Vivian Dsena: You break the monotony of a daily soap by playing different characters, changing the level of execution, and experimenting with new things. This time I have chosen intensity over intimacy.
Be it Abhay in Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani, Rishabh in Madhubala – Ek Ishq Ek Junoon or Harman in Shakti — Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki, and now Ranveer in Sirf Tum, Vivian Dsena has always kept his audience mesmerized with his performances. The actor is also known for the choices he makes when it comes to stories and characters, for he believes in doing something new every time to drive away monotony, especially when one is a part of a daily soap.
“You break the monotony by playing different characters, otherwise even after ten years, you will feel like you’ve done the same thing over and over again. You cannot change human situations because emotions are basic, but how they are executed and the fact that everyone’s perspective and imagination are completely different makes them unique. So for breaking monotony one should try and not play the same characters that they have played before, keep approaching their characters differently, and also keep changing the level of execution and performance In Sirf Tum I have chosen intensity over intimacy. Intimacy on Indian television has become a taboo n I chose to go against the wave, where I feel intimacy is so common while clean love is missing while everything has become only about having physical contact between the lead pairs,” he explains.
Feedback from his audience matters much to Vivian. He learns from all the substantial comments that come his way.
“If the feedback is positive then I’m great and that means I’m doing a good job but if there’s something negative then that means I have something left to learn. After learning is a never-ending process,” he says.
