Actress Oviya became a household name across Tamil Nadu after her participation in the first season of the smash hit Tamil reality TV show, Bigg Boss, in 2017. Prior to Bigg Boss, Oviya was already a popular among Tamil cinema fans after an impressive debut in the sleeper hit family comedy film, Kalavaani, which subsequently landed her roles in Manmadhan Ambu, Muthukku Muthaaga, Marina, Kalakalappu, Sillunu Oru Sandhippu, Moodar Koodam, Madha Yaanai Koottam, Yaamirukka Bayamey, 144 to name a few. 

Since Bigg Boss Tamil season 1, Oviya has gone on to star in films like Kanchana 3, 90 ML, including last year's Kalavani 2. Among the three films, 90 ML garnered a lot of attention because of its adult content and was incidentally also the actress’ first venture as a solo protagonist. Having said that, a topic that has drawn a lot of attention over the past few days is Oviya not gracing her fellow Bigg Boss contestant Arav Nafeez's wedding. Arav, who was the Bigg Boss Tamil season 1 winner, married actress Raahei on September 6, with the wedding seeing most of the contestants present, with attention soon after shifting to Oviya's absence. 

Oviya and Arav's relationship in Bigg Boss season 1 was a major mainstay of the show, with viewers taking a liking to the romantic angle. Now, for the first time, Oviya has in an exclusive interview with Galatta opened up on her absence at Arav's wedding to Raahei saying, "I was in Kerala when they got married. We are not in touch with each other. That phase is over." She further added, "I'm so happy for him. So, I don't think there's any importance to that question anymore." She also said that whatever was there between her and Arav is now over and requested her fans to not post queries regarding that anymore. 

On the professional front, Oviya will be seen in a cameo role in Arav's upcoming film, Raja Bheema, while she has also been paired opposite Abi Saravanan in a film titled Sambhavam. She is also currently a part of the Malayalam venture, Black Coffee, which has Sunny Wayne in the lead role. Watch Oviya's full interview with Galatta below:
