Several Bollywood actors took a trip down memory lane on the occasion of the Teachers’ Day which was celebrated on September 5.
Some Bollywood actors like Emraan Hashmi, Arjun Rampal, Kartik Aarya and Shilpa Shetty were notorious students in their school days. The actors took a trip down Memory Lane on the occasion.
Emraan Hashmi confesses that he had a crush on one of his teachers. “When I was in third or fourth standard I had a crush on my teacher. But one of my best teachers has been my maths professor who really worked very hard. He was my tuition teacher and used to keep classes at 4.30 in the morning. Imagine, waking up that early for a little kid,” Emraan said.
With Arjun Rampal, it was other way round! “I was my teacher’s favourite, both as a good and naughty boy. I think the teachers had a crush on me. I knew how I had to get out of trouble,” he said.
“Dabangg” villain Sonu Sood was not at all a bad boy in his school days. “I was great as a student, very sincere and obedient. I was always my teachers’ favourite as I was a very serious student,” he said.
“Dhadkan” actress Shilpa Shetty says the greatest teacher of her life is her mother. “I was an above average child, but I was very popular. My biggest guru… I have learnt the most from is my mother. All mothers are the first guru in children’s life.”
Daisy Shah, who made her debut with “Jai Ho”, says she wants to play the role of a student on screen. “I was good at studying but never wanted to study. I would like to play a student than a teacher on screen. For all the masti and not controlling people.”
Actress Kiara Advani, who will be seen in “MS Dhoni: The Untold Story”, said she studied only before the exams. “I was superb at mugging. That’s how I managed to keep my grades up. My favourite subject was psychology and my worst subject was science,” she said. Kiara who will be playing the role of Dhoni’s wife Sakshi in the biopic would love to play a teacher. “My mother and grandmother are both teachers, so I’m sure it’ll come very naturally to me,” she said.
Actress Amyra Dastur was very good academically, but was a very naughty kid. “I was definitely one of the least well-behaved students. I always back-answered and even carried a pillow to school so that I could sleep in class. But I was always let off the hook because I managed to attain 90 percent in all my subjects,” Amyra said. – CINEWS
