"I fared poorly in school... simply because I was really dumb," confessed actor Sumeet Vyas before students of the BITS institute in Goa recently. The talk, which was part of a TEDX event, revealed a little-known side of Vyas, who hit the right notes with the web series, Permanent Roommates.

Vyas minced no words describing his initial struggle, but if there was one takeaway for the young students from the talk, it was this: "I keep rewiring myself as an actor every few years. What my priority was until a few years ago, doesn't feature in my bucket list today. But that's what life is."
