Recently, with big headlines, continuous channel scrolls and social media trolls, Malayalam cinema celebrated its multi-million box office earners. Amid all the claps and whistles, one midnight, someone walked silently into a 10 million club. Guess who and what we are talking about? Actor Miya George is now the most enviable crorepati in M-Town. Not in terms of money, but the love and affection of her fans and well-wishers weigh a crore, as Facebook likes. Miya has become the first among celebrities from the industry to get 1 core Facebook likes.
As soon as it crossed the big number, Miya went Live on Facebook to thank the ‘likers’ from the location of Sherlock Toms in Kochi. Nazriya Nazim, who has taken a sabbatical from acting after marriage, is in the second position with more than 76 lakh likes. Why is that she is being ‘liked’ a lot? “My chechi asked the same question when she came to know about it. ‘The Facebook calculator has gone wrong it seems, I replied” she breaks into laughter. “I have heard, for girls, it is easy to get more Facebook likes,” she says.
Miya feels, the love from Kollywood and Tollywood also reflects in this achievement. “The number of likes had steadily gone up after 60 lakhs. I have just started doing Tamil and Telugu films then.” In her Live video, Miya did not forget to thank her Tamil and Telugu fans. Congratulatory messages are raining in on her WhatsApp and Miya happily acknowledges them before rejoining the sets of Sherlock Toms, which stars Biju Menon in the lead. In Malayalam, she just completed Bobby and in Telugu, she is awaiting the release of Ungarala Rambabu.
