Priya Varrier has become an internet sensation and here is how her family is reacting to her new-found fame
Priya Varrier is a sensation and her family cant be happier
Priya Prakash Varrier has turned into an overnight sensation after being highlighted in a Malayalam songÂ Manikya Malaraya PooviÂ from the filmÂ Oru Adaar Love. A clasp from the tune has since turned into a viral video and has made her an Internet sensation not simply in India but rather in nations to the extent Egypt and neighbouring Pakistan, where fans have been posting remarks about her expressive face. When a leading daily contacted her family, it was her mother Preetha who answered the phone. âPriya has gone to the hostel, the director has told us strictly not to give any interviews,â she says.
âHe has said sheâs to give interviews only after the film releases. The film has just started and theyâve shot only a little bit. Iâve 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. Sheâd gone for another audition last year called by the same team when she was a Class XII student and theyâd selected her for that film as well â but the shooting was during the board exams. So she couldnât go for it. Theyâd said then itself that she should come the next time thereâs a casting call.â
Thank you for all the love and supportđ

Priyaâs Instagram account has gained an astounding 1.3 million followers in a single day, a feat that more accomplished and established actors are yet to reach. Asked about Priyaâs photographs that have flooded the Internet, Preetha says, âShe had done modelling once. She did a ramp show. Sheâs not the one who put all those pics on Instagram. They are all fake accounts. These pictures have been put up by photographers who had these images. Weâd not taken these images from them. The ones sheâs put up are likely to be selfies with friends.â
Reacting to the craze that Priya has become overnight, Preetha says, âIt is very difficult. But what can we do? We canât make anyone hate us by objecting. It will be seen differently.â While the young team is still grappling with the sudden fame, they are hopeful that Oru Adaar Love will open new doors for them in future.
