Boyfriends, Affairs and More
Bigg Boss Tamil Season 1, hosted by Kamal Haasan, gained popularity for a lot of reasons. Oviya and Arav’s relationship was one among them. 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
In 2017, She took part in the Tamil reality television show Bigg Boss hosted by Kamal Haasan for the Star Vijay channel. She gained instant popularity on the show through her charm and honesty, in comparison to other housemates. While enjoying a cordial relationship with fellow housemate and eventual winner Arav, which later turned into a one-sided romantic relationship, she was repeatedly targeted and bullied by other housemates including Gayathri Raghuram, Namitha, Juliana, and Shakthi Vasudevan. Her clever responses and positive attitude to the bullying won over audiences.
Voters repeatedly kept her in the show despite her being up for eviction at multiple instances, while she garnered a “cult following” on social media with phrases such as “Oviya Army” regularly trending. Her behavior and positive attitude on the show also attracted other celebrities to tweet in appreciation of her, with the likes of Priya Anand, Nivetha Pethuraj, Sathish and Karunakaran amongst others praising her on social media. The popularity of Oviya reached such a high in late July 2017 that the makers of an unrelated Tamil film, Balloon (2017), included a song titled “Neenga Shut Up Pannunga” and dedicated it to the actress. Likewise, several other songwriters created their own “Oviya Anthems” and released them online.
