Just like you, we were extremely taken aback by this girl who had flooded our Facebook timelines yesterday. Curiously, we checked the comments section (because we knew that’s where the answer lay) and found out that she had appeared in Malyalam music video (the song Oru Adaar Love from the movie Manikya Malarya Poovi), and her wink was so well appreciated that it broke the internet.
What was so special about the wink? Why did it go viral? We don’t know. And Priya Prakash Varrier (who is the girl) can’t believe it either.
In the music video, two school going students flirt with each other using their eyebrows. It’s a strange notion, but it works really well.
“The director has told us strictly 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, Priya’s mother told The News Minute.
Other than being an actress, Priya is also a first-year B.Com student from Vimala College in Thrissur. Her Instagram account, has already crossed a million followers so you can kind of gauge how crazy the world has gone for her. We wish that her film finds a lot of success, and she has a great career ahead. Her fame shouldn’t fizzle out as quickly as it has come.
But we’ll leave that conversation for later. For now, let’s look at some hilarious Priya Prakash Varrier memes.
