Struggle days were not easy
Vivek Dahiya told about his struggle in an interview given to Siddharth Kanan, ‘During the days of Struggle, I did not even have the money to pay the rent.’ When I came to Mumbai, I had only 60 thousand rupees in my account. But my father was not very supportive and he gave me only 6 months time. He used to think that thinking of making a career in acting is just a waste of time. Papa didn’t know anyone in this line. He said why are you wasting time, I have seen many children getting misled after going to Mumbai. Take 6 months, if it doesn’t work then you come back. And I also agreed. After going there, slowly my money also started running out, then I thought to borrow some money and at the same time I got my first acting job.

When the tag of TV actor was applied
Recalling the days of struggle, Vivek said, ‘I worked continuously on the small screen for almost three years. After this I also participated in a reality show ‘Nach Baliye’ with my wife Divyanka. We got a lot of popularity from that show, which did not work because after that I did not get any work for a long time. I thought I am all set to enter the big screen now. I can work in films on my own. But I realized that I have been labeled as a ‘TV actor’. Although I did not do so many TV shows that I was labeled as a TV actor. Whenever I used to go for auditions, the producers used to say that you have potential, but you are from TV. I was told to sit at home for three-four years and keep giving auditions.

Let us tell you that these days Vivek is in discussion about his upcoming film ‘Chal Zindagi’. In this film, the actor will be seen opposite Shannon, daughter of famous singer Kumar Sanu. Currently Vivek is away from the world of TV and he wants to try his luck in films only.
