Actress Oviya made her debut in Kalavani. After this she continued to act in numerous films including Agarathi, Kalakalappu and Moodar Koodam. In spite of this, she did not get solo heroine roles. The directors are selecting her for the second heroine roles only.
Frustrated by this, she started concentrating on other language films. Now she is donning female lead roles in a Kannada and Telugu film. The Kannada film has been titled Mr. Mommaga. This is the remake of Tamil film Manja Pai. Oviya is donning the role which Lakshmi Menon did in Manja Pai.
Raghavan who directed Manja Pai is directing the Kannada remake version. Actresses like Anjali, Amy Jackson and Tapsee have switched over to Telugu and Hindi films because they do not get proper opportunity in Tamil. Oviya is also groping because she is also not getting proper opportunity in Tamil film industry.
