On the occasion of Valentine’s Day, independent MLA from Gujarat, Jignesh Mevani, took a dig at Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) by using internet sensation Priya Prakash Varrier’s viral video ‘Manikya Malaraya Poovi' from film 'Oru Adaar Love'.
On Wednesday, Mevani tweeted that the viral hit of ‘Manikya Malaraya Poovi’ is the answer to RSS's Valentine’s Day protest.
He further said that Indians have proved they like to love more than hating someone.
Mevani also shared the viral clip and told his followers to ‘enjoy this beautiful video’.

Earlier in the day, the Hyderabad Police registered a First Information Report (FIR) under Section 295A (act intended to outrage religious feelings) against Omar Lulu, the director of ‘Oru Adaar Love’, after the song 'Manikya Malaraya Poovi' from his film allegedly hurt religious sentiments.
A group of Muslim youth had also filed a complaint at Falaknuma Police Station in Hyderabad against internet’s latest sensation and Malayalam actor Priya Prakash Varrier and the makers of the song 'Manikya Malaraya Poovi'.
The complaint says the song 'Manikya Malaraya Poovi', when translated into English, allegedly insults the Prophet.
Speaking to Republic TV earlier, Omar Lulu had reacted to the complaint against Priya and said, “The song is a traditional song from Kerala. We sing it in functions like weddings. We just revisited the song. There is no issue.”
When asked if he had a message for those criticising the song ’Manikya Malaraya Poovi', Lulu told Republic TV, “Love beyond borders is the message of the song.”
Malayalam actor Priya Prakash Varrier has become internet’s new sensation ever since the song 'Manikya Malaraya Poovi' from her upcoming debut film 'Oru Adaar Love' released. A short video clip from the track, where Priya is seen raising her eyebrows and winking at a boy (played by Roshan Abdul Rahoof), went viral online.
