The one who swooned the hearts of many by just a wink, Priya Prakash Varrier is finally ready to make her Bollywood debut with the film Sridevi Bunglow.
It was through the simple act of young love in her debut Malayalam movie ‘Oru Adaar Love‘, that Priya Prakash Varrier took away millions of hearts in a span of a wink. However, seems like her Bollywood debut isn’t getting much positive response as it definitely is getting more negativity for insensitive.
The issue became insensitive and controversial when the teaser of her film portrayed a similar death scene as that of the late superstar, as Sridevi had died of accidental drowning in the bathtub during her stay in Dubai. Apparently, even the loner actress’ (Priya’s role) death in Sridevi Bunglow is similar to late Superstar Sridevi.
However, it is portrayed in a highly disturbing manner, which can make you feel disgusted. A scene in the teaser shows the actress lying in a bathtub with only her feet visible.

While the makers have been maintaining the statement that it doesn’t have any relation to the legendary superstar. Even a layman will be able to derive the similarities in-between these two stories. However, this extremely insensitive portrayal has brought Boney Kapoor, husband of late Sridevi, to take legal action against the makers of Sridevi Bunglow.
Moreover, while interacting with the media, Priya on being asked about her role and its relation to Legendary Sridevi, she replied, “You have to watch the film and decide if its a story related to her not.” Talking about her role she further said, “I will be playing the role of lady superstar Sridevi in the film.”
In an interaction, the Director Prashant Mambully states, “I cannot talk about the film,” the director told a leading portal. “That is something you will know when the film is released. Sridevi is a character, an actress, in my film.”
Asked if the film was based on the late actress, he said, “The character’s name is Sridevi. Anybody can be called Sridevi. The story can have certain incidents which happened in Sridevi’s life. This is a suspense thriller. I can’t talk more about the film.”

Moreover, receiving a legal notice from Boney Kapoor, he says, “We received a legal notice from Mr Boney Kapoor last week, and we will face it. I want to say that my film is a suspense thriller. I told him [Kapoor] that Sridevi is a common name. My character also happens to be an actress.”
Well, we do hope that the makers are ready to tackle more of an onslaught of criticism and questioning over this same topic even in the future!
