Today (April 29) is the birthday of Oviya, who won the hearts of many after she took part in ‘Bigg Boss’ reality television show hosted by Kamal Haasan. As a result, fans even formed ‘Oviya Army’ and supported her.
On her birthday today, members of her ‘army’ have been showering her with wishes. They have been greeting all success to the ‘Kalavani’ and ‘Madha Yaanai Koottam’ actress both on professional and personal fronts.
Oviya began her career as an actress by portraying supporting roles in Malayalam films, notably working in ‘Kangaroo’ (2007) and ‘Puthiya Mukham’ (2009) starring Prithviraj and as one of the lead characters in the college drama ‘Apoorva’ (2008).
Oviya then worked towards completing a BA in Functional English at Vimala College in Thrissur, before director Sargunam approached her for ‘Kalavani’ (2010). Sarkunam cast her in the leading female role after seeing a picture of her online and was convinced that he had found the correct actress to portray the role despite reservations from the producer.
She was featured opposite Vimal, and the film subsequently gained positive reviews and became a sleeper hit at the box office. Critics praised Oviya’s performance of a village-based schoolgirl.
