Priya Prakash Varrier (born 28 October 1999) is an Indian actress, model, and playback singer who works in Telugu and Malayalam films. Her wink[3] in the film Oru Adaar Love went viral, making her the most-searched-for personality through Google in India in 2018.[4][5][6][7]

Early life[edit]

Priya was born on 28 October 1999 to Prakash Varrier, a Central Excise Department employee and Preetha, a homemaker at Punkunnam, Thrissur in Kerala.[1] She attended school at Sandeepani Vidya Nikethan, Thrissur.[8][9] In 2018, she enrolled in Bachelor of Commerce course at Vimala College, Thrissur.[8]

Films[edit]

She played the role of Priya in the 2019 movie Oru Adaar Love, a romantic drama set in a school.[10] The official teaser on YouTube, which includes Priya winking, had received over 30 million views as of April 2022. Her wink was said to have gone viral.[11] The song "Manikya Malaraya Poovi" from Oru Adaar Love was deemed to be offensive by some Muslims, as the lyrics reference Khadijah, the wife of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. A first information report relating to this was filed against Priya and the film's creators, and subsequently rejected by the Supreme Court of India.[11][12]

In 2019 the song "Nee Mazhavillu Polen," which she sings with Naresh Iyer for the film Finals which starred Rajisha Vijayan in the lead role was released.[13] She was cast in the Hindi film Sridevi Bungalow, which was in production as of January 2020.[14]
