Popular actor Simbu often tweets about his favourite moments and contestants from Bigg Boss Tamil.

Everybody who has watched Bigg Boss Tamil loves Oviya. Her supporters’ list includes not just commoners but many celebrities as well. The latest celeb to join the Oviya fan club is popular actor Simbu (Silambarasan). But it looks like he also likes playing the peacemaker.

On Wednesday, Silambarasan got into a debate with choreographer Sathish over the show.

It is well known that Sathish is a big fan of Oviya and never minces any words to attack those contestants who make life miserable for her. In one such a rant on Twitter over the happenings on Tuesday’s episode, he accused Gayathri (another contestant) for ganging up against Oviya.

He wrote: “Gay3 have not taken Oviya as friend instead of telling everything to Shakthi u could have spoke to Oviya . So u r showing some stunts.”

To which, Simbu replied: “Why judge? Let’s just accept the way they are. Gayathri is not a bad person or others as well, situation and circumstances make one G or B.”

When Sathish insisted on the “damages” Gayathri was causing, Simbu replied, “True lets just forgive , once she comes out she will obviously understand her mistakes . And everyone else for that matter . hope for unity. its better to make them understand than to abuse them. just because we like Oviya for what she is why hurt others ? spread love.”

But Sathish would not stop and agonised over the way some of the contestants were behaving during the show. Playing the perfect peacemaker, Simbu said, “All I’m saying is lets not abuse them and just show our support to whom we love . obviously everyone will understand . simple as that.”

Simbu, of course, went to say that like so many others, he too is a ‘fan’ of Oviya.

Bigg Boss in Tamil took off on June 25 and over the month that it has been running, it has emerged as a very popular TV programme. Veteran Kamal Haasan has stepped into Salman Khan’s shoes in the Tamil version.

The 15 participants taking part in the show include actors Sri, Anuya, Vyapuri, Gayatri Raghuram, Bharani, Raiza Wilson, Snehan, Oviya, Harathi, Aarav, Ganja Karupu, Ganesh Venkatraman, Shakti Vasu and Namitha. Julie, a girl who rose to fame during the Jallikattu row, is the only non-actor in the group of participants who will stay locked inside a house for 100 days, absolutely cut out from the outside world. Kamal visits the house once every week to eliminate a participant.
