Handsome and eloquent––that’s what comes to mind when most people think of TV actor Shashank Vyas. So it’s quite a surprise that this eligible bachelor has faced rejection in an arranged marriage setup. Shashank, who is known for playing the role of Ravish in the popular show Jaana Na Dil Se Door, says this was his first experience of an arranged meeting. “I met this girl once and she was like ‘ask me whatever you want.’ I thought I should tell her everything about my life. So I told her that I work 13-14 hours a day and that there will also be times when I won’t have any work.” He even warned her about financial problems, link-up rumours, hits and flops and other problems an actor faces in the television industry. “I wanted to show her all sides of being an actor. There was no further meeting after that, so clearly she didn’t say yes.”
Shashank, who is also known for his role as Jagya in Balika Vadhu, says he initially he was hesitant in marrying an actor, but not anymore. “I used to say that I will never marry someone from the industry. But now that I see Ravi (Dubey) and Sargun(Mehta), I feel that maybe actors find is easy to understand other actors. Life is full of surprises and I am open to this one,” says Shashank.
Although Shashank is in no hurry to get married, his father is constantly on the lookout. “ He keeps meeting relatives for this and keeps talking about how needs to find a ladki for me. For me, age is not the only criteria. I am actor and I have a career graph, which I want to concentrate on,” says the 30-year-old.
