During the victory party for Praybeyt Benjamin last November 16, Vice Ganda admitted he’s still on a high because of the movie’s box office success, especially since it is now considered the highest earning movie of all time in Philippine cinema. As of November 16, the comedy film’s earnings had already reached P327 million. “Hanggang ngayon [nasa] cloud nine pa rin ako. First week pa lang eh malala na ‘yung pakiramdam ko lalo na ngayon na ayaw huminto, ayaw paawat ng Praybeyt Benjamin. Hanggang ngayon kumikita pa, ilang linggo na [siyang palabas].”

The TV host-actor said that he was positive that the movie would be a hit but he did not expect that it would break box office records. “’Di ko inakala ‘yan alam kong maghi-hit itong pelikulang ito pero hindi ganito kalala. Walang naka-anticipate, walang nag-expect nito kaya siguro ‘yung nanay ko bilib na bilib sa akin hindi niya aakalain na makaka-P327 million ang pelikulang ito.”

He continued that he has nothing more to ask for because he already got more than what he wanted. “Hindi ko alam kung saan ko pa ilalagayyung pasasalamat sa puso ko, malala ‘yung biyaya. Nahihiya na ako sa mga bagay na ibinibigay sa akin ng Diyos. Kahit ‘yung mga bagay na hindi ko hinihiling, binibigay Niya. Nahihiya na akong humiling.”

Vice added that the blessings that have been coming his way have more than compensated for all the hardships that he had gone through when he was younger. “Kung alam ko lang na ganito kalaki ang bawi, sana mas nahirapan pa ako noon,” he joked. “Kung anuman ‘yung hindi magandang nangyari sa buhay ko ipinagpapasalamat ko dahil lahat ‘yon nagtulong-tulong para maging mas mahusay ako ngayon at dun sa mga hindi matitinong tao na nakasalubong ko sa pagtahak ng mundong ito, maraming maraming salamat sa inyo dahil pinapatapang n’yo ako araw-araw.”

And because of his film’s success, it is most probable that Vice might will be awarded the Box Office King, which he admitted he is hoping to get. “Basta excited ako [at] sana sa akin maibigay. Napaka-ipokrita ko naman ‘pag sinabi kong, ‘Naku hindi ko iniisip ‘yan bahala na.’ Ipinagdadasal ko, ngayon pa lang kini-claim ko na. Kasi ngayon ganun ‘yung ugali ko eh, i-claim na natin ang victory. Wala namang mawawala sa atin, malay mo ibibigay, at ibibigay naman talaga.”

Being gay, Push.com.ph asked Vice if he preferred the title of Box Office King or Box
