Out of the blue, actor Vimal has announced that he won’t be pairing up opposite actress Oviya in any film(s) in future. The actor made this unexpected announcement at the one-track release of his upcoming film titled Sillunu Oru Sandhippu (SOS) which was held recently in the city. Of late, releasing just a single track in the film’s audio album has been becoming a trend.
SOS is produced by Nandagopal and has a couple of heroines in Oviya and Deepa Shaw opposite Vimal. Some time back, it was rumoured that Oviya and Deepa clashed right in the sets during the filming of a particular sequence. However, at the event, both of them appeared to be at ease in the company of each other. At least, they didn’t show their hatred in public.
Ravi Lallin is the director of the film. One of the scribes assembled at the event asked Vimal as to why he had been starring opposite Oviya in one film after the other. The moment this question was asked, Vimal got up as if he was expecting this and said, “In order to put a full stop to rumours linking us, I’ve decided not to star opposite Oviya in any film(s) in future. I’m sure she must also have taken a similar decision!”
Oviya, who was shocked at Vimal’s outburst, didn’t react to that and told newsmen that “SOS is my third film with Vimal wherein I play a student. My next film shall be Moodar Koodam; I shall continue to act in Tamil films as the audiences here show lots of love and affection to the stars. As far as appearing glamourously in films, I did a glamour-filled song in Kalakalappu as it was required in the script and it was loved by the audiences too.
“I had a good time with Anjali when we starred together in Kalakalappu. Everyone has his or her zone in Kollywood and I feel I’m not competing with any actresses except myself,” concluded Oviya, neither denying nor agreeing to Vimal’s statement made earlier that they both won’tbe starring together anymore in films!
