One of the most popular faces on Indian television screen, Vivian Dsena will turn a year older on the 28th of June. The actor, who is garnering rave reviews for his sterling performance in Rashmi Sharma’s Shakti – Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki, plans to spend the day with his mother. The actor says that his mother has already made some plans to celebrate the special day and he will be with her. “I will be spending time with my mother and taking her out. She is planning to visit some temples, so I will be with her visiting a few temples,” he says, adding, “In fact, she has already gifted me a camera.”

The actor says while all his birthdays have been special, his seventh birthday was unforgettable. “My seventh birthday was amazing when my father gifted me a dog. His name was Jimmy and that was the best birthday gift I had ever got. I was a single child and I wanted company so my father gifted me the dog,” he says.

Ask him if he has any birthday wishes, and he says, “I want to a better actor and I hope that people continue to like my work. I am trying to improve every day. I am focusing on my fitness too. I have a lot of setbacks due to injuries but now I am getting back to shape. I hope I succeed in that.”

And when asked about what he wants to gift himself on his birthday, he says, “I haven’t really thought of that as yet. I keep buying gadgets, I am fond of perfumes too. I usually spend money on football shoes. I have a collection of about 50 football shoes already,” he says.
