Priya Prakash Varrier reportedly approached for Telugu debut by multiple producers including Dil Raju
Producer Dil Raju, among other biggies, has reportedly approached Malayalam actress Priya Prakash Varrier for her debut in the Telugu film industry opposite a huge star.
International Business Times reports that top Telugu producers and directors want to sign her for a couple of big Telugu films, Dil Raju, who is making films with big stars like Sharwanand, Nithiin and Nani, wants to cast her opposite one of the top heroes. Similarly, UV Creations who are also making big films, want to sign her, as stated in the same report.
But the actress is reportedly under a one year contract because of which she is legally bound to not sign any other film. Thus, the Telugu producers' efforts to sign her, and cash in on her social media popularity, may just be in vain.
Recently, there were a slew of criminal complaints filed against Priya for hurting religious sentiments through her song 'Manikya Malaraya Poovi' from the Malayalam movie Oru Adaar Love. However, she has approached Supreme Court and filed a plea against the case registered in Telangana saying that it is against freedom of speech and expression. The hearing of this matter will take place on Wednesday in the Supreme Court.
