For the unversed, Priya became a celebrity overnight after a short clip from the song Manikya Malaraya Poovi from Omar Lulu’s upcoming Malayalam movie Oru Adaar Love went viral on social media. The song sung by Vineeth Sreenivasan and composed by Shaan Rahman became popular but it was Priya who stole the show. In the video, we can see Priya making adorable expressions and winking to grab her crush’s (played by Roshan) attention.

Soon, after the clip went viral, Priya saw an avalanche of followers on her social media account.

Interestingly, Priya gained about 606K followers within a day!

The queen of expressions has thus become the third “celebrity” to attain such a feat and has now joined the league consisting of American model -TV personality Kylie Jenner and legendary footballer Cristiano Ronaldo! They are the only two celebrities ahead of her to gain such mammoth following in just one day, reports suggest.

She has now become more popular than Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg on Instagram! Yes, you read that right. The 18-year-old girl has gained over 5 million followers on the photo-sharing site while Zuckerberg’s follower count stands at 4.1 million!

Oru Adaar Love is Omar’s third film. Besides Priya, the movie also stars Siyadh Shajahan and Noorin Shereef. The film is slated to release on June 14 this year.
