Now, Priya has spoken about the controversy. Yes about the complaint in Hyderabad and Muslims objecting to the song and the religious sentiments. While speaking to a leading channel, she said that the song in question is not a romantic number but comes across as one as it is quite soothing.
“It is not a romantic song. It is usually sung on Muslim occasions. It is not a totally romantic song but being as soothing as it is, it makes it romantic,” she added.
Well, this quite a mature answer and proves that she is not keen to court controversy in any way, whatsoever.
The Manikya Malaraya Poovi song has been composed by Thalassery K Refeeque and recreated by top composer Shaan Rahman. Vineeth Sreenivasan has crooned it like a boss and added a new dimension to it.
The video revolves around two lovers and is set in a college/school setting. In it, the sweethearts can be seen exchanging shy glances at each other and making us believe in the power of love. The highlight of the video clearly is Priya’s wink.
