Her scene, that lasted only 30 seconds in a three-minute video, has made her the nation’s sweetheart. Priya herself had never imagined she would suddenly become a rage in the country. Men and women alike can’t stop drooling over the mischievous gestures made by Priya for her love interest in the movie.

Needless to say, it also made it to most of the prime time shows in news channels. The Quint brings you a spoof of all these channels discussing the viral wink. So when you’re done watching the clip for the zillionth time, watch this fun video too!

(The Quint, in association with BitGiving, has launched a crowdfunding campaign for an 8-month-old who was raped in Delhi on 28 January 2018. The baby girl, who we will refer to as 'Chhutki', was allegedly raped by her 28-year-old cousin when her parents were away. She has been discharged from AIIMS hospital after undergoing three surgeries, but needs more medical treatment in order to heal completely. Her parents hail from a low-income group and have stopped going to work so that they can take care of the baby. You can help cover Chhutki's medical expenses and secure her future. Every little bit counts. Click here to donate.)
