Mumbai, Feb 17: Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor is impressed by the “expressive” and “innocent” Priya Prakash Varrier. He has predicted a bright future for the 18-year-old, who became an internet sensation with a wink and a shy but mischievous smile in a music video.
Rishi Kapoor even went on to lament as to why the ‘expressive, coy, and coquettish’ Priya Prakash Varrier wasn’t there around in his time.
“I predict huge Stardom for this girl. Priya Varrier. So expressive, coy, coquettish, yet innocent. My dear Priya, you (are) going to give all others in your age group a run for their money. God bless and the best to you! Mere time mein naheen ayeen aap! Kyon? (You didn’t come in my time! Why) Lol,” Rishi, 65, tweeted.
