Vice Ganda on his latest MMFF movie: ‘This is everyone’s story’
Vice Ganda wants everyone to enjoy the movie and also learn some life lessons from it.
Unkabogable star Vice Ganda admitted that there is some pressure for his latest movie, Partners in Crime, to beat his other top-grossing films such as The Super Parental Guardians, Fantastica, and Gandarrapiddo: The Revenger Squad to name a few. The comedian-actor shared that he found it more stressful making a movie in the middle of a pandemic.
Most of the films Vice has starred in have grossed over 500 million pesos.
“Yung pressure talaga is paano namin matatapos yung pelikula. Siyempre, may pressure kung paano tatanggapin ng crowd [and] audience. Mahirap gumawa ng pelikula ngayon dahil nasa pandemya pa rin tayo, andaming pamantayan. Kung dati mahirap na, mas mahirap ngayon,” he shared.
The 46-year-old celebrity is positive that families can relate to the story of their latest film. Vice added that each moviegoer will see themselves in the characters he and co-star Ivana Alawi play.
“It’s very easy to relate and identify with our characters and with the story itself kasi pag napanood niyo na, this is everyone’s story. This is your story, pamilya ito ng napakaraming Pilipino na nag kukumahog, nagpapakamatay, nagsasakripisyo sa pagtatrabaho para sa tao na mahal na mahal niya,” he added.
Meanwhile, Ivana revealed that she didn’t pressure herself at all during the filming process. The actress-influencer added that she made sure to keep calm all throughout as the pressure wouldn’t do any good on her at all.
“Ineenjoy ko lang actually, I know the movie is super nice, hindi ako nagaalala sa movie. Ineenjoy ko yung process, lahat. Hindi ko masyado prinirpressure sarili ko kasi kapag pripressure mo sarili mo doon na magkakayari,” she said.
Partners in Crime is the official entry of Star Cinema to the 2022 Metro Manila Film Festival. Aside from Vice and Ivana, the movie also includes Candy Pangilinan, Enchong Dee, Cai Cortez, and Rez Cortez to name a few.
