From going viral with a "wink" on social media to becoming one of the dominant actors in Malayalam and Telugu films, Priya Prakash Varrier is an actress, model, and playback singer. Born and brought up in Kerala, Varrier made a debut in the movie 'Oru Adaar Love' in 2019. It was a romantic drama set in a school.
