Who would have thought that with just a wink, Priya Prakash Varrier will go on to become an overnight internet sensation. She has been on a record breaking spree ever since a clip of her song Manikya Malaraya Poovi (from the film Oru Adaar Love, directed by Omar Lulu) has gone viral. While the boys have been watching the video on loop dreaming to go on a date with Priya, girls have been trying to imitate her. Earlier today, we told you that she recorded more than 605k followers on Instagram in just 24 hours, and became the third celebrity in the world to have more than 600k followers on a single day after Kylie Jenner and legendary footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo, who had 806K followers and 650K followers respectively by the end of the day they joined Instagram.
And now the song has managed to break the record on YouTube by crossing more than 9 million views. No other song in Mollywood has managed to achieve this feat.
