The Begusarai actor didn’t take up a fiction show because nothing interesting came up his way. He rues the casting process in the industry and says, “You will see two starkly different actors auditioning for the same role. It doesn’t happen on other mediums, because they work on a bound script. Casting should happen on the basis of the role and talent…
naam kitna bada hai woh mat dekho. Art
mein milaavat nahi honi chahiye, sachhai chahiye. Any art form is a reflection of society.
Humne art ko tamasha bana diya hai.”
Coming back to Bigg Boss, he had told us that he would be okay with his ex-girlfriend, Madhurima Tuli joined the show. However, when she did enter the show and the two would often be seen engaging in ugly fights. What if history repeats itself and she joins KKK as a wild card contestant? “That chapter is closed. So, I don’t want to think about any possibility. I am going on the show because I want to do it and I don’t care who joins it,” he replies.
While he is single at the moment and wants to enjoy his bachelorhood, his family often pressurises him to get married. Vishal says, “I have faced a lot of hardships in life from a young age. I come from a joint family and have faced financial setbacks and seen quarrels and bickerings at home. So, when I came to Mumbai, I slogged and shouldered a lot of responsibilities of my family. Now that I am settled, my parents tell me to get married. However, I have told my father to not pressure me about marriage.
Maine unse apni azaadi chheen lee, ya le lee… aap kuchh bhi bol sakte ho (laughs!). I am ambitious and focused on my work. I am not thinking about marriage at this stage. Let me achieve my dreams which include writing, directing, and producing a film, and then I will think of marriage.”
