Oviya had established herself as one of the most popular contestants from the first season of the reality show. An actress from Kerala, Oviya has featured in Tamil and Malayalam films. Soon after her stint in Bigg Boss, Oviya emerged as a huge crowd favourite, with lakhs of fans in Tamil Nadu voting for her and calling themselves ‘Oviya Army’. She was also known for being an outspoken contestant, who didn’t shy away from professing her love for fellow contestant Arav.
Oviya quit the show a few weeks before the finals citing issues to do with her mental health. She has since signed a few films including 90ML, directed by Anitha Udeep. She will also be seen in Muni 4: Kanchana 3, Kalavani 2, Ganesha Meendum Santhipom, and Silukkuvarupatti Singam.
There are also reports stating that Oviya and former contestant Snehan might pair up for a film soon. The movie is said to be directed by Ganesh Babu and produced by Sri Vishnu Creations.
Bigg Boss Tamil season 2 will once again be hosted by actor and upcoming politician Kamal Haasan. The reality show’s contestants are yet to be revealed but reports state that it might include a popular 90s actress, another popular dancer in films, as well as Kasthuri Shankar. This is yet to be confirmed though.
