Direk Cathy Garcia-Molina reacted to a netizen who alleged that the box-office gross of The Hows Of Us has "padding" or has been inflated to make it higher than the actual amount.
The director reposted the announcement of Star Cinema indicating that the Kathryn Bernardo-Daniel Padilla movie earned PHP116 million as of August 31, 2018.
The quote card disclosed that The Hows Of Us grossed PHP116,943,914.02 in a span of three days.
Last August 30, Direk Cathy also reposted the opening day gross of The House Of Us on her Instagram account.
In the comments section, she responded to a netizen who commented that the amount looks questionable because of the cents included in the figure.
A day after its premiere, Star Cinema announced that The Hows Of Us grossed PHP35,938,622.74 on its opening day.
In the comments section, a netizen using the handle @dsd.16 asked the director: "Bakit may butaldirek?!?! Dito magsisimula ang padding issue na naman."
Direk Cathy responded by writing: "@dsd.16 hindi po. Jan nga matatapos padding issue. Kasi galing mismo yan sa official statement. Pag rounded off ang figures, yan ang mas nakaktakot. Kasi impossible na saktong walang butal ang gross. May butal ang presyo ng tickets e. [smiley] eksakto to. Promise!"
PEPsters, what can you say about this "padding issue"?
