He then revealed, "So when you enter the glam world, you are given a list of coordinators to meet. Then they call you in person and accordingly projects are pitched based on your personality. One of the coordinators called me to the office and told me that it would be difficult for me to sustain in the industry as I had no godfather and nepotism was at its peak. He told me that it would be difficult to survive. So, he initially suggested I should rather pay money to people to get myself a full-fledged role in a show. I have studied business and I know it works. I did not buy any of his words as I knew had it been true, a lot of people would have paid in lakhs and got themselves a lead role so easily."

Vivek further added, "When I refused to oblige to the monetary way out, he suggested me of the next alternative that was the casting couch where I would have to please people in a certain way. I simply asked him if there were any other better way out rather than these shady things. He told me, "tumhare joote ghiss jayenge lekin tumhe kaam nahi milega. Kuch nahi hoga." On the professional front, Vivek Dahiya is happy with the way his career in television has been shaping up. The actor, who was seen in the show Qayamat Ki Raat, received a warm response for the same.
