Sarah Geronimo: Ai-Ai is still the 'box-office queen'
MANILA -- Sarah Geronimo believed that actress- comedienne Ai-Ai delas Alas is still the box-office queen because of the success of her movie “Ang Tanging Ina Niyong Lahat.”
“Para sa akin po mas karapat-dapat si Ms. Ai na tawaging box office queen,” Geronimo said during the press conference for her second film with John Lloyd Cruz titled “You Changed My Life.” Under the direction of Cathy Garcia-Molina, “You Changed My Life” will be shown on February 25.
Geronimo was reacting to reports saying that delas Alas would feel bad if she would not get the box office queen tag. For the year 2008, Geronimo has bagged the SM Cinema Box Office Queen award for her hit film “A Very Special Love.” The singer also admitted that the issue has affected her.
“Siyempre medyo nabother ako kasi ka-trabaho ko si Ms. A., Ai-Ai delas Alas ’yon,” she said. “Basta ako nire- respeto ko na lang ang bawat isa. Si Ms. Ai nire-respeto ko.” (MNS)
