Known for her uniqueness, Oviyaa initially rose to fame through the film Kalavani in which she paired opposite to Vimal as school student. She grabbed the attention of Tamil cinema audience through her innocent looks and cute expressions. But she became the household of Tamil TV audience through her stint in the first season of Tamil Bigg Boss show.
In the show, the actress attracted the audience through her bold statements and gutsy decisions inside the house. The actress confronted with almost all of her housemates inside the Bigg Boss house, including experienced dance choreographer Gayathri Raghuram and senior comedian Ganja Karuppu. However the actress couldn’t make use of the fame she gained through Bigg Boss show as her movies after that show didn’t go well. But the fan base of the actress stayed the same and she continued to speak her heart out in public, especially in social media platforms.
