The song being referred to is titled ‘Manikya Malaraya Poovi’ from her upcoming Malayalam film Oru Adaar Love. After the song hit the internet, Priya has been getting messages from all her fans, particularly men, asking her out for Valentine’s Day.
Priya’s expressions in the song have become the focal point of the entire buzz. Priya however credits her performance to her director. She says, “The director wanted me to play with my eyebrows in a certain way. It’s a mappila song (rhythmic songs in the north Kerala tradition) that has been recreated for the film. And there’s a scene where this girl and this boy converse through expressions — and the director wanted a certain mannerism. I just followed his instruction”.
It will come as a relief to all her male fans that the young actress is very much single, though fully inclined towards her studies and career. When asked about the same, Priya declared, “There’s no one special in my life. My studies and my dream of becoming an actor are the two focal points of my life. On Valentine’s Day, I’ll have to go to college because attendance is a problem. I’m not thinking much [about getting mobbed] — after all, I go to a girl’s college”.
