The 18-year-old, Malayalam actress, who dreams to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali became a viral sensation on the internet ever since the makers of ‘Oru Adaar Love’ released their first song. The song titled ‘Manikya Malaraya Poovi’ created a buzz in the nation and Priya’s sultry kohl eyes caught everyone’s attention. Soon #PriyaPrakashVarrier started trending on the internet and then there was no looking back.
The actress became one of the highest celebrities on Instagram to receive so much fame in a day. It was an unbelievable moment for the makers of the film as well as for Priya’s parents. Priya’s wink was an instant hit on social media. Leaving celebrities like Dulquer Salmaan and Anushka Shetty behind, Priya became the top Malayalam celebrity on Instagram.
The instant fame came as a surprise to Priya’s family. They never thought that this would happen ever. The overnight growing popularity of Priya became difficult to handle for her family.
While talking to The News Minute, Priya Prakash Varrier’s mother Preetha stated that handling Priya’s instant popularity became difficult for them. Revealing the solution they came up with, she said,
“The director, Omar Lulu has strictly told us not to give any interviews. He has said she’s to give interviews only after the film releases. The film has just started and they’ve shot only a little bit. I’ve sent her to the hostel because of all this noise. We never expected this to happen. We never thought much about it. She had a desire and so we took her to an audition. She’d gone for another audition last year called by the same team, when she was a Class XII student and they’d selected her for that film as well – but the shooting was during the board exams. So she couldn’t go for it. They’d said then itself that she should come the next time there’s a casting call.”
