New Delhi: Social media's latest sensation, Priya Prakash Varrier has become the talk of the town overnight. While memes on her are unstoppable, the 18-year-old is still finding all of this new found popularity surreal.
Speaking exclusively to WION, Priya talked about her debut film 'Oru Adaar Love', the song 'Manikya Malaraya Poovi' which made her an overnight star and Bollywood favourites.
Priya said, “Life has changed overnight for me. I am still unsure of how to handle the fame.” The teen actress revealed that although she is enjoying her new found fame and her parents are happy yet they want her to continue her studies.
When asked about how was the iconic moment created on screen? Was she asked by the director, Omar Lulu, to wink at her co-star? “He asked me to do something cute and basically improvise. The wink was not pre-decided.”
Calling herself a Shah Rukh Khan and Ranveer Singh fan, Priya said she would not mind working in Bollywood film. "Why not? If the offer is good I'd love to.”And which actors would be on her wishlist, we asked. “Ranveer Singh, SRK, and Sidharth Malhotra,”Priya answered shyly.
Talking about her co-star Roshan Abdul Rahoof, Priya said, "he was supportive and understanding". She even thanked her fans for showering her with so much love and affection.
“I study in a girls college, so there are no possibilities of an high-school romance. I have had lots of crushes, but nothing serious,” revealed Priya.
How would she describe her ideal man? “He should be chivalrous. Open doors, pull the chair for me.”And what would be a perfect date for her? “It has to be candlelight dinner for sure," Priya said.
Priya became an internet sensation after her small video clip went viral. Basically, the sweet high school love story of a boy and a girl has been brilliantly tapped in the video. And especially her 'winking act' has won many hearts.
