It is 2 days to Valentine’s Day, but it looks like the occasion has come in early for the makers of ‘Oru Adaar Love’, who have released their Malayalam song ‘Manikya Malaraya Poovi’, which has gone viral for all the right reasons.
Featuring debutante Priya Prakash Varrier, the music video depicts a quintessential high-school romance as a boy and a girl exchange flirtatious glances. But it is Priya’s expressions and a playful wink which catapulted her to overnight stardom and dubbed her as a ‘national crush’. According to a NewsX report, she even became the most searched person on Google for a brief duration.
The song titled has amassed 4.7 million views in less than 2 days with the video and its star has captured the hearts and imaginations of hundreds and thousands of people.
Following the clip going viral, the actress in question — Priya Prakash Varrier — has become an online sensation. Her face has not only been replicated across memes and photos, but one can easily call her the face of India’s Valentine’s Day celebrations this year. While Varrier’s video from the film is breaking the Internet, another video of her singing Channa Mereya has resurfaced. In this, she beautifully croons the song from the 2017 Ranbir Kapoor- Anushka Sharma-starrer film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and has our heart (again).
After shooting to fame in just a day, Priya Prakash Varrier soon joined Twitter and Instagram. Not surprisingly, Priya has gained 17k followers (and counting) on Twitter already.
