In the video, Priya revealed that she was always crazy about acting. In fact, she'd auditioned for a role when she was in class 12 but gave it up to focus on her board examination.
"When I auditioned for this movie, I was told this was for a junior role. I am glad you all liked my video. Hope you will continue to support me," the model-actor added.
