Weekend Exclusive | I work hard without expectations: Actor, Vivian Dsena
He is one of the youngest and the most handsome faces on television. One of the top contestants amongst the top 10 in the Gladrags manhunt Contest, Vivian Dsena has worn many hats in his short career – model, actor and voice actor. He is best known for his role as Abhay Raichand in the youth based supernatural show “Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani”. Besides, he has also acted in the daily soap opera Kasamh Se and in Ganga on Colors. Vivian is in the news again as he essays the role of Superstar RK in the magnum opus serial “Madhubala” which recently went on air on Colors.
Says 23 year old Vivian about his role of Superstar RK in the serial Madhubala, “It was a different kind of a role. Maybe I am destined to play a variety of roles at different times. I have never played the role of a Superstar on television before. The role of RK is famous for being famous and he has a certain attitude and he knows what he is. My character has no resemblance to anyone.”
The fact that Madhubala is a women centric subject and traces the journey of a simple girl next door to a superstar does not deter Vivian who opines that TV serials per se are women oriented as they are the largest consumers of soap operas and sagas. He maintains that he would do full justice to his role, come what may.
Vivian does not have any particular preference as far as choosing roles are concerned. He is fine with playing any character and continuously discusses it with his producer, director and all concerned to ensure that the character turns out as visualized. His favourite actor is Salman Khan and Vivian is inspired by him. He adds, “I have always looked up to him, I think he’s the fittest actor in Bollywood. Motivated by his fitness, I recently shed around 11kgs to look fit for the role of RK.” As far as the role of RK is concerned, he adds in one line, ‘you have to watch the show, this guy is a multi-coloured guy with no particular shades to his character – black or white.”
When quizzed about his expectations from the role, he adds, “I do not have any expectations from the serial. I will do my best, work very hard and leave it to the director and the audiences whether I have met their expectations or not”. | By Aditi Popat [aditi(at)adgully.com]
