Her father married her mother after the death of first wife, to fulfill the desires of her parents, her mother got married to him. She further added that the age difference between her mother and father was so huge that the age of her father and maternal grandfather was almost the same. Her step-brothers and sisters were even older than her mother.

She also told that, from the days of being in her mother’s womb, she was treated as an unwanted child. Finally, she broke down and said about how her father never touched her or showed any fatherly love towards her.
Later, Suruthi also revealed that, her father used to lock her mother and herself while going on a trip. She opened up about how her father was insecure about his young wife. They were not even given proper food at times. She spoke further about how she was revealed after the demise of her father and revealed how one of her step-brother used to help Suruthi and her mother for their livelihood.
During the weekend episode, on Saturday, 9th October 2021, the host of the show Kamal Haasan also highlighted the issues faced by Suruthi and her mother, due to the early marriage of her mother (age 18) with her father (age 50).
However, Suruthi along with all the housemates were nominated for the 1st week elimination. But the good thing was that there was no eviction process for the first week. But for the second week elimination process, Suruthi was nominated along with the other housemates.
Suruthi was nominated for the second week elimination along with the other housemates. However, Suruthi was safe from the second week eviction process revealed on Sunday, 17th October 2021, by the host Kamal Haasan.
Suruthi has successfully entered in the 3rd week and even was safe from this week’s elimination process.
In the 3rd week, there was a ‘Pancha Thanthiram’ task, in which Bigg Boss house was transformed into a museum. There were five powerful coins hidden in the Bigg Boss house at five different locations. If one of the housemates found one of the coins secretly and showed it to the camera, then he/she owned it. If one of the nominated contestants found the coin then he/she was able to earn immunity, or use it to save others as well. While picking the coins, if other contestants noticed it, then the contestant who picked the coin had to go to the jail and will be released only after Bigg Boss further instructions and the coin had to be kept at the same place where it was originally found.
Suruthi was seen complaining on camera about few housemates, indulging in influencing, manipulating and message passing acts. She questioned Bigg Boss that whether they are taking note of such acts and whether these things are allowed in the Bigg Boss house.
During the task, Suruthi was also caught taking the coin and hence, she had to go to the jail, while Priyanka and Niroop were already present in the jail before her. Later, Niroop, followed by Priyanka and Suruthi were released from the jail as per the Bigg Boss instructions.
Suruthi became safe from the third week eviction.
