Actress Priya Prakash Varrier, who became popular for her iconic wink in the Malayalam movie ‘Oru Adaar Love’ and became a national crush, has spoke up about the social media trolling.
Speaking to Pinkvilla, Priya said “These people tend to forget that even though you are a public figure, we all have a personal life. We all are simple human beings at the end of the day and you live a normal life like any other and that’s the thing they tend to forget. I don’t think so you can always be responsible for posting some stuff on Instagram and I am a person who keeps herself with no filters on Instagram. I show my vulnerable, happy self so I think, people should start normalizing all these. You can’t always be well-guarded and be how others want you to be. Talking about trolls, I have faced a lot in 3 years and I have become numb to it. I just take positives and ignore others”.
While Priya was on her vacation in Russia, bits and parts of her friend Sharan’s vlog with friends were being shared all over the social media.
Speaking about the same, Priya told “I feel being a public figure, you have ten thousand eyes on you all the time. It was a very funny log but if you are following Sharan’s content, you will know what kind of videos he makes, what kind of vlogs he does, and how we prepare for the video and how it is set already. So when you are circulating something out of that out of context, and you are giving other headline to it, which were misleading people…I have friends and family of mine who are sending me these. If you watch all these vlogs, you will know what’s happening. I think it was very unnecessary to put it out there and tell people what it is actually”.
Priya’s iconic wink in the Malayalam film ‘Oru Adaar Love’ went viral on social media and she became the India’s most-searched-for celebrity on Google in 2018.
