I come from a place which is for goons, bhais. I was born and brought up in Mumbai’s famous area called Dagdi Chawl, kala chowki and Lalbaug. I was born in a very poor family. I still remember we lived in a very small house and my mother used to cook rice and as it was not enough, she would just have the rice water. She would give the rice to me and my father. I have dropped newspaper’s, milk bottles in people’s houses to earn my livelihood. I have done all kinds of jobs”, Vishal Kotian told the portal.
“I am very grateful to my parents as they put me in a very good school because they knew that if I have to reach somewhere in life, I need to have a good education. They put me in Don Bosco High School, I studied and worked hard and here I am. I am an MBA in finance from one of the best universities of India. This is the real me and I am proud of myself so why not show it to the world”, he further said.
