Alden Richards is now reaping the success of his Star Cinema movie Hello, Love, Goodbye.The film is definitely a hit as it has breached the P800 million mark and is still counting. The film is now regarded as one of the highest-grossing Filipino films of all time.
Also starring Box-office Queen Kathryn Bernardo, Alden is now being dubbed as the newest Box-office King.
While many fans felt disheartened about Alden being a solo artist, he said that being in a love team isn’t really necessary to be successful in showbiz.
“Minsan hindi talaga kailangang nasa isang love team ang tao,” Alden told entertainment reporters at the official launch of his athleisure collection “Avel x Alden.”
He cited that he and former Kapuso celebrity Louise Delos Reyes met relative success way back in 2012 through the romance drama One True Love.
“That was also successful and hindi kami in real life,” Alden added.
For him, the use of God-given talents and the quality of a series or a film’s story are the things that matter the most to hook the audience.
“Naniniwala po ako na kapag mahusay at maganda ang materyal, doon kakapit ang manunuod,” he said.
Alden continues to receive praises and attention from the online world for Hello, Love, Goodbye which many believe saved him from the setbacks of his acting career. After being mocked and criticized online, the film has paved the way for him to rise up again and gather new fans.
He is now set to return to Kapuso primetime with The Gift along with Jo Berry, Mikee Quintos, Thia Thomalla, Rochelle Pangilinan, Jean Garcia, Elizabeth Oropesa, Martin del Rosario, Divine Tetay, and many more. It is set to air in September.
