With just one wink and an eyebrow dance, Mallu youngster Priya Varrier became a sensation across the nation in no time. Even Instagram saw her star power as she amassed almost 600K followers on a single which is a record of sorts at the international level.
But it looks like fame doesn’t come easy and it also brings all sorts of troubles. A case is lodged today morning on Priya Varrier in Falaknama Police station in Hyderabad. The complainants, some Muslims from Hyderabad, claimed that Priya has insulted and outraged their feelings with her expressions for the song.
They have no problems with Priya’s looks and expressions, but the lyric of the song they used seems to have troubled them. It is being said that the song Manikya Malaraavi Poovi is a traditional song being sung by Malabar regions’ Muslims during festival times. They believe that this song emphasises the deep love between Prophet Mohammad and his wife Lady Khadijah and it has holy significance.
Hyderabad’s Farooq Nagar based Muslim youth are said to be upset that a song of greatest spiritual and religious link is now being used for a love story made on youngsters. That’s the reason the case is lodged.
Directed by Omar Lulu, Priya Varrier is one of the leading ladies of the film “Oru Adaar Love” which has this particular song featured in it.
