Sumeet Vyas is an Indian actor and writer who has worked extensively in theatre productions and web series and has acted in quite a few films and TV series in supporting roles. Although he had worked in about 10 films and 5 TV series by 2014, he only came into the spotlight later that year with the release of the TVF (The Viral Fever productions) romantic comedy web series titled Permanent Roommates.

Other than Permanent Roommates (2014, 2016), he has starred in popular web series such as TVF Tripling (2016, 2019), Official Chukyagiri (2016), Official CEOgiri (2018), RejctX (2019), and The Verdict – State vs Nanavati (2019). As a writer, he has co-written the scripts for both the seasons of TVF Tripling as well as the script for the 2015 web series Bang Baaja Baaraat, which was produced by Y-Films, a subsidiary of the renowned Indian production house Yash Raj Films (YRF).
