Xian Lim and Kim Chiu movie's P100 million target achieved!

Xian Lim and Kim Chiu are now certified box-office stars, after their film 'Bakit Hindi Ka Crush Ng Crush Mo?' passed the P100-million mark in the Philippine Box Office.

ABS-CBN already reported a week ago that the Star Cinema movie already reached that mark last week based on their own tally.

That has been officially confirmed this week after Box Office Mojo, which tabulates box-office figures of all movies being shown in the country, released its report for the period August 14 to 18.
