Priya Prakash Varrier defends herself on Sridevi Bungalow row
Overnight star Priya Prakash Varrier, who is set to make her Bollywood debut with Sridevi Bungalow, said she is simply portraying the role she was given and the controversy around the film is the concern for director and producer.
Sridevi Bungalow generated controversy when yesteryear actress Sridevi's husband Boney Kapoor sent a legal notice to the makers of the film, objecting to the film's title and a scene that shows a character's death in a bathtub, much the same way the eighties actress Sridevi died in February 2018.
"It is actually the director's and the producer's concern because I am just portraying a character they gave me. Intentionally it was not on our agenda to hurt anyone's personal feelings," Priya said to media on Monday.
"I don't think we should let any negativity affect us because I am just starting my career in films. I am also a very big fan of Sridevi madam and though there was no intention to hurt anybody, we all know that controversies keep happening," she added.
"I have actually signed a second movie in Hindi called Love Hackers. It is about cyber crime. As far as working in more Hindi films is concerned, if good offers come my way then I will definitely love to do them," the actress said.
