Oviya was the most favourite contestant at the Bigg Boss Tamil house.

Oviya, the Tamil actor who turned into an overnight sensation after she appeared in Bigg Boss Tamil, made a splash when she was signed to be the face of a famous jewellery store in Chennai, Saravana Stores. She replaced the likes of Hansika Motwane and Tamannaah Bhatia to bag the deal, reports Malayalam Manorama.

Oviya was everyone’s sweetheart while she was in the Bigg Boss Tamil house, thanks to her honesty and no-nonsense attitude. The fact that many of her co-contestants were out to trouble her endeared her further to the audience. Her sudden exit from the show in August this year created a storm of sorts.

However, Oviya’s career has taken a turn for the better, post her exit from the Bigg Boss Tamil house. She has signed a number of good films but it is her ad with Saravana Stores that has become the talking point.

She was reportedly given Rs 1.5 crore for it. In doing so, she is giving Nayanthara serious challenge. Nayanthara, the highest paid actress in Kollywood, was reportedly paid Rs 3 crore for on TV video ad for Tata Sky.

Oviya was present at the inauguration of a store of the chain and during an interaction with media confirmed that she will arrive at the Bigg Boss show once again on its 100th episode.
