Telly actor Vivian Dsena says his recently announced exit from hit TV show, Madhubala — Ek Ishq Ek Junoon, came after a mutual decision was taken by him, show’s producers and Colors television channel. Vivian wasn’t convinced about playing a grown-up girl’s father, following a time leap.

“It is the decision of the makers of the show. I think whatever they are doing is best for the show,” says Vivian, adding: “Moreover, wherever I am today is just because of them only. Obviously I’m feeling bad that my fans won’t be able to see me in Madhubala, but I think it is good for the life of the show.” Madhubala, which went on air in 2012, features Drashti Dhami in the titular role. Produced by Abhinav Shukla and Saurabh Tiwari, the show is reportedly set to take a leap forward, and post that, Drashti will return as the daughter of Madhubala and Rishabh Kundra, essayed by Vivian.

Vivian has said that he would not have been convincing enough in the role of a father and thus, he decided to leave the show. “It is also true that my fans would not expect me to play a father to a 25-year-old on the show as I’m 25 myself in real life,” says Vivian.

“I wouldn’t look convincing enough to play a dad, which is why the mutual decision was taken between me, the producers and the channel,” he adds. Vivian, who became popular with the TV show, Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani, feels his character on Madhubala has got into his “blood”. “It is very difficult to take the role out of my body,” he says.
