Actor Vivian Dsena, who rose to fame with the supernatural television show Pyaar Kii Yeh Ekk Kahani, is not perturbed by the sudden wave of OTT taking over. He believes that the two mediums are different and cannot be compared.
"Everybody is not an OTT fan, and everybody is not an Indian television fan. The audience is very neatly separated or rather bifurcated", Vivian tells IANS.
The actor who is known for his performances as Abhay in Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahani, R.K. in Madhubala – Ek Ishq Ek Junoon, has reasons to believe that the digital world should not be confused with what television has to offer.
"The digitalization is in the direction of a digital world so if you compare it with television it would be very different because both the mediums are different. I don't think OTT should be in competition with Indian television because the basics never change, so television has always been the base of the mass audience platform, and digitalization is a completely different world", he says.
Speaking about his popularity, Vivian says he never imagined he could deliver a hit following the super success of 'Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani' show in which he played a vampire.
"I never thought all three shows of mine would do so good. After 'Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani', I never thought that 'Madhubala: Ek Ishq Ek Junoon' would become such a big show, and after 'Madhubala...', my next release 'Shakti: Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki' would also become such a big show. I just went with the flow", Vivian told IANS.
