Her popularity shot up so much that Priya Prakash Varrier managed to beat Sunny Leone to become Google's most searched actress in the month of February 2018. Can you believe it?
Priya Varrier hails from Poonkunnam city from Kerala.
Priya Varrier is a B.com student of Vimala College, which is a girls-only college. So, shooting for Oru Adaar Love was a different experience for the newbie.
Priya Varrier was auditioned for a short role in the film Oru Adaar Love. It so happened that the director - Omar Ikka - saw the rushes of the schoolboy she winks at, Roshan Abdul Rahoof, and Priya and he felt they were cute together.
An impressed Omar then asked Roshan to do the eyebrow act and also asked Priya if she could do it as well. That's how they shot the viral sequence, which wasn't even planned. Spontaneous scenes sometimes work magic and this was the best example.
Priya Varrier made her entry into the world of fashion with a programme on Mathrubhumi Kappa TV.
Priya Prakash Varrier's popularity broke all records as the pretty girl received around 6 lakh followers on Instagram in merely one day.
Priya Prakash Varrier's growing popularity got her Instagram account verified in no time.
As of September 12, 2019, Priya Varrier has 7.3 million+ followers on Instagram.
Talking about the song Manikya Malaraya Poovi, where the eye-winking sequence got famous, it's a Mappila paattu, a song sung by Muslims of the Malabar region during religious or other occasions. Manikya Malaraya Poovi song is about the love story of the Prophet Muhammad and his wife, Khadeeja.
Priya is also a trained Mohiniyattam dancer, perhaps that helped her give beautiful expressions.
Before foraying into the film industry, Priya Varrier had walked the ramp for several events and fashion shows also.
Priya Prakash Varrier will soon make her Bollywood debut with Sridevi Bungalow. The film generated controversy a while back when producer Boney Kapoor, husband of late superstar Sridevi, sent a legal notice to the makers of the film, objecting to the film's title as well as a scene that reportedly shows a character named Sridevi's death in a bathtub, much the same way the eighties actress Sridevi died in February 2018.
Thanks to her newly gained popularity, Priya has already bagged numerous brand endorsements for popular brands.

Priya has said that she is keen to do more Hindi films in the future.
