Tejasswi Prakash aka Basanti and Vishal Kotian aka Veeru from Bigg Boss 15, recently reunited for the first time after the show ended. The duo became good friends during their stay in the Bigg Boss 15 house, but couldn’t meet after the show got over. However, they caught up with each other at Tejasswi Prakash’s home for Ganesh Chaturthi. That’s not all, Karan Kundrra, Simba Nagpal and Vishal Kotian’s girlfriend Payal Shetty were also part of the reunion. Vishal exclusively spoke to ETimes TV about the meeting with his BB 15 gang, Tejasswi, Karan Kundrra and Simba Nagpal.
“In life there are friends, best friends, good friends and then there are friends forever. Tejasswi for me is a friend forever. She was, id and will always be my friend. Who says that you can’t make friends in the Bigg Boss house, I’ve managed to do it and it is with Tejasswi. Though we couldn’t meet after Bigg Boss ended, we tried a couple of times but she was busy with Naagin, I was completely tied up with my Marathi film for which I travelled to interior parts of Maharashtra. We couldn’t meet but we were always in touch over the phone whenever she had time as she was doing a daily soap. But it finally happened and what better occasion than Ganesh Chaturthi. We both are from Mumbai’s typical middle-class families with humble backgrounds. It is a pleasure to not only meet Tejasswi but her parents as well,” he said.
Vishal was all praise for Karan Kundrra and Simba Nagpal as well and stated that Karan reminds him of his late mother, who was a Punjabi, “To meet Tejasswi was like a breath of fresh air. Meeting her after such a long time, but it doesn’t seem that we met after such a long period. We spoke, hugged and talked about how we have come this far in life. Then we called Simba Nagpal who came over. It was really sweet of him to come over. I had not met him after Bigg Boss. Then Karan Kundrra also joined in and I love Karan. He is a huge hearted person, how Punjabis are bade dilwala. My other half is Punjabi. My mom was a Punjabi so whenever I meet Karan, he reminds me of my mother and Tejasswi reminds me of Mumbai’s middle-class girl who has made it very big in life.”
The Akbar Ka Birbal actor stated that he wishes best for everyone and hopes that they continue the tradition of meeting each other more frequently, “It was a nice meeting and I wish the best for Tejasswi and I wish for all of us that we grow in life. Everybody from our season grows in life. I am proud of each one of them. It was nice to meet my friends and Tejasswi. This was one reunion which everyone kept asking about and waited for. I am glad it happened and Ganpati Bappa made it happen. We met in his presence and took blessings of Bappa. I took blessings from Tejasswi’s parents and I hugged Karan and Simba, it was like meeting my family. It was a fun family reunion and I wish we keep doing this more often. I finally met my bhidu Tejasswi and it was a nostalgic and emotional meeting,” he concluded
