When the producers of Oru Adaar Love released a song from the movie, little did they know that the video was going to set social media on fire.
The song “Manikya Malaraya Poovi” shows lead actress Priya Prakash flirting with her love interest, Roshan Abdul Rahoof, during a school concert. She smiles coyly, raises her eyebrows, and sends a seductive wink towards her crush.
Her wink did not only melt Roshan Abdul, it won the hearts of people all over social media. The video of the ‘cute wink girl’ instantly went viral, and Priya Prakash became an overnight internet sensation.
18-year-old Priya says that she is overwhelmed and surprised by the reactions she has gotten so far – and admits that she really did not expect her wink to go viral.
“I am very happy. Don’t know how to handle so much love. It’s completely surreal,” Priya told Hindustan Times.
“My family and I are confused about how to react to his instant fame. It happened overnight and I don’t know how to really handle all this fame and attention. This is my first feature film,” she was quoted as saying by The Gulf News.
Priya, who is also a big Bollywood fans, says she hopes to work with her favourite actors Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone one day.
And yes, she’s also single 😉
