The Wink girl Priya Varrier, who shook the internet with her eyebrow game in the Malayalam song, ‘Manikya Malaraya Poovi’, has grabbed the eyeballs all over again for her new upcoming film ‘Sridevi Bungalow’.
Her film’s teaser was released on Sunday, that is 13th January 2019 and since then it’s under fire for portraying a female superstar’s death in a bathtub. The 1 minute 49 seconds teaser of the film ‘Sridevi Bungalow’ shows the life of a lonely actress and the most noticing part was the end, where they showed that an actress died in a bathtub, with is a frightening reminder of how the legendary actress Sridevi expired last year after fortuitously drowning in a bathtub. Her death had left the entire nation in shock.
Now, after watching the teaser of this film, Sridevi’s husband and a profound producer Boney Kapoor has now sent a legal notice to the makers of the film. Prasanth Mambully, the director of the film gave his confirmation to this in an interview by saying,
“We received a legal notice from Mr. Boney Kapoor last week. And we will face it. My film is a suspense thriller. I told him (Boney Kapoor) that Sridevi is a common name. My film’s character also happens to be an actress. We will face it (the legal case).”
The name and teaser of the film surely have more or fewer similarities with the legendary actress Sridevi. So, Boney Kapoor has put charges on the makers of the film by saying, that they haven’t taken permissions for using her name and showing similarities of his late wife’s life in their film.
When asked to the actress of the film, Priya, she refused to either accept or deny whether the film is directly or indirectly based on Sridevi’s life or not. Her father too had denied commenting on the issue by saying that it was for the director and producers to address.
On the other hand, interacting with the media at the teaser launch of her new film Sridevi Bungalow on Sunday, she was asked about which movie she wanted to do in recent times. She said,
“I wanted to become a part of ‘Simmba’. There were lots of rumors that I was part of ‘Simmba’ but I wish that was true because I am a great fan of Ranveer Singh.”
Last week, Priya was spotted in a special screening of Vicky Kaushal’s recent film URI – The surgical strike, amongst some Bollywood sensations like Varun Dhawan, Katrina Kaif, Hrithik Roshan, Ranveer singh and Rohit Shetty.
She also told the reporters,
“At the screening of ‘Uri’, I told Ranveer that ‘I am a big fan of yours’ and then he told me that ‘I really liked your wink’ which was overwhelming for me.”
Her selfies with Vicky Kaushal and Ranveer Singh are getting viral on the internet and some rumors also suggests that she may be a part of Karan Johar’s periodic drama Takht, which stars both Ranveer Singh and Vicky Kaushal.
