I’m Attracted to the Visual Side of Life

Television actor Vivan Bhathena cracks up each time he sees the evergreen sitcom Friends; but when it comes to heavy-duty action, the American espionage show 24 gets his adrenalin rushing.

Joey Tribbiani is his favourite character who makes a complete ass of himself but is nevertheless endearing. “I know every dialogue from all the 10 seasons of Friends!” he says with a chuckle, making him eligible for an outstanding award in ‘Friends-nomics’!
“I appreciate an actor who improvises and adopts bits of his own personality into the character that he is playing,” adds Vivan.

It’s also interesting to note that the guy has a collection of around 3,000 DVDs and his folks have banned him from buying any more for want of space! “I’ve always been attracted to the visual side of life and movies are my passion.”

Among books, he picks Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the Cars, the Races by Brock Yates as an inspiring read. Could that be because he himself is a self-confessed lover of cars? The book recounts the hardships that Ferrari had to go through to make his cars into a brand that has become iconic today.

It’s not only cerebral stuff that he likes reading but also fantasy novels such as The Lord of the Rings “because I am fascinated with that age and time”.

Catch Vivan Bhathena back with his favourite production house, Balaji Telefilms, after almost five years. He plays the lead in the serial Pyaar ka Bandhan currently showing on Sony at 10.30pm.
