Internet sensation; who stole millions off hearts with just one wink in her Malayalam film Oru Adaar Love's romantic track Manikya Malaraya Poovi, Priya Varrier, is making headlines again and this time it is for her Bollywood debut film titled ‘Sridevi Bungalow'.


The film; that is directed by Prasanth Mambully, released its trailer which shows the life of a successful yet loner actress who's named Sridevi. What has enraged fans and netizens alike is that Priya's character in the films dies of drowning in a bathtub; just the way legendary actress Sridevi died last year leaving her fans in shock.


Priya has been mercilessly trolled for the film has received a lot of hatred from her fans and all the fans of Sridevi. The trailer has shown a very distasteful side to the death of the ‘Sadma' actress and this has not gone well with the late actress husband and producer Boney Kapoor.


The wink sensation Priya has finally broken her silence on the controversy, and is quoted saying to a leading daily," Sridevi is just the name of my character in the movie. Who would want to create such controversies? I think the curiosity surrounding the trailer is good and we have to leave it to the audience to judge if the film is based on the veteran actress Sridevi ma'am."


Boney Kapoor has sent a legal notice to the makers of the film; confirming which the film's director has said," In the notice, Boney Kapoor has raised a few objections against our film including the usage of the name and doing a biopic of the actress. He wanted us to alter the name of our movie within 24 hours. We sent him a reply explaining that Sridevi was a common name and there was no logic in objecting to it. It is just a coincidence that my movie tells the tale of an actress named Sridevi."


Defending his movie and supporting Priya; director Prasanth Mambully further said," Like Priya said, we would like to leave it to the audience to decide. The film is a crime-thriller and it is important to maintain the suspense of the story. I cannot walk around and reveal the plot to all. I am a hardcore fan of actress Sridevi and I respect and admire her a lot. But just because she died in a bathtub doesn't mean nobody else won't. Allow us to release the movie and let the people decide."


Sridevi Bungalow is currently in the final stages of filming and is expected to release in April this year.
