Television actor Vivian Dsena and his wife-actor Vahbiz Dorabjee’s separation a few weeks ago left many in the television industry shocked. The couple met on the sets of Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani (PKYEK), and got married in 2013. Apparently, they separated due to incompatibility issues, with Vahbiz being an extrovert, who loves to socialise, and Vivian being an introvert. Vivian moved out of the couple’s house over two weeks ago. The two even attended TV actor Sargun Mehta’s birthday party separately last week. Sources claim the chances of them reconciling are slim.
Vivian says, “It’s personal, and I would like to keep it personal. We are adults, who are mature and [were] married for more than three years. We are the two best people who can decide what is happening [between us]. The media will speculate and publish reports. But it is we who will decide what is the best [for us].”
Vivian, who is finding solace in his work, says that even if one’s personal life is in the news, it shouldn’t affect one’s professional life. “I believe in keeping my personal and professional lives separate. I leave my personal issues at home. I don’t take my work home either. But, at the end of the day, we are all human beings, and it is tough to keep these lives separate all the time. It (personal turmoil) remains with you subconsciously. But that doesn’t mean you let your work get affected,” he says.
Vivian, who has had a successful career with hit shows like PKYEK and Madhubala, is enjoying the success of his on-going series Shakti. Vivian claims that despite his earlier successes, he had butterflies in his stomach before starting the project. “I don’t take myself for granted even today. After this show, I won’t think that just because I have given three back-to-back hit shows, my next series will be also be a hit. It is hard-work and passion that makes you deliver. There is no reward that is better than people loving your work,” he says.
The actor feels his “never-done-before” TV show Shakti, which is about a eunuch, appealed to audiences. The 28-year-old says, “We took the risk of executing such a subject, and it paid off. We have seasoned actors on the show, which also makes the job of the director easier. You can deliver better performances if your co-stars deliver theirs well too.”
