Varrier rose to an unprecedented fame after a clip of her winking at a guy — from the upcoming Malayalam film Oru Adaar Love — went viral over social media. In no time, Varrier, from being a simple B Com student at Thrissur’s Vimala College, became the nation's darling.

After the song, a teaser of the film (of an ensemble cast) was also released, focussing majorly on Varrier who is seen gesturing a finger gun to her co-star Roshan Abdul in the film.

A day later, the song 'Manikya Malaraya Poovi' (that contains the wink shot) found itself at the centre of a controversy. Various fringe groups, religious bodies belonging to the Muslim community came out in protest of the song claiming the lyrics of the song, when translated to English are insulting to Prophet Mohammed.
