Malayalam actor Oviya, the controversial Bigg Boss Tamil contestant who allegedly attempted suicide in the house, walked out of the show.

Oviya shares the Bigg Boss stage with the show’s host Kamal Haasan.

On Sunday, an Indian Express report said that she quit the show on Saturday’s episode. “I think I love Arav too much… I am not able to control it. That’s why I want to go,” it quoted her as saying while announcing her decision to walk out.

Arav is a TV actor who has worked in the Hindi serial Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon and Mahabharata.

“I got what I came here for – experiences and love. I don’t know if I will beat the show. But I have realised that true love never fails. I am happy,” she added.

Oviya mad her onscreen debut in 2007’s Malayalam film Kangaroo. She gained popularity with Tamil film Kalavani. However, the first season of Tamil Bigg Boss proved to be her true ticket to fame. She is known for her frank and no-nonsense attitude and has been getting a lot of support from fans.

The show is a little over a month old and Oviya has emerged as its most popular contestant. She got attention early in the show’s run, when after an argument, she shut down co-contestant Ganja Karuppu with, ‘Neenga Shutup Pannunga (With due respect, please shut up)’. The response became something of a slogan and is now featured on tees and other merchandise.
