Television heartthrob Vivian Dsena, who won hearts as Rishab Kundra (RK) in superhit show "Madhubala – Ek Ishq Ek Junoon," will soon make a comeback to daily soaps with "Shakti...Astitva Ke Ehsaas Kii." The show will see popular actress Rubina Dilaik opposite Vivian.

Interestingly, Kamya Punjabi has been roped in to play the role of Vivian's mother on the show. The gorgeous actress believes that she and Vivian look more of a couple than a mother and son. However, Kamya, who played mother to Mohit Malik in "Banoo Main Teri Dulhann," is confident that she will carry off the role of a mother to a grown-up through her splendid performance. 

The report also said that Kamya's character will be of a romantic wife and a doting mother. "Vivian and I look like a couple. The channel and the creative team had a difficult time to finalise the look that will make me look like his mother. Since they wanted me on the show, they had to compromise a little. And I intend to make up for it through my performance. It won't be difficult as I have played mother to Mohit Malik in 'Banoo Main Teri Dulhann,'" Kamya told the Times of India.

Not just was Kamya amused when she was roped in as Vivian's mother, even the latter was not convinced of playing Kamya's son. "Vivian and his wife Vahbiz (Dorabjee) are my friends. I have never worked with him before. When I met him on the set, he kept joking that he is still not convinced that I could play his mother. I even slapped him in fun, which amused the director who said that this is what he wants from us in the show. Vivian told Vahbiz about it, who too found it funny." 

A few months ago, the teaser of "Shakti...Astitva Ke Ehsaas Kii" was released, which gave a hint that the show will narrate the tale of two sisters. The family drama is set in Punjab and will see Vivian and Rubina sharing screen space for the first time.
