Vishal Kotian has been in the industry for nearly twenty years and recently sat down for a conversation with Bollywoodmdb. From “ageing like fine wine” to boycotts and trolling. The energetic actor spoke about his bond with superstar Salman Khan.
Vishal was a beloved contestant in the hit reality television show ‘Bigg Boss’. He shared how appreciated he felt by the host and superstar Salman Khan. In the show, several contestants compete in tasks and challenges and the winner is decided through weekly eliminations. Though Vishal did not win the season he took to his social media to share that his bond with Salman is his real trophy. In the conversation, he shared how when he told Salman that in school he black-ticketed his two films to pay for his school feels the superstar was touched. Following this, he shared how meaningful his first car is to him. He shared that his father who used to work in a garage made him his first car. The actor revealed that it was a great feeling for him and that after his success he brought a car for his father.
Speaking about takeaways from the reality show, Vishal shared how he never hugged his father. How a warm embrace was not common between him and his father. Although they loved each other a physical hug was rare. After the show, he made it a point to give his dad a warm hug and shared how special that felt and brought them even closer.
Lastly, he shared his thought on social media. Vishal was clear about informing the youth that social media is not real. The real work is outside. Trolling and boycotts of films are not important. The audience has the right to share their opinion when they see a film as they have paid money to view it but before a release, a boycott or trolling is an insult to filmmakers and artists who work really hard.
