Recently, popular TV actor Vivian Dsena’s sudden exit from his successful show, Madhubala, left many in the TV industry as well as his fans shocked.
And although there have been several rumours about the reasons behind his departure, his co-star Drasti Dhami has kept mum throughout.
She breaks her silence with this interview and talks about Vivian’s unexpected exit.
Were you surprised to hear about Vivian’s exit?
I was shocked to hear about Vivian. I have been working with him for the past one-and-a-half years, so I was surprised to know that he won’t be part of the show post the leap. It is the producer’s call. I felt sad about his exit.
After the leap, the show will focus on you. Will that increase the pressure on you?
Yes, of course. There will be pressure on everyone, not just me. The DOP, producer, creative and other actors — we will all be working together. Somewhere down the line, it might be a bit more for me as I play the lead.
You will be playing your own daughter on the show.
Yes, I guess. I am not aware of the storyline ahead, so I am clueless. In a few days, I will have a clearer picture.
There were reports about Vivian and you not getting along. Are they true?
That’s bulls**t. We are not the best of friends, but we don’t have any kind of sourness between us. We are friendly enough.
Buzz is that Gurmeet Choudhary will play the lead now.
I don’t know. It’s the producer’s call.
But you get along better with Gurmeet than Vivian, right?
No, both have been equally friendly towards me and vice versa.
