‘Flying is my absolute passion’
TV host and actor Vishal Malhotra has a hidden secret. “Flying has been my absolute passion,” reveals Vishal, who is acting in Sony’s Kuch Toh Log Kahenge. “Since the age of three, I’ve been fascinated by aircraft. I followed my passion and took lessons at a flying club in Toronto, Canada.” To get
the private pilot’s license, Vishal had to fly a minimum of 250 hours. “With my acting assignments on TV and business ventures, I haven’t been able to fly for more than 10 hours yet. But whenever I get the opportunity, I go to a flying school to practice.” Vishal has flown the Cessna propeller-based aircraft, and his favourite is the Boeing 787 Dream liner. He even went to the Dubai Air Show, where the latest technology and aircraft were on display.
