Popular Indian Television actor Vivian Dnsena, who has been away from his acting stints for while, confirmed converting to Islam. The actor who has been a part of popular shows such as Madhubala and Shakti: Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki, and Sirf Tum, revealed that he converted to Islam during Ramadan in 2019.
He confirmed the news in one of his recent interviews with the Bombay Times. “Nothing much has changed in my life. I was born Christian, and I follow Islam now. I started following Islam during the holy month of Ramadan in 2019. I find a lot of peace and space in praying five times a day. So, here I put all the unsought speculations to rest.”
The actor also put up a post on social media wishing his fans on the occasion of Ramadan. “Almighty/ On this blessed first Friday in #Ramadan makes us among those who fast sincerely for your sake. May you accept our fasts and nights in prayer which we do in full submission. Keep us away from heedlessness and forgive all our sins. Amen.” wrote Dsena in his post.
In the interview, Dsena also opened up about becoming a father. “Yes, I am married and have a four-month-old-daughter. What’s the big deal about it, and how is this anyone’s concern? We would have announced the news of my marriage and the arrival of my daughter, but when I thought the time was right, I tied the knot with Noran in an intimate ceremony in Egypt around a year ago.”
