Rishi Kapoor praised Priya Prakash Varrier but had one question -- why didn’t you come in my heydays?

Twitter comments of Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor mostly get him into trouble but this once, he has made Priya Prakash Varrier and her millions of fans very happy. The veteran actor is so impressed with internet’s latest sensation that he predicted “huge stardom” for her and even lamented the fact that she wasn’t there during his time! And Priya took no time to reply that she was honoured to receive the compliment from the “prince of romance” himself.

Taking to Twitter late Friday, Rishi wrote, “I predict huge Stardom for this girl. Priya Warrier. So expressive,coy coquettish yet innocent. My dear Priya, you 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? Lol.”

Priya replied, “It’s an absolute honor to be praised by the “Prince of Romance “The sort of mettle and mantle your aura infers in every artists existence will always be beyond common contention .”

Priya became an overnight internet sensation with her song, Mani Manikya Malaraya Poovi from her debut film Oru Adaar Love. The song, ‘Manikya Malaraya Poovi’, featuring Priya Prakash Varrier, has gone viral on social media.

Not just Rishi, she has impressed South African speedster Lungi Ngidi, who famously took 6 wickets in the second Test against India recently. As a Twitter user shared a meme featuring Priya Prakash and Ngidi, the bowler tweeted back saying he has found someone for Valentine’s day. “Valentine’s Day done,” he had written.

Priya and her co-star Roshan Abdul Rahoof are seen doing a see-saw with their eyebrows before Varrier surprises him with a wink and a flirtatious smile in the song video. Varrier has credited Roshan for creating the moment by tweaking his eyebrows first. “I would like to be known as a good actor rather than being known as the wink queen. This is a new feeling. But I am happy. The song has received good response.Our director told us that the 30-second shot should be a memorable one and we followed his vision. I never expected that it would become such a big hit. It is a school-centric film. We are discussing love, crushes and friendship. Love in the time of schooling is the theme of the film,” Priya had said.

Thank you for all the love and support💙
