Priya Prakash and Roshan Abdul Rahoof feature in the viral song, where there was a demand that the girl has to wink in a song. While talking to ABP news, Priya said that, “The director has demanded a wink in a song and he have shot the scene in a one shot. We have not practiced for the scene. The whole scene was shot in one take.”

Kidu Producer Sabu PK shared a video message on Facebook stating that the film shooting and editing were made before the ‘Oru Adaar Love’. Thus, it was claimed that the scene was copied from the film.

In the video Sabu is seen saying, “After watching the song from my film Kidu, many have been saying that it has been copied from Oru Adaar Love. It’s not right. Achu Vijayan is the editor of Kidu and Oru Adaar Love. My film’s shooting was completed on November 25 (2017) and in January first week, the editing was done”.

“It is only after finishing our film, Achu Vijayan started to work on Oru Adaar Love. That song was also shot after this. So, we are the ones who should accuse them (Oru Adaar Love filmmakers) of copying it from us. We don’t have any intentions of copying from others,” he added.
