Ever since Malayalam actress Priya Prakash Varrier became a rage in a matter of hours, she has been hounded by an excited media and frenzied fans. The question naturally is whether Bollywood is the next step. Priya looks adorably confused as she maintains, “I am still unsure of how to handle the fame,” but in the next breath she’s talking about the B-town hunks she would love to debut with!
Naturally, topping her wish-list are Shah Rukh Khan, Sidharth Malhotra, and Ranveer Singh, who she claims to be a big fan of. “Why not? If the offer is good I’d love to,” she smiles, referring to a possible Hindi film debut.
While the country is still gushing over her teasing expressions in the song ‘Manikya Malaraya poovi…’ from the film Oru Adaar Love, Priya reveals that the scene was pretty much spontaneous. Director Omar Lulu apparently asked her to do something cute and improvise. “The wink was not pre-decided,” she maintains.
All the guys crushing on her would be glad to know that she is delightfully single at the moment. “I study in a girl’s college, so there are no possibilities of a high-school romance. I have had lots of crushes, but nothing serious,” she claims.
Speaking of crushes, she has a large one on Malayalam cinema’s favourite, Dulquer Salmaan. Priya confesses that working with Dulquer would be a dream come true for her. “This is my biggest dream. To come on one screen with DQ,” she wrote, a true fan-girl, sharing the poster of Dulquer Salman’s latest film, Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal. We guess it’s just a matter of moments before her wish comes true!
Meanwhile, it’s not all hunky-dory in Priya’s world. Her viral song has got into trouble, as a Muslim group has filed a complaint against it for hurting their sentiments. The police have registered a case against director Omar Lulu over a complaint that the lyrics of the song in Oru Adaar Love hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims.
The complainants have alleged that the song ‘Manikya Malaraya Poovi…’ had an “objectionable” reference to Prophet Muhammad’s wife.
