Teenage sensation Priya Varrier became an overnight Internet star after the video song ‘Manikya Malaraya Poovi’ from the forthcoming Omar Lulu directorial Oru Adaar Love became viral.
The young actress is already a darling of the social media and she has even overtaken the silver screen heart throb Dulquer Salman to become the Malayali actor with the highest number of followers on Instagram.
Prakash Varrier, Priya’s father, revealed that she still doesn’t have the permission to use mobile phones. Even though the youngster carries a phone, it doesn’t have a SIM card in it to make calls.
Prakash Varrier said, “There is no SIM card in the phone that Priya carries. We are yet to allow her to make calls using a mobile phone. Priya receives her calls in her mother’s mobile phone.” Priya’s father added that the young star is allowed to browse the Internet using mobile phone only where the Internet hot spot is active.
“When Priya’s video became viral, one of my co-workers send me her video clip. I asked him whether he knew who she was. He replied that he didn’t know who it was. When I told him that the girl in the video is my daughter, he went speechless for a while. I could say that he may have been stunned to know that,” says Prakash Varrier.
Prakash Varrier, an official at the central excise department, said that his daughter was raised like a normal girl, but she had different tastes and ambitions. The proud father added that Priya was always interested in music and dance as well.
