I don't know about the body rotation thing... I know that the video you posted was titled as if that was a courtship behavior but I looked at a video of wild birds of the same species and the male did not do that -he was 'bowing' to the hen.
If he were mine, I would re-evaluate my entire husbandry starting with light quality/schedule and diet because these are Indian birds and they all consume little protein and a lot of plant material.
I moved him into the sitting room away from all the other birds so he has the cage all to himself and I will dim the lights as the sun starts to go down and then turn it off completely.He doesn't eat much protein foods and he loves Kale and Broccoli is a favourite too.
