Any publicity is good publicity for people in showbiz and as per the current trend, Bigg Boss has given a massive reach and publicity to Oviya.
A hashtag #OviyaArmy is continuously trending on Twitter, which is rare for Tamil actresses because social media has been predominantly ruled by Thala-Thalpathy fans. Although memes on Oviya are flooding Twitter and Facebook, many of them only have nice things to say about the Kalavani actress.
Among the fifteen celebrities, Oviya's infectious raw energy, ability to take harsh criticisms made by fellow contestants lightly, boldness and her straight forward attitude has certainly attracted the general public.
The hashtag #OviyaArmy sees a lot of positive comments on the actress.
Comedy actor Sathish on a lighter note tweeted: “Oviya Nadikkiraanga" - Julie. Idhu eppudi irukku theriyuma Kanja Karuppu Ennai kalaaikkirar nu Kavundamani sonna madhiri irukku. #BigBoss.#BigBoss Art director set a pirichi eduththuttu pora varaikkum #Oviya anga dhan pa iruppaanga. Don't waste ur nominations guys”.
Choreographer Sathish also supported Oviya, “Shakthi cannot nominate anymore n discussing to Ganesh fake hence proved. Raiza says she will go. Once again #OviyaArmy will raise. #oviyaarmy will raise and raiza will quietly nominate someone else again without a reason” posted the Achcham Yenbathu Madamayada choreographer.
Several contestants of Bigg Boss claim Oviya is selfish and does not do chores in the house but the actress is getting phenomenal support from the viewers. The basic idea behind Bigg Boss is to showcase the real nature of celebrities, and Oviya has already become the people's favorite.
Though it's too early to judge Oviya's victory in Bigg Boss, this newly gained popularity is likely to get her more offers in Kollywood.
