If you’re an active Facebook or Twitter user, then you’ve probably come across the girl on the cover image above. Many Pakistanis have been wondering who this girl is and how her little wink became an internet sensation. This is all you need to know about the girl.
Priya Prakash Varrier turned into an overnight sensation when a teaser clip of Manikya Malaraya Poovi, from her upcoming film Oru Adaar Love, was shared on social media last week, sending the entire Internet into a meltdown. The clip shows Priya, dressed in school uniform, winking at a fellow student, who, like social media, is instantly floored.
Still a college student, Priya has been studying B.Com at Vimalla College in Kerala, and having aspired to become an actress, she will be appearing in her first movie, but from the response her wink has been getting, we assume it won’t be her last. Still only twenty, Priya was in utter disbelief when she received overnight fame.
Thanks for Oru Adaar Love, I am stunned by the Over whelming Support across Social Media. Never knew my debut could be a National Trend #PriyaPrakashVarrier. Grateful to Omar Lulu Sir. Realized already so many twitter accounts of mine doing rounds.

After the teaser was released, her name’s hashtag became the seventh most trending thing in India.
She is also said to have broken records in the process. She became the third most popular Instagram user after their first day of joining, having amassed over 600,000 followers within twenty four hours, behing Kendell Jenner and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Pakistanis also became insanely fond of Priya, and thus, the meme making brigade became active, creating meme after meme after meme..
And people have every reason to be going gaga over her!
