The Kalavani actress tried to drown herself in the swimming pool when Arav ignored her in the house. She also professed her love for the model-actor. Two years after the show, Oviya and Arav are being spotted together in several events and parties. Rumors also suggest that the two are dating each other and are in a live-in relationship.
Oviya, in an interview, has cleared the air about her relationship with Arav. She said, “During Bigg Boss, we had our share of disagreement and difference of opinion but now, everything has been sorted out. Arav and I are good friends, we are not in a live-in relationship and the marriage reports are also mere rumors.”

Oviya In Bigg Boss
