Debutante and budding actress Priya Prakash Varrier, who took the netizens by storm with a wink, is celebrating her 19th birthday on Wednesday. It was surreal to see the massive popularity she earned through her song. The Internet had gone crazy on a viral Malayalam song, Manikya Malaraya Poovi from the film Oru Ardaar Love, which featured a teenage boy and a girl, who express their love for each other through their eyes.

The winks and their eyebrow-conversation is something that the social media couldn't stop gushing about. Netizens went crazy behind Priya's smile and created dozens of memes on it. But, who is this girl Priya?

Priya has got more to her than just being called the 'Wink Girl'. She is also a model, who was initially supposed to do a small role in the Malayalam film, but thanks to her acting chops, she bagged the film's lead role. The magic of wink was so powerful that she became a huge sensation even before Oru Adaar Love's release.
