The first season of Bigg Boss Tamil, a television reality show, started airing on June 24 on Vijay TV. Hosted by the legendary Kamal Hassan, the show is based on Bigg Boss that airs on Colors TV and has been in news ever since it went on air.
A lawyer named SS Balaji has lodged a police complaint against Hassan and the producers of the show for allegedly pushing Oviya, one of the contestants, to attempt suicide. Balaji has sought an investigation from police against the producers of the show and Kamal Hassan for causing mental distress to Oviya to boost the TRPs, viewership and profit from the show.
After staying in the house of Bigg Boss Tamil for 41 days, Oviya jumped into the pool to demand her exit from the show. The contestant also held that she wasn’t fit to continue in the show as she was under some mental agony. She also asserted that she needed professional help to cope with her current state.
In his complaint, the lawyer has held that the rules of the show and tasks that Oviya was subjected to during her stay in the house drove her towards depression. The lawyer also shared the copy of complaint on his Twitter account.
Oviya is a model and Tamil actress who rose to fame mainly after her comedy film ‘Kalavani’ that released in 2010. In the Bigg Boss Tamil house, Oviya has been one of the most favorite contestants of the audience. It was her honesty and boldness that helped her win a lot of fan following which eventually became a source of trouble for her in the house. Her admiration from the audience perhaps led her to become the target of other members in the Bigg Boss house.
