TV actor Indresh Malik says his former "Madhubala - Ek Ishq Ek Junoon" co-star Vivian Dsena is like a family member.
"Vivian is family to me. We often catch up on each other's lives and the last time we spoke he was all praise for my characterisation of Mr. Sahani. In fact, he has even started calling me 'Sattoo' which is my screen nickname in the show "...Badtameez Dil.
"He is really dear to me and such lovely praise of your work from loved ones really motivates you to work harder and better," Indresh, who plays the role of Satish Sahani in "Phir Bhi Na Maane..Badtameez Dil", said in a statement.
Vivian was initially offered the role of the protagonist Abeer in "Phir Bhi Na Maane..Badtameez Dil" but the deal never materialised and Pearl V Puri got the role.
"Phir Bhi Na Maane..Badtameez Dil" is a musical story, set against a music channel as its backdrop.
