Despite not doing films regularly, Oviya continues to be one of the most popular actresses in Tamil cinema. Her impact in the first season of Bigg Boss Tamil was such. The Tamil masses just fell in love with her bold and wacky personality. Her rumored affair with fellow housemate Arav was also a huge talking point and resulted in the show generating record TRPs. Oviya is now gearing up for the back to back releases of her films - 90ML and Kanchana 3. While 90ML looks like a fun all-girls flick, Kanchana 3 is an extension of the tried and tested Muni horror-comedy franchise. Oviya recently opened up to a leading news daily on her choosy ways, relationship with Arav among other things.
“I and Arav have a good relationship and we support each other. But this is not the time to talk about my relationship status. We both have so much to do in our respective careers. He is focusing on his career and I am concentrating on my work. We care for each other a lot, and I don’t want to call this just friendship. If there’s something, we will announce it openly.”
On some of the other Bigg Boss contestants like Raiza being very prolific with films while she has remained low-key, “My choices are different from theirs. Only if I like something, do I take it up. And I don’t want to compare my journey with the other stars. I am happy for them, though, as they used the opportunity well. I am getting offers and I have zeroed in on a few. But I will sign them after these films (90ML and Kanchana 3) release, to see whether the subjects I have chosen have worked or not.”
