These 9 Bollywood Stars Prove The Importance Of Learning Outside The Classroom

You do not need a college degree to be an actor. This is why many Bollywood superstars of today do not boast of a highly academic resume. Since film-based graduation isn’t academically spread around the country right now, these superstars did not require a college degree to bag films. Let’s take a look at the celebs who dropped out of college for a career in Bollywood:

#1. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan


After receiving top marks in her HSC exams, the actress enrolled at Rachana Sansad Academy of Architecture. But she changed her mind later and pursued modeling instead.

#2. Akshay Kumar


After dropping out of Guru Nanak Khalsa College, the Khiladi went to Bangkok to learn martial arts and be a chef. The acting bug hit him when he returned to India and the rest is history.

#3. Priyanka Chopra


Pee Cee completed her school education at the Army Public School in Bareilly. Even though she enrolled in college, she decided to focus on acting, especially after winning Miss World.

#4. Deepika Padukone


The Padmaavat actress would have followed her father’s footsteps but turned to modeling instead. She even dropped out of Indira Gandhi National Open University due to scheduling conflicts.

#5. Salman Khan


The Bhai of Bollywood dropped out of St. Xavier’s College in Mumbai to become an actor. Do you think this was a wise decision?

#6. Kareena Kapoor Khan

While the Begum graduated from Mithibai College and went on to study at the Government Law College, she dropped out after a year realizing that acting was her true calling.

#7. Aamir Khan

After completing his HSC in Narsee Monjee College, Mr. Perfectionist gave up studying altogether, pursuing a career in films and acting. He was an AD to his uncle, Nasir Hussain in his initial years.

#8. Kangana Ranaut

She once had a dream of becoming a doctor but after scoring low marks on a test, the actress decided not to pursue medicine and veered towards modeling and subsequently, acting.

#9. Katrina Kaif

The actress was home-schooled by a series of tutors as her family constantly relocated in her childhood. So naturally, she did not go to college.

The purpose of this article is to draw attention towards the fact that relevant education in every field is much more significant than a cumulative higher education in fields the students aren’t interested in.

India being the star-driven country that it is, it would be a great service if our Bollywood stars lay as much importance on the need for relevant education in our movies, like 3 Idiots did.

Audiences Hail Karnan As A Masterpiece In Tamil Cinema

It’s finally here! ‘Karnan‘ starring Dhanush and directed by Mari Selvaraj has hit the theatres today. Touted to be one of biggest social dramas of the year, the film has been gaining much hype with its poster releases, music videos and the powerful trailer. Karnan also stars Malayalam actor Rajisha Vijaya who makes her Tamil debut with this film, alongside other actors such as Lakshmipriya Chandramouli, Gouri Kishen, Lal, and Yogi Babu in important roles. The cinematography has been handled by Theni Easwaran. Mari Selvaraj gained huge prominence for his grating caste drama ‘Pariyerum Perumal‘ which stunned audiences and critics for its open narration of the horror of the caste divide in society. This time around, the director once again sets the story in the rural milieu with Dhanush playing the titular role and a saviour-like figure of the masses. The audiences have spoken and the reviews are nothing short of stupendous.
