Mumbai. Actor Vivek Dahiya, by far one of the hottest actors of our industry, turns a year younger today and with it also has a treat for his fans. The actor who is currently on a holiday in Scotland will be seen making his web series debut with Zee5’s ‘Operation Terror: Chabbis Gyarah’. Vivek will be seen playing the role of Captain Rohit Bagga who was away on leave when the terror siege in Mumbai took place and the NSG Commandos were called upon. Setting aside his personal leave and commitments, Captain Bagga had driven four hours to reach the flight in the nick of time for the operation.
Vivek reveals, “Playing an ambitious character is a treat for me as I myself am someone who is driven by my work! And while as actors we are only entertaining, these men are truly saving lives and protecting our country! For me this one is special as I’m truly playing a character of a braveheart and one that has helped me grow as a human being and brought me closer to my own country. Being on a set in an army officer’s uniform is one thing but the show has been made with so much attention to detail that for me my respect has grown towards our army officer and commandos after actually stepping into their shoes. Their selflessness and to put your country above everything, including yourself and your family, and to live and die for your nation needs an unbelievably strong heart. The character of Captain Rohit Bagga has helped me expand my horizons and come closest to what its like to be in a battlefield and do whatever it may take for the love of your country!”
The actor recently set international footsteps as Vivek was seen co-hosting The Cardiff International Film Festival Gala Night with Lucy Owen!
