MUMBAI – The charm of the internet and the loyal base of followers is a powerful thing. Just a few days after garnering a lot of attention, Priya Prakash Varrier has gained over millions of followers on social media (2.9 million followers on Instgram to be exact).

Priya has left behind many popular Malayalam celebrities such as ‘Baahubali’ actor Anushka Shetty with 2 million followers, actor Duluquer Salmaan with 1.9 million followers, and even international celebrities such as American reality TV star and model Kylie Jenner (806k) and footballer Cristiano Ronaldo (650k).

Talking about her newfound fame, Priya is a bit ‘tensed’: “I’m tensed about that because it is a big responsibility now. People have a lot of expectations from me now. When the movie releases, I hope to keep up with the expectations and do my level best.”

The makers of the film have already started cashing on Priya’s newfound fame (with the video getting over 14 million views).
