The Priya Prakash Varrier Effect: Katrina Kaif Is Also, Accidentally, Viral
Not only is Malayalam actress Priya Prakash Varrier now sensationally viral (if you need to be told why, where have you been this past weekend?), so is a tweet about her - and Bollywood star Katrina Kaif. Katrina has found herself unwittingly sucked into the eddy after she was invoked in a tweet comparing her unfavorably to the younger actress. Priya, for those of you, don't know, has captured the imagination of the social media-using section of the nation because of a film clip in which she winks and smiles at a co-star. Countless tweets and memes have been posted about Priya, including one from a user that reads: "Priya Prakash Varrier gave all types of expression in that two minutes that Katrina Kaif couldn't give in her entire Bollywood career."
The tweet has been 'liked' nearly 6,000 times and has almost 2,500 retweets. But despite the number of people who clearly seem to agree with the (male) user who posted the tweet, several responses in the comments thread have denounced him for his random targeting of Katrina, on whose behalf Twitter has mounted a spirited defense. One tweet asked: "Why is it important to acknowledge one person at the cost of being demeaning to others?" Another said: "I think the comparison was unnecessary."
This is the tweet:
Gross generalization. Humour should be refreshing, not degrading. — Ukhrah Malik (@ukhrahmalik) February 12, 2018
I bet she can... thatz the point... we need to move away from the criteria of flat abs and sexy figure for an actress and think about acting as the primary skill for an actress ! — saran (@saran_tweet) February 13, 2018
Lagta hai ek actress ke bare me kuch zyada hi sochta hai This is very rude of you bhai #Katrinakaif has given everything to the industry and you are saying this Achi tarah se phele uski movies dekh le She is nominated twice for filmfare — Harry mittal (@Harrymittal4) February 12, 2018The film clip that has caused such a nuclear reaction online is from a song titled Manikya Malaraya Poovi belonging to new Malayalam film Oru Adaar Love. It shows Priya Prakash Varrier, playing a school student, winking and smiling at a fellow student, played by Mohammed Roshan, who is instantly smitten.
