In 30 seconds, Priya Varrier has achieved a thousand milestones. The short clip of a schoolgirl and a schoolboy exchanging flirtatious glances has not only become 2018’s biggest meme, it’s made a debutant actress a social media sensation overnight.
Her cute wink and a coquettish smile may have made Priya Prakash Varrier the national crush but that’s not all for the debutante, she has become the most searched celebrity on hopes to have a lasting acting career rather than being a fleeting Internet sensation.
Her appearance in the teaser song ‘Mani Manikya Malaraya Poovi’ from film Oru Adaar Love ( A Superb Love Story) catapulted her to national fame.
According to a report in Times Of India, Priya has become so popular that her popularity is more than Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif on Google.
Oru Adaar Love which is currently under production in Kochi, is a romantic comedy and has Siyadh Shahjahan and Noorin Shereef sharing space with Priya and Roshan. It is expected to be released by June.
Priya’s debut film, releasing next month, is written and directed by Omar Lulu, and produced by Ousepachan Vaalakuzhy under the banner of Ousepachan Movie House. It stars a bunch of newcomers and has music by Shaan Rahman.
Priya is just 18, but her expressions have generated more conversations than any we have seen in recent times. She has also set a new record on social media. Scoring more than 606k followers on Instagram in a single day, Priya came very close to beating American reality TV personality Kylie Jenner and football star, Cristiano Ronaldo.
