The 18-year old Malayalam actress Priya Prakash Varrier is in news ever since the makers of Omar Lulu's Oru Adaar Love released the first song online. The song titled 'Manikya Malaraya Poovi' features the lead actors of the film Noorin Shereef, Siyadh Shajahan, Priya Prakash Varrier and Michelle Ann Daniel.
And much to the delight of the makers, the song turned out to be an instant hit across the social media, thanks to Priya Prakash Varrier's winking scene in the song. The response for the scene is so huge that Priya Prakash Varrier unseats Malayalam actor Dulquer Salmaan to become the top Malayalam celebrity on Instagram.
However, the unprecedented craze for Priya Prakash Varrier has turned out to be a difficult situation for her family.
In an interview to The News Minute, Priya Prakash Varrier's mother Preetha stated that it is very difficult for her family to cope up with all the attention.
"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." Preetha revealed to The News Minute.
