MUMBAI: Shashank Vyas, who is known for playing the role of Dr. Jagdish Singh in the longest-running show Balika Vadhu, feels that actors’ names should also be mentioned in the credit part.
On this, he recently said to an entertainment portal, “I noticed this like three-four 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.”
He continued, “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 been mentioned. Why has this question not been raised till now?”
The Roop – Mard Ka Naya Swaroop actor further opined that the viewers should know the actors by their real names.
He said, “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 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.”
Shashank further highlighted the fact that people also know Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan’s names but their names are also mentioned in the credits of their films, but that this is not happening on television.
Do you agree with Shashank?
