Priya Prakash Varrier Reveals That The Wink Which Went So Viral Was ‘Spontaneous’
The cute wink of Priya Prakash Varrier, the 18-year-old Malayalam actor, in the song Manikya Malaraya Poovi from her upcoming film Oru Adaar Love has become a huge sensation on social media. Tagged as the new ‘expression queen’, Priya will soon be making her debut in the film that celebrates romance among school students.
The new actor became an overnight star even before the release of the film as her Instagram followers crossed one million, and are still rising every minute. The 18-year-old even became one of the most searched-for Indian people on Google for a short period after her video went viral.
Also starring Siyadh Shajahan and Noorin Shereef, Oru Adaar Love is set to release on March 1 this year.
Social media users can’t stop making memes of Varrier’s impish smile and wink and photoshopping or editing it with images and videos of people as diverse as Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Katrina Kaif and Virat Kohli to make it comical.
However, it seems some sections of the society were not amazed after looking at her expressions as an FIR has been registered against Omar Lulu, the director of Oru Adaar Love over the lyrics of the song. The complainants, Zaheer Ali Khan, Muqeeth Khan, residents of Falaknuma in Hyderabad, alleged that song when translated to English, hurts the sentiments of Muslims as it makes derogatory references to the Prophet. They have demanded that either the song should be removed from the film or the lyrics should be changed.
