I don't care how fancy your piano vst is, it's gonna sound pretty fake if you don't vary the velocities enough. On a real piano, you generally don't hit every key as hard as physically possible all the time.

Re: How to get FL keys to sound like a real grand piano?

Speaking as just a piano player alone one thing people are often unaware of is HOW IMPORTANT the sustain pedal is in playing the piano. I pretty much wont play a piano without one.

Secondly the reverb and harmonics. So adding these aspects will add the richness. I like recording something on a real piano and sampling it.

You're better off with a Kontakt library if you don't own an actual piano and a decent mic. Velocity curves, reverb, and impulse responses are great, but that's not how you'd achieve an actual sound.
