Priya Prakash Varrier might be only 19, but she’s got what most teenagers can only dream of – big film producers bagging her even before her official film release, around 5.8 million Instagram followers (as of April 27, 2018), huge bank balance (thanks to all those endorsements) and a million views on YouTube (because she winks hard). Priya Prakash Varrier is here to stay and there’s no doubt about it.
Her popularity became evident with her Instagram account. Currently, she has over 5.8 million following her on the social networking site and the number just swells every time. The ‘queen of expressions’ is officially the third “celebrity” to attain such a feat after American TV personality Kylie Jenner and legendary footballer Cristiano Ronaldo!
Coming to her popularity, the budding Malayali actress shot to fame overnight after this viral song from her upcoming debut movie ‘Oru Adaar Love’ created waves on the internet. Her wink made her crush a million hearts, just like it did for Roshan Rahoof in the song. Check out her famous wink:
After becoming ‘India’s national crush’, she went on to appear in a ‘Holi special’ song with her same co-star Roshan, and it was as colourful as their chemistry:
Later, we saw her in her first television ad by Nestle and she looked sexy even in her sporty avatar. Yet again, she gave that famous wink (though this time shorter) but still managed to win many hearts. Watch it here:
While teenagers only dream to bag big awards in their life, Priya has gone ahead and achieved it even before the release of her debut movie Oru Adaar Love. Yes, her expressions have finally bore fruit and she has now received her first honour.
Priya Varrier’s iconic wink and popularity turned into this year’s most ‘memed’ moment and that is why the iconic jewellery band PC Jewelers, honoured her at the Outlook Social Media Awards jury held in New Delhi.
She looked every inch the diva in her wine-colored, off-shoulder ballroom gown at the event. She totally rocked her formal look and looked at par with other celebrity guests like Shilpa Shetty and Athiya Shetty.
Priya got the maximum votes for the “OSM Viral Personality of the Year”. Watch her BIG moment here:
Feeling elated after receiving such an honour, she took to Instagram and announced the good news to her million fans. She captioned it saying, “Feeling honoured to receive my first award. Thank you Outlook for choosing me to be the “viral personality of the year“.
Her debut Malayalam movie Oru Adaar Love will be released in other languages as well such as Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. It will release on June 14 this year and we can’t wait to see this awesome pair again on screen. Here, we share a viral video of the two having some fun:
Meanwhile, the actress has been flooded with several Bollywood and Tollywood offers as well. But, will she retain her charm in other projects? We’ll have to wait and watch.
