Thanks to her continued stay at the Bigg Boss house on the outskirts of Chennai as part of the hugely popular reality television show, actress Oviya Helen is said to have lost out an important offer to star opposite Vijay Sethupathi, the ‘man of the moment’ in Tamil films.
Thanks to her skimpy costumes and catwalks, Oviya has become a huge hit among Tamil youths in particular and audiences in general and has been getting many unexpected votes in the reality television show, on air on Vijay TV for more than a month now. Though she wasn’t favoured initially, it now appears that she is on course to even winning the contest!
However, the actress has lost out on an important film in her career. Balaji Tharaneetharan, who made the 2012 hit film Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom (which paved way for Vijay Sethupathi’s stardom), is joining hands with Vijay Sethupathi again for an upcoming film titled as Seethakathi for which he wanted to cast Oviya as one of the three heroines.
Oviys’a participation in the show has made things tough for Balaji who can’t wait for the show to be over. He has now gone ahead and cast Parvathy Nair in her place in the film which has Remya Nambeesan and Gayathrie as the other two heroines in the film. Wonder how Oviya’s fans would feel now that she is losing professionally because of the reality show!
