Vivian Dsena who was recently seen in Colors TV show Shakti- Astitva Ke Ehsaas ki has enthralled the audience over the years with his phenomenal acting. The Actor received immense popularity for the show Pyaar kii ye ek Kahaani. In a recent conversation, Vivian opens up on his career, changes in the industry and his love for his fans. Have a look:
When asked about his views on people saying 'Actors can't be friends', he said, "Firstly, what I have heard from people is that my contemporaries consider me to be out of the industry, like an outsider who has come to this industry. Like somebody who has come from a different town and works in their town. So, this concludes that I may not have a lot of friends in the industry. I am a simple person and I cannot have faith in everyone I meet. I don't bother about what is happening in the industry as long as it's not affecting me. If it really bothers me then I will make sure that I get rid of it."
Vivian also doesn't think that having a social circle is necessary. He says, "Does social circle contribute to a person's success, his monthly expenses? No right? So, it’s not necessary. Everyone has his perceptions. I was not so social in the past too."
Talking about Friendships, Vivian said, "True friendship means faith. I have friends but I don't talk to them for 3-4 months. They are my 4 am friends. I have their numbers on my speed dial and I can call them at 4 am if needed."
Vivian has a huge fan following, not only in India but also abroad. Talking about it, he said, "It’s a blessing. There are instances when I have seen myself in the mirror and I have said that, ‘Am I the same Vivian Dsena?’ I don’t want to sound pompous but it’s true. What the audience have made me is something that I had never thought of becoming. I came here for modelling and I have never thought of acting as a career but it was in my destiny."
He also shared his love for food and said, "There are some people who eat to live but I am somebody who lives to eat. I am a big foodie but I love to eat at home mostly. I am somebody who lives life like every normal human being. It's not that I don't eat outside food. I stop at highways to drink and eat, I eat street food too. But due to star quotient sometimes we have to rush away from public places." Vivian added, "I do cook. I always try to cook a meal once a week for my mother and my masi. I try to cook a lot of varieties of Khichidi as its light for the stomach and great for the summers. I cook paneer khichdi, spinach khichdi, our traditional khichdi."
Talking about Bollywood and Television, Vivian said, "I love watching films. As far as acting goes, if you give me a Bollywood film and say that it will make my career and if you give me a TV soap which I like then I will choose the TV soap as I love it and I am attached to it. I believe there is no difference between TV and Bollywood today. I believe the only source of entertainment is Netflix."
He also added that for him creativity means satisfaction. "I act as I love to be creative, to emote on camera. I live and thrive on my creativity." he says. Talking about his me time, Vivian mentioned that he loves painting and spending time with himself.
