Vanitha Vijayakumar is a Kollywood actress who's been involved in many controversies to-date.

Her feud with her dad went public and her parents eventually disowned her in a press conference.

Recently, Vanitha joined the famous reality show 'Bigg Boss S3' and became the talk of the town for all the wrong reasons. She was evicted by public voting at first but re-entered the show as the wildcard entry.

In a recent interview, Vanitha revealed that she's getting lots of opportunities to be on television shows and not movies.

"I don't want to play negative roles at the moment, but would prefer taking more female-empowerment roles," she said.

She added that her dad, veteran actor Vijayakumar took up so many roles, and that's why he managed to survive longer in the industry. And she would look up to him and use all the opportunities that come her way.

"Bigg Boss contestants seldom get good opportunities in movies. After the show, people tend to forget them. But I want to make sure I constantly appear on television," she said.

She further added that the social media posts, shares, likes, and news are pointless in the end, as the contestants need to get proper chances to remain in the industry.
