"The Unmarried Wife," starring Dingdong Dantes, Paulo Avelino, and Angelica Panganiban, has once again proven that it is this year's biggest drama event.
At the film's victory party held earlier today, December 8, it was announced that the Direk Maryo J. Delos Reyes masterpiece has already earned P246.3 million worldwide and still counting.

In an interview with members of the press, Angelica admitted that she did not expect this success.
"Parang ito yata ang pinakaunang pelikula ko na umabot ng more than P200 million kaya masayang-masayang-masaya," the Kapamilya actress explained. "At hindi ako makapaniwalang nangyayari 'to ngayon talaga. Siguro hindi pa siya nagsi-sink in sa'kin at all. Baka next year pa."
Angelica is overwhelmed with how people have accepted this "challenging" film.
"Pinakaunang naramdaman ko talaga is para siyang nagsusumabog 'yung saya ko na.. Well believe it or not napagod talaga kami sa pelikulang 'to. Medyo marami nga siyang pinagdaanan bago siya nabuo. Bago siya natapos," the 30-year-old actress revealed.
"Umabot kami sa point na parang ''Wag na lang kaya natin ituloy (laughs).' So nakakataba ng puso 'to, nakakawala ng pagod na nakita mo na maraming tao ang interesado sa pelikula mo," she added.
This Generation's Drama Queen then relayed how the "word of mouth" helped them achieve the blockbuster success.
"Pagtapos nila maging interisado, kinalat nila 'yung balita na maganda 'yung pelikula, panoorin niyo. Parang it's worth your time. Kaya 'yung word of mouth malaki 'yung naging impact niya sa pelikula," Angelica said.
Moreover, Angelica took to her Instagram account (@iamangelicap) this happy news and expressed how grateful she is to everyone who supported the film.
"From Bryan and Anne ❤️ Maraming maraming salamat at binigyan ninyo ng panahon ang pelikulang #theunmarriedwife 😁 Lahat ng pagod at paghihirap, luha at sakitan 😅 Nagbunga ang lahat dahil hindi ninyo kami binigo! 2016 will end with a happy and full filled heart ❤️" the caption reads.
Co-starring with Angelica in "The Unmarried Wife" are Dingdong Dantes and Paulo Avelino.
The film follows the story of Anne (Angelica Panganiban) and the decisions she has to make after she finds out her husband Geoff (Dingdong Dantes) cheated on her repeatedly.
While her marriage falls apart, she meets Bryan (Paulo Avelino), who helps take away the pain.
Will she find the strength to forgive Geoff or will she move on to Bryan?
