Television hunk, Vivian DSena has been named the TV Personality 2017, in a poll conducted by Sabras Radio and compiled in conjunction with BizAsiaLive.com .
This is the second consecutive year that Vivian, who plays Harman Singh in Colors’ show ‘Shakti’ has topped the poll. Beside ‘Shakti’, DSena has had a relatively quiet year.
TV Personality 2017 is the biggest Indian television poll ran on UK Asian radio. The annual poll, now in its third year, consists of Top 30 finalists based on votes. It is helmed by Raj Baddhan, who heads the two popular outlets in the UK.

“With popularity of Indian television stars rising each passing year, we’re proud at Sabras Radio and BizAsiaLive.com to run such a huge and comprehensive poll – the biggest on UK Asian radio. Huge congrats to Vivian DSena on topping the poll again for the second year. Well done to the other 29 finalists too that made it inside the Top 30. Thank you to all the fans that voted in their thousands to make this the biggest TV Personality so far.”

Helly Shah was the highest placed female at No.3 for her award-winning performance in ‘Devanshi’. Drashti Dhami came in at No.4 for her memorable role as Naina in ‘Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil’, with best friend, Sanaya Irani rounded off the Top 5 for her participation in this year’s ‘Nach Baliye 8’.
