Vishal Kotian continued, “But after going inside the BB 15 house and staying there I realised that I need to get back to life and understand people. When you are inside the house you start valuing your loved ones even more and start realising how special they are. She managed a lot of things in my absence, when I was away in Bigg Boss 15. From taking care of my house, my father to everything. I realised her importance in life and we are together now.”

She wants to enjoy the phase and do a couple of more films.” He continued, “She doesn’t want to be known as Vishal Kotian’s wife or as my partner. She wants me to be known as her partner and I have no qualms about it. If I am known as her husband or partner I’ll be more than happy. I feel man and woman are equal and even if the woman is superior in a relationship in terms of her career or my life I’ve no issues. I am ok being a man in the woman’s world. It is her decision, so let her grow and work more. Personally, she feels when she is at a little equal position career-wise we should get married then.”
In the same conversation, he also added that Payal is currently part of a big film that has received nominations at a few awards shows.
