One of the oldest forms of cute love gesture or rather when you want to convey your adulation/love for anybody is giving a naughty wink or blowing a flying kiss. The charm of this old-world gesticulation is still intact. And the best example to serve its popularity is the latest sensation the 18-year old Priya Prakash Varrier’s gestures that did wonders across the nation.
The mere 30 seconder clip from the 3.17 minute trailer of Malayalam film ORU ADAAR LOVE, where Priya locks gazes, raises brows and winks with a cute smile, at a classmate, flooring him, made her an overnight star. From being no one, Priya has become a sensation, a ‘National crush’ and a heartthrob of many that too in one single day with mass following, a series of memes floating on the internet, exaggerating likes, etc. Reports have it that only Kylie Jenner and Cristiano Ronaldo have added more users on a social networking site in a single day, a feat which our Bollywood beauties could or couldn’t achieve even after spending years in the industry, shedding inhibitions or flaunting their fab bodies.
It’s not for the first time an actress in India has winked or blew a flying kiss on-screen but divas like, Aishwarya Rai, Deepika Padukone, Madhuri Dixit, Kareena Kapoor Khan, etc had done this before but no one has received such a fancy of the people like our dear Priya Prakash Varrier!
As we adore & admire Priya’s lovely gestures, we also take a look at other actresses who have swayed us over the years (but of course did not scale the popularity chart as our pretty petite Priya did the trick):
Juhi Chawla’s seductive avatar in this song was a revelation, especially the wink
Anushka Sharma can emote plethora of emotions with ease.
Again, Kriti Sanon, who played a bindaas girl in BAREILLY KI BARFI, it well suited her persona.
Since Kareena Kapoor Khan played a ‘chulbuli’ Geet in JAB WE MET, her flirty gesture well suited her character
Madhuri Dixit has ever been known for her expressive eyes and gestures. In fact her eye gesture in one of the songs of her film RAJA was indeed loved by all.
Deepika Padukone indeed made quite a few men go weak in their knees with her naughtiness in GOLIYON KI RAASLEELA: RAM LEELA.
Ever since Aishwarya Rai Bachchan came in limelight, the green-eyed beauty has been known for her warm Namaste and a sexy wink!
