The actor has kind of started a debate in the television industry. Shashank Vyas has recently raised the issue of how actors’ names should be included in the credits of their shows. The actor, who is always known to speak his mind, said, “I noticed this like 3-4 months back when I was watching something on television. I was reading the credits part and suddenly I saw the closeup and I wondered why actors’ names are not part of it. I spoke about this to every actor who is working on television. Actors are working rigorously for 13-14 hours a day and meeting the deadlines of the telecast on a daily basis, and their names are not mentioned. Why has this question not been raised till now?” he asks.
 
The Roop — Mard Ka Naya Swaroop actor feels that while their fans love their characters, knowing their real identity is also important. “It’s true and it’s not wrong also. When people know you by your character, this means that you have done justice to your character and you have given the best of your efforts to play the role. I have done a big show and I am working in this industry, so people know my name. People also know Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan because their names are mentioned in the credits of their films. But why is it that this is not happening on television. People recognise us by our character, which is fine, but our real names are also important. The character’s name will exist until the existence of the show. When the show is big, people will remember the name for 6-8 months. But if the show doesn’t work, then the name will not be known,” he says.
