Malayalam actress Priya Prakash Varrier, more popularly known as the ‘wink’ girl, is debuting in Bollywood with a film titled Sridevi Bungalow. The teaser of the film is out and it looks like a mockery of one of the most unfortunate incidents happened to the Hindi film industry. The makers of the film have tried to portray Priya as legendary actress Sridevi. The film appears to be the story of the actress’ starry film journey and how she died by drowning in a bathtub.
The teaser shows Priya looking glamorous as Sridevi. It also shows her character signing an autograph to a kid and revealing that she’s her favourite actress. The makers have not officially announced Sridevi Bungalow as the story on the actress’ real life. However, the teaser leaves no hint out. Watch it here:
Earlier, commenting on the film at the teaser launch event yesterday, on January 13, Priya refused to reveal whether it’s actually a story about Sridevi, the real-life diva. She said, “You have to watch the film and decide if its a story related to her not. I will be playing the role of lady superstar Sridevi in the film”.
She also expressed her desire of being known beyond the tag of the ‘wink girl’ among the audience. Priya said she’s quite new to the industry but she wants to work hard enough for people to know she’s not just a ‘wink girl’. When asked about competing with actresses like Alia Bhatt now that she is making a foray into the Hindi film industry, Priya said, “First of all, I think they are all very senior actors and they are doing their work very well. I just want to do my thing and create a space for myself in this industry. People know me as a wink girl but what I want is that people accept me as an actress as a whole and not just about a wink”.
