'Kasal,' kumita agad ng P10 million sa unang araw!

This is definitely a good start!

Star Cinema's 25th anniversary first offering "Kasal," starring Derek Ramsay, Paulo Avelino, and Bea Alonzo, debuted strongly with a first-day gross of P10 million.

It's definitely the most controversial film to date, reading the rave reviews dominating the social media.

At the Thanksgiving Bloggers Conference held earlier today, May 17, lead actress Bea and acclaimed director Ruel S. Bayani expressed how grateful they are to each and everyone who supported and have watched the film.

"Syempre very happy. Pero syempre lagi namang ang gusto natin i-expect ay 'yung positive na outcome. Masayang-masaya kami dun sa first day na kinita and mas gusto ko sana na mapanood 'to ng maraming tao, not only because of the box office hit, but because it's a story that I want a lot of people to see," the Movie Queen stressed.

"Gusto kong pag-usapan 'yung issue ng pelikula. 'Yun talaga 'yung pinakaimportante sa'kin and the mere fact that I was able to work with Direk Ruel S. Bayani, 'yun reward na 'yun itself," she added.

Direk Ruel shared Bea's sentiments.

"Masayang-masaya po kami pero hindi sa dini-diminish ko 'yung tungkol sa kinita na pera but more than the money, it's the feedback syempre," he admitted.

Direk dedicated the success not just to his actors, but also to the people behind the cameras.

"'Yun 'yung mas naiiwan sa isip namin dahil 'pag in-appreciate ka nila, ang ina-appreciate nila ay 'di lang naman kami or ang ibang artista, ina-appreciate nila lahat. Ang magagaling naming staff, ang mahuhusay naming crew, ang lahat ng creatives, lahat ng staff ng Star Cinema at Star Post. 'Yun 'yung nagpapasaya sa'kin na nabibigyan natin ng appreciation ang napakasisipag na film workers," he explained.

Co-starring with Bea in "Kasal" are Derek Ramsay and Paulo Avelino.

The film follows the story of Lia Marquez (Bea), a simple lass who is set to marry Cebu's most eligible bachelor, Philip Cordero (Paulo), who is currently running to clinch the mayoral position after his father's term ends.

However, things get complicated when Lia's ex-boyfriend, Wado dela Costa (Derek), returns to work for them in a project that will help Philip win the elections.

Inevitably, feelings resurface and doubts arise.

As we get closer to the wedding day, Lia becomes unsure if she is choosing the right man to marry, torn between the man from her past and the man she's building a future with.

"Kasal" is NOW SHOWING in 200 cinemas nationwide!
