Priya Prakash Varrier is all set to make her Bollywood debut with 'Sridevi Bungalow'. The film's teaser already came out and received flak for depicting scenes that implied parallels between the character and late veteran actress Sridevi. After the controversial teaser, things have escalated on a legal level as Boney Kapoor has now gone after the makers of the film.
B-town producer Boney Kapoor, who is the late actress' husband, has sent a legal notice to the makers of 'Sridevi Bungalow'. The reason is pretty obvious, for the film has way too many parallels with the late actress' life especially the way she met her demise, by drowning accidentally in the bathtub. The teaser even has a similar scene in it, making it more than enough reason for Kapoor to take legal action against the makers.
Moreover, the director of the film Prasanth Mambully has confirmed that they have received a legal notice but they are unfazed. He said that they will fight the legal case and he has already clarified to the producer that Sridevi is a common name and that it is a coincidence the character in his film is also an actress. It remains to be seen how the whole issue now pans out. Take a look at the controversial teaser of the film here:
In the meantime, Priya who is famously known as the 'wink girl', made an appearance in Mumbai during a special screening of Vicky Kaushal's 'Uri: The Surgical Strike'. At the event, the actress met Vicky and recreated a famous scene from her Malayalam film 'Oru Adaar Love'. She also met Ranveer Singh and took a selfie with him. Priya had already mentioned that he is the one actor she really wants to work with.
