Well, well Bigg Boss is one reality show which has conveyed the love of actress Oviya. Even after the show got over, the actress maintains that she was very much in love with Aarav (a male participant in the Bigg Boss show). But things got complicated when Aarav started to ignore her completely.

Following which she tweeted “Relationship status: single and satisfied”. This obviously was an indication of the end to their complicated relationship. This breakup was cited as the main reason behind the emotional stress which Oviya suffered from during the show which led to her exit.

But after coming out of the Bigg Boss show, Oviya still thought she was in love with Aarav. Said she to her fans in a video message on Twitter “True love never fails.
