Vivian Dsena is keen on playing characters that are not unreal
Actor Vivian Dsena (right) shot to fame when he played a vampire in Twilight’s Indian rip-off on TV — Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani and later played a larger than life character of a popular film star in Madhubala – Ek Ishq Ek Junoon. But now, Vivian is no longer keen on portraying such “unreal” characters and would rather play more real characters, so that the audience can easily connect with his role.
“Not just audience, even I would enjoy playing those [real] characters. You don’t see a vampire on your way to work or meet a hero stepping out of his BMW every time you are entering a mall. That’s why after Madhubala, I decided to take a break from TV for two-and-a-half year and not repeat similar characters,” says Vivian.
Currently, the actor is portraying the role of a regular guy in a TV show and he’s pretty content with it. Vivian also says that he doesn’t want to bulk up for his roles, as too much muscle at times look fake. “I do believe in experimenting with my looks but I’ve never gone overboard. I don’t believe in getting six-pack abs to portray a hero,” adds Vivian, who has also been part of reality shows such as Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi. He also wants to explore comedy in the future, if good offers come his way.
