It seems, controversy will not leave the South Indian actress and ‘Wink Sensation’ Priya Prakash Varrier. Since her debut in the Malayalam movie ‘Oru Adaar Love’, the actress has encountered controversies a number of times. The strife even got stronger with the announcement of ‘Sridevi Bungalow’ as the name signifies the Legendary actress Sridevi.
The controversy stirred more with the release of the movie’s first teaser.
The last scene featured in the teaser shows a bathtub and a drowning shot which resembles the death incident of the legendary actress Sridevi.
The movie’s title and the last scene featured in the teaser drew everyone’s attention and the makers have invited trouble for themselves as well as Priya Prakash.
Late actress Sridevi’s husband, producer Boney Kapoor had earlier slapped the makers a legal notice for using his wife’s name in the film title. Now, the situation has even worsened after Boney Kapoor saw the first look of the teaser.
Boney has reportedly issued a restraining order against the movie makers following the release of the teaser.
Desi Martini quoted a source saying, "He is disgusted by all those who have chosen to be associated with this lurid project. When he heard the film’s title and saw the first look, Boney had sent a legal notice to the producer. But so far they’ve ignored the notice. Boney intends to take even more strict legal action, asking for a restraining order against using Sridevi’s name in the title. They can make what they like — it’s a free world. But they can’t use that name."
A few days back, at a press meet when Priya was asked about her concern on the controversies surrounding the film, Priya had said, “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. 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."
Boney Kapoor has been raising voice against the movie since the announcement of the title, however the makers have been ignoring the same. And now, it seems the controversy is getting more and more messed up. Hope, the makers will soon find a solution to the controversy and Priya Prakash Varrier will smoothly make her debut in Bollywood.
