It is reported from Kollywood circles that ‘Bigg Boss’ fame actress Oviya Helen a.k.a. Oviya is all set to pair up opposite another ‘Bigg Boss’ contestant and popular lyricist Snehan in a new film in which he plays the lead role.
Titled as Panankaattu Nari, the film brings together Oviya and Snehan, who were very close to each other during their 2-month stay (Snehan later went on to stay the full duration and ended up as the runner-up) at last year’s popular reality television show ‘Bigg Boss’ aired on Vijay TV. The film’s first-look posters were released recently by Oviya herself.
Oviya, who debuted as heroine with national award-winning film-maker A. Sarkunam’s debut directorial venture Kalavaani, was a neither-here-nor-there kind of actress who hit big time with ‘Bigg Boss’ as her popularity soared after she became one of the most favourite contestants/in-mates of the reality show which was modelled on a similar show on Hindi channel (based on a U.S. TV show).
Ganesh Babu (of Yamuna fame) directs Panankaattu Nari, which is produced by Sri Vishnu Creations. The shoot of the film commenced in the first week of February in Malaysia. Oviya, who has reportedly said ‘yes’ to the proposal of starring opposite Snehan, might start her portion of shoot from next month onwards.
