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.
