Wink girl Priya Varrier moves to Supreme Court

Priya Prakash Varrier will always remain the girl who floored the nation with that wink.

Even Rishi Kapoor was hooked. "I predict huge stardom for this girl. Priya Varrier. So expressive, coy, coquettish, yet innocent. My dear Priya, you (are) going to give all others in your age group a run for their money. God bless and the best to you! Mere time mein naheen ayeen aap! Kyon? (Why did you not come in my time?) Lol," the 65-year-old had tweeted.

As the whole of India knows, the Oru Adaar Love girl has become a rage on the internet too.

After conquering Facebook has come her success on Instagram, where she currently has over 5 million followers.

This fame is said to be earning her big bucks with reports emerging of companies being ready to pay her as much as Rs 8 lakh per post.

Now, Rs 8 lakh is a neither-here-nor-there figure and needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. More so, when it emerges that a video of hers for OnePlus, the smartphone brand, where she announced that five OnePlus 5T were to be given away has already garnered over 6.8 million views.

Here is the post:

Happy Valentine's everyone! My friends at @oneplus_india are giving away 5 OnePlus 5T phones to my fans! Go FOLLOW them right now!!! (Open till 20th Feb)

A post shared by priya prakash varrier (@priya.p.varrier) on

A follow-up video on the final day of the Oneplus giveaway got over 5 million views.

Another promo video for the Hypstar app has over 3 million views.

As of now, we could find only these three posts, which we felt were promotional in nature. Yes, there are the ones on movies, but those seem to be her movies and the only other one seems to be of a friend.

But if the popularity of these posts are anything to go by, a cheque of just Rs 8 lakh per post might not do. Gun for more, Priya!
