Chennai: The Nazarathpet Police in Chennai summoned actress and Tamil Bigg Boss contestant Oviya alias Helen as she allegedly attempted suicide on the show. She recently quit the show as she couldn't handle her feelings for a fellow contestant, Aarav, whom she said she was in love with. The channel had telecasted visuals of Oviya immersing herself into a pool on August 4. This comes after the sudden exit of Oviya and eviction of Juliana from the show.
The complainant has asked the police to launch an inquiry into her alleged suicide attempt.
The complainant further said that Oviya's suicide bid was brought on by depression as a result of activities forced on her by the show's host Kamal Haasan, the producers and Vijay TV.
Meanwhile, police told a daily that Oviya's personal secretary has denied about the suicide attempt. She left the Big Boss house last weekend due to mental health issues.
Nonetheless, people are now eagerly looking forward to seeing who will be out of Bigg Boss Tamil this week. The show has been served several legal notices for the behaviour of its contestants. The Tamil and Telugu shows hosted by Kamala Hassan and Jr NTR respectively have been well received and have garnered a lot of viewer appreciation. However, she got eliminated a couple of weeks back. The group had claimed that actor Shakti handled the Nadasvaram without respect on the show.
