For Vivian Dsena, acting means stepping out of one’s comfort zone, and getting into the skin of the character so well that the audience is convinced, and able to identify with the onscreen persona. If that happens then the journey of an artist is fruitful.
“I would not have wanted or done anything differently in this journey,” the actor sounds satisfied, “I am content and happy with where I am now (smiles). I believe that everything is written and destined for you before you are even born. And, no matter how hard you try you will eventually reach where the Almighty wants you to. So I don’t bother myself with what ifs.”
The actor, who is currently seen in Udaariyaan, prefers keeping his personal life private and is also quite grounded. On how he says so, he adds,
“By simply remembering my struggling days and believing in the fact that where I am and everything I have today is given to me by the Almighty and I have no hands in this.”
Recently, his fans were elated when they got to know about his marriage and daughter. We know how such things in life bring about a change, especially becoming a parent.
“My wife has been standing behind me as a solid pillar. She brought a lot of calmness to my life. I believe being a father has given me a lot of sanity and stability also. I feel truly blessed. God has been very kind to me. Waking up to little hands holding my hands and smiling face, who knows nothing but pure love for you, makes me feel over the moon. Holding my baby in my hands is also an overwhelming feeling which I can’t explain in words,” says the actor, known for TV shows such as Kasamh Se, Agnipareeksha Jeevan Ki – Gangaa, Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani, Madhubala Ek Ishq Ek Junoon, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8, Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 7, Shakti – Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki, Sirf Tum.
While he enjoys romancing the camera, he also has ambitions away from acting.
“Of course I do, and I have mentioned it many times. I have been learning and experimenting with organic farming and I read a lot about agriculture. I enjoy it a lot as well. In fact I would like to be the master of organic farming simply because this is the future,” he adds.
What advice would you give your younger self?
“Don’t take people by the face value,” he is quick to answer.
And, his message for his dearest fans would be,
“I owe it all to each one of you. You all have been doing a marvellous job, be it the trends, the edits and more. I can’t thank you all enough for all the unconditional love and support you have been showering me with and I hope to always live up to their expectations. I love you guys. God bless.”
