It is being said that Aamir Khan, Irrfan and Manoj Bajpayee helped the late actor with his finances, in the latter stages of his life. An alumni of National School of Drama, Shrivallabh Vyas was a known face in theatre, movies and television.

He had suffered a brain stroke, followed by a paralytic attack, in 2008, while shooting for a film in Gujarat. He had been in paralysis, ever since. His wife had approached the Cine and TV Artists Association (CINTAA) for financial help, but was disappointed at the meagre sum offered. The family shifted to Jaisalmer from Mumbai, and later to Jaipur for treatment.
