February 2018 saw the entry of Malayalam young sensation Priya Prakash Varrier who grabbed the attention of the whole world with her wink act. Priya’s act in the song from Malayalam film Oru Adaar Love had the whole world stand up and take notice of her cute wink act. Post all the admiration and tremendous following on social media, Priya Prakash Varrier did face some backlash from a certain section who were opposing the lyrics in the song Manikya Malaraya Poovi which had the young actor in it. The news eventually died down after the Kerala high court issued a stay order which stated that Priya Prakash Varrier cannot be held responsible for the song. However, things seemed to have come back to point zero after a party based out of party has filed a petition in Supreme Court on Priya Prakash Varrier.
According to a report in HT, the petition was filed by the Hyderabad based party stating Priya’s wink act is forbidden in Islam and hence criminal charges against the young actor have to be pressed. However, there was no reaction from neither Priya Prakash Varrier nor the makers of Oru Adaar Love.
Priya, who learns music and dance, was initially selected to do a small role in the upcoming film Oru Adaar Love and the song in the film Manikya Malaraya, has turned viral in the internet world. In the clip, Priya is seen giving a wink and smiling while flirting with a boy, and it is the mischief, innocence and simplicity in the shots that have touched the right chords with viewers.
The clip has made Priya the rage of the young and the old and is on way to becoming one of the fastest shared in the social media. Modest in her stardom, Priya told the media that while she was roped in for a small part in the movie initially, she has come to know now that the film’s makers are considering doing some changes to the script so as to give her a more prominent role after all the publicity that she has got now.
