for the movie My Perfect You.
"Hindi kapani paniwala, sarili lang natin niloloko natin hay naku todo promo na nga ginamit pa si bea alonzo. Matalino na ang tao ngayon at maraming Resibo, waley talaga yan pinilit lang, provide us legit resibo para maniwala kami wala ngang kapila pila."
The Star Cinema executive responded to @manalllopez by writing in the comments section:
"hi. never pong nanggamit ng mga taong hindi involved sa project ang mga tao behind every project. napanood mo na po ba movie? please watch. maganda siya :)"
Del Rosario also exchanged comments with a netizen who accused Star Cinema of fooling the public.
The netizen using the handle @anbhelle wrote in the comments section: "100M na daw po #alamna"
The Kapamilya executive responded to @anbhelle by writing: "if hindi mo kaya maging masaya sa nagagawa ng ibang tao... Happy Easter sa iyo! :)"
The netizen alleged: "masaya po ba tawag nyo don na alam nyo na niloloko nyo ang mga tao Happy Eaater [sic] din po inyo .."
Del Rosario retaliated by asking: "nagpalabas po kami ng pelikula... ano pong niloloko doon? :) God bless you po!"
