Vishal Kotian is a Hindi television host, model, and producer who is currently working as a host for the children’s reality program Chhota Birbal. Currently living in Mumbai, Vishal Kotian firmly believes that he has been blessed. Not just known for his dashing good looks and hard cut and muscled body, Vishal Kotian is also famous for his success in tickling many people’s funny bones, in the show Akbar and Birbal in the year of 2014. Playing the role of witty Birbal, opposite Akbar the King, Vishal Kotian easily succeeds in appealing to everyone and making the show a universally acclaimed TV show for its humor and wit.
Vishal Kotian also played the mythological role of Hanuman in the show Devon Ke Dev Mahadev and the show Mahabharat. A believer of religious method acting, Vishal Kotian, who is normally a non-vegetarian, decided to become a full-time vegetarian while playing the role of Hanuman, to do justice to the role. His body is what got him the role of Hanuman, and is what introduced him to the India’s acting world as well.
At the young age of 18, Vishal Kotian won a prime modeling contest which opened up several doors for him as a model and a future actor. An avid believer of ‘what is seen, sells’ Vishal Kotian works hard to maintain his body and eight-pack abs, and stays away from all vices possible – cigarettes and alcohol alike – and treats his body ‘like a temple.' When the acting offers started coming in, Vishal Kotian played his cards right, which is why he is now a famous host who plays with comedy in the hit Indian TV series ‘Chhota Birbal’ which is specifically aimed towards the younger audiences to teach them the various tales of Birbal’s wit and wisdom.
Vishal has also tried his luck in production; his production venture is named Drama Queen Company.
