As an actor she may be a good learner, but Kareena Kapoor says during her school days she wasn't a very bright student and teachers didn't pay much attention to her.

The actress, Unicef's celebrity advocate, was in the capital Thursday to launch a Child-friendly Schools and Systems package.

On the occasion, ahead of Teachers' Day, she recalled her school days and said: "My mother used to wake me up at 6 a.m. for school. I would tell her to give me one more hour to sleep. I thought I had the pressure of carrying a heavy bag.

"I would even sleep a bit in class. I wasn't given much attention (by teachers) because I was an average student. So, I wanted to study at home or watch movies."

However, the 33-year-old, who made her acting debut in 2000 with "Refugee", added that "teachers are as important as moms", which is why interaction between teachers and students is essential.

"When a child is punished, there should be an explanation. So interaction is important," said the daughter of yesteryear actors Babita and Randhir Kapoor.

    You are also an average actor with some looks. You are surviving on high dose of glamour and fashion.
