We all remember the girl who stormed the world with her wink don’t we? Priya Prakash Varrier’s iconic wink took social media by storm. She became every teenager’s crush after a video clip of her winking at her onscreen classmate went viral on social media. The clip was from the song ‘Manikya Malaraya Poovi’ from the Malayalam romantic-comedy “Oru Adaar Love”. Varrier’s cute gestures such as the sudden wink and the gun-shot gesture at her classmate (played by Roshan Abdul Rahoof). That song became controversial as the song “Manikya Malaraya Poovi” is said to be a traditional song that depicts the love between Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) and Khadijah bint Khuwaylid, and that the visual depiction of the song hurts the religious sentiments of the Muslim community. Since then, social media has been thriving on Priya Prakash Varrier memes and it doesn’t seem to have ended completely.
Here’s some good news for all those who have loved her wink! Priya will soon be seen making her Bollywood debut in “Sridevi Bungalow”.
Directed by Prasanth Mambully, the teaser of “Sridevi Bungalow” promises to be based on the life of the late superstar actress, Sridevi herself. The teaser takes us through her days as a well-known actress of her time, her self-destruction and her sudden death at home. Rumoured to be a big-budget movie exceeding 70 crores, the bilingual movie will be released in Hindi and Tamil and has a number of prominent actors such as Prabhu Deva and Priyanshu Chatterjee as well. However, nothing of the sort has been really confirmed as yet.
Thus, we are eagerly waiting for Priya Prakash Varrier to strike us with the same kind of magic in Bollywood. Though she has met seasoned Bollywood actors such as Ranveer Singh, Katrina Kaif, Varun Dhawan and Hrithik Roshan during a special screening of the upcoming movie “Uri: The Surgical Strike”, she considers herself to be very inexperienced. Let’s hope that she soon joins the team of Bollywood newbies and creates her name as an actress in our midst as well.
