On Christmas, fans were confused by a video of Vishal that made its way online. In the video, he and a mystery woman can be seen checking out Christmas lights on the streets of New York. But when the person recording the video calls him out, he hides his face with a hoodie and runs away with the woman. While some wondered if Vishal was dating someone, others were certain the video was part of promotions for his upcoming film. Turns out it was neither.

Well well well, it’s half true in terms of location, yes I am in New York which is my regular retreat place with my cousins, which is a ritual of destressing myself every year after a super chaotic rest of the year.”
He stated that the video was a “prank” his cousins decided to play on Christmas. He wrote, “The other half of it actually is a prank which all of our cousins decided to play on Christmas Day, directed, enacted and executed by my cousins,” adding, “Always brings the kid in me which is a good feeling n decided to do it and putting an end to all u #detectives speculations. Well of course some were bang on target. But no hard feelings. Love ya all.”
