The upcoming film of Priya Prakash Varrier’s ‘Sridevi Bungalow’ is in big trouble because Boney Kapoor slapped a notice on film. After releasing the first teaser of Sridevi Bungalow, the movie is in a vortex of controversy.
An Internet sensation Priya Prakash Varrier known as wink girl is back with her debut in Bollywood. Her wink and eyebrow game in a song from Malayalam movie Oru Adar Love made her an internet sensation. Now, the young girl is set to enter into Bollywood but it’s not a smooth sail.
The 1-minute-49-seconds long teaser of Sridevi Bungalow depicts Priya Prakash Varrier as a lonely person who died in a bathtub. It’s similar to Sridevi, she died last year in a bathtub at Dubai hotel.
Interestingly the film’s director, Prasanth Mambully confirmed the news of receiving a legal notice against Sridevi Bungalow. He said, “we received a legal notice last week. My film is a suspense thriller and we will face it. I told Boney Kapoor that Sridevi is a common name. And my film’s character happens to be an actress.”
Retaliating to what Boney Kapoor clearly sees the film as infringing and mockery upon his late wife’s life. Well, the teaser of Sridevi Bungalow believed to be a reference to the Sridevi’s tragic end. The teaser shows Priya Prakash Varrier lying in a bath-tub.
According to sources, Boney Kapoor will take every legal step against this sleazy film. For now, he has sent the strongly-worded legal notice to film’s producers and director.
While the winking girl, Priya has refused to comment on the film whether it is based on the actress Sridevi or not. Priya’s father also refused to say anything on the legal notice as it’s the responsibility of director and producers to address this issue.
For anyone, a sleazy portrayal of his wife is unacceptable. If the film is based on Sridevi’s life, Boney Kapoor will not rest easy.
