Vivan Bhathena: Cine Artist

imageBlessed with boyish good looks, this 32-year-old has some movies and TV roles to his credit, but he feels it’s not enough. "The craving for good parts will always be there. Though my career s is moving steadily, I feel that I am not getting what I am looking for," says Vivan.

He entered films as a child actor in 1987, when he worked in Anil Kapoor-starrer "Mr India". Now, after so many years, Vivan has acted in " Chak De India" and " Karthik Calling Karthik".

"I am doing TV work besides anchoring," he said. Talking about Bollywood where live the fast life, Vivan prefers to sit quietly and observe things. "I don’t want to be labeled a money hungry guy. I can wait for opportunities as I am happy with the way things have been going," said the actor.

A proud Parsi, Vivan, got married to a non-Zoroastrian and wants to do something for his community. "Dwindling number of Parsis bothers me and I want to make people aware about it," he said.

    maybe marrying within the community would be “doing something about your community” mr. Vivan (good looks) bhathena but then again.. to each is own.

    I think the Parsis are well aware of their ‘dwindling numbers’. If he was truly so ‘bothered’ perhaps he should have married a Parsi girl and contributed to the increase of Parsi numbers.

    not everybody has to or can meet suitable matches ‘within the community.’ whether in bombay karachi gujerat or overseas. so we might not want to be so narrow minded, and bordering on racism, sexism, and xenophobia.  the god Ahura Mazda nor his prophet, did not intend this faith to be the exclusive domain of ethnically persian origin peoples. absurd notion.  intermarriage is common and here to stay across minority communities. the thing to address is NOT ONLY ACCEPTING, BUT ACTIVELY ENCOURAGING INTERMARRIEDS TO JOIN THE FAITH, TO HAVE THIER CHILDREN STUDIED AND INDUCTED IN THE FAITH.
    case in point muslims and even jews. they are issues of intermarried and invariably tell me: i am jewish because my mother OR father was jewish. 
    the rules were in place as agreed to the ruling authority when we landed in sanjan, no intermarriage, no conversion. they worked well for centuries. i can bet a bottom dollar if insistently adhered to now, they will NOT WORK.

    There are good looking if not beautiful Parsi girls, why didn’t he marry one of them?  Nowadays you cn get every type of girl in the community, from educated to dumb- traditional to party girl. But he chose the other path. Thanks for the great help buddy!
