The ‘winking’ sensation Priya Prakash is in news for her playing a character named Sridevi who dies after drowning in a bathtub in a film titled Sridevi Bungalow. The Malayalam actress Priya Prakash Varrier starrer trailer of the movie got recently released and came under the scanner. After all, the trailer gave a glimpse into the plot which seemed eerily similar to how screen legend Sridevi passed away in February last year. That is the reason that the producer and husband of late Sridevi have slapped legal action on the makers. Now Sridevi’s daughter Janhvi reacted on Sridevi Bungalow.
Recently Janhvi Kapoor was at an award show and naturally, the assembled media there found it a perfect opportunity to ask her opinion about the movie and the name Sridevi being used in it. Janhvi’s reaction to the question shows that she had no idea about this question at her. Before showing you her reaction, here look at the trailer of Sridevi Bungalow.
Janhvi seemed clueless and said nothing; neither that she doesn’t want to talk about it nor about her opinion. Her manager asked her to leave the podium and called off the media interaction. Here, watch the video below:
Priya Prakash in her statement said:
“Sridevi is just the name of my character in the movie. Who would want to create such controversies? I think the curiosity surrounding the trailer is good and we have to leave it to the audience to judge if the film is based on the veteran actress Sridevi ma’am.”
Director Prashant Mambully also said that it was just a “coincidence” that his film tells the story of an actress whose name is Sridevi.
We will have to see how the release of the movie clear the confusions about the movie being inspired by the legendary Sridevi’s life. What do you think about it?
