Priya added that she is a big fan of Sridevi. “I don’t think we should let any negativity affect us because I am just starting my career in films. I am also a very big fan of Sridevi madam and though there was no intention to hurt anybody, we all know that controversies keep happening.”
Directed by Prasanth Mambully, Sridevi Bungalow had generated controversy a while back. Producer Boney Kapoor, husband of late superstar Sridevi, had sent a legal notice to the makers of the movie, taking objection to title as well as a scene that reportedly shows a character named Sridevi’s death in a bathtub.
Sridevi Bungalow also features Arbaaz Khan and is scheduled to release later this year. Talking about the controversy, Priya said, “It is actually the director’s and the producer’s concern because I am just portraying a character they gave me. Intentionally, it was not on our agenda to hurt anyone’s personal feelings.”
Priya Prakash Varrier became a social media sensation after her wink in a song of the Malayalam film Oru Adaar Love went viral. She became a household name for her wink. Asked if she would like to shed her image of the ‘Wink Girl’, she said, “Definitely I would. That was my first movie and the wink gave me a lot of publicity because everybody liked it. However, if I go on repeating (that action), people will start questioning it. So, I want to do more films and improve myself as an actor.”
“I have actually signed a second movie in Hindi called Love Hackers. It is about cybercrime. As far as working in more Hindi films is concerned, if good offers come my way then I will definitely love to do them,” said Priya.
Love Hackers is directed by Mayank Prakash Srivastava and will be shot in Lucknow, Delhi, Gurgaon, and Mumbai.
