Plymouth Splash screen does not work for Debian Jessie in Virtual Box -> won't fix for now

I am using Virtual Box version 4.3.30. I have this weird problem while using Debian Jessie (8.1.0) as my guest OS and I think this problem is with everybody using Virtual Box and running Jessie as guest OS.
Problem: Instead of proper splash screen at boot log time, three squares are displayed in centre of screen
Description: While I configure my Debian Jessie OS to show Plymouth Splash screen on bootup, It should show plymouth splash screen while bootup. This issue was also observed with latest plymouth package (0.9.0-9) in wheezy.
Exceptions: Plymouth Splash screen is working properly if I install Debian Jessie in dual boot environment or on physical machine
Probable Problem: Looks like there is some problem/Limitations with "Emulation of Graphics Card in Virtial Box", as I have tested this thing on both Intel and Nvidia Graphics cards but it doesn't work on Virtual Box, However it does work when installed in dual boot environment ( As real graphics card would be available )
I am configuring plymouth using instructions on debian's plymouth page. https://wiki.debian.org/plymouth
