Vivian Dsena, who boasts of several successful shows on his resume, is perhaps one of the shyest actors working in Indian television space. Despite being in showbiz for more than a decade now, the popular actor does not believe in partying and networking. He is certainly not the kind of actor who would attend parties and socialise with people in hope of getting more work.

Talking to an online publication, Dsena says that nobody has become successful by partying or socialising. “Nobody has become successful by partying or socialising. And if that is the case, I know a lot of people who are extremely social and party animals, but they have neither got any work nor are successful. The only place they are visible are at the events, in photographs that come the next day in the newspaper. Success has no connection with socialising,” explains the actor.

The actor goes on to add that he is not going to change himself to fit into any box and that he loves being the way he is. “There was a time when I was requested to be social but it didn’t suit me and I was losing myself in the bargain. I cannot lose myself for people or for social norms. Everybody has a nature and I am not changing mine for anybody anymore,” he adds.

Vivian Dsena, who is known for such shows as Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani, Madhubala – Ek Ishq Ek Junoon, and more, was last seen in Rashmi Sharma Telefilms’ Shakti: Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki on Colors. The actor quit the show as he was not comfortable playing a father to an actor almost his age.

It has been almost a year since he has not been seen on television. Talking about the long break, Dsena says, “I have always been like this and I like to be in my own space. I have always taken a decent long enough break between projects because it takes a lot of unlearning after you are done playing a character for a long time,” he signs off.
