Fame travels through unexpected lanes. An unknown face till just the other day Priya Prakash Varrier is now being talked about as a candidate for Bollywood. Apparently Karan Johar is keen to sign the winking sensation as the female lead opposite Ranveer Singh in Rohit Shetty’s Simmba where Ranveer stars as a cop.
Says a source, “The girl’s role is not so big in the film. But Priya has become an overnight craze with the wink of an eye. Bollywood is interested in her. And who better equipped to consolidate Priya’s supremacy in the virtual world in the arena of cinema than Karan Johar?”
Apparently the girl whose life and career has turned around in the blink (wink?) of an eye is a fan of Ranveer Singh. Rohit Shetty is known to bring South India’s female stars to his masculine cinema. Kajal Aggarwal was brought in Singham and Anushka Shetty was the first choice for Singham 2.
