Ever since she became a nationwide sensation, there have been several rumors about she being cast opposite big stars.
Director Omar Lulu who is introducing Priya with his film ‘Oru Adaar Love’ had recently confirmed that she was offered a role in Bollywood star Ranveer Singh’s upcoming movie Simmba. Rohit Shetty is directing the movie and Karan Johar is backing it. Apparently, they are keen to launch Priya in Bollywood but the teenage actress has not yet taken call on it.
