Priya is debuting in the Malayalam film Oru Adaar Love directed by Omar Lulu. The film released a song titled Manikya Malaraya Poovi on YouTube. The song features Priya and her viral facial expressions. The video has already gotten over 8 lakh views and 258,000 likes.
The overnight fame led to her being sent away by her family. The director strictly stated no interviews with his cast till the film is released. Priya’s family responded to the media and said she would not be available to give a statement.
Just a wink and smile from Priya gave way for highly imaginative memes and jokes. Some are smitten by the new actress and have dubbed her as the new national crush.
