Bollywood, the world that many dream to be a part
of and once they're in, very little else matters. Many of the stars
enter the industry without completing their education because of the
exciting offers they receive, whereas there are some who set their foot
in this field after completing their education. BollyCurry brings to you
a list of Bollywood stars who have pursued higher education.
Bachchan is a multi-talented superstar, no doubts about that. He is
also the perfect example to start off this list. Son of the renowned
author and poet, the late Harivansh Rai Bachchan, Big B graduated from
Sherwood College in Nainital and later went on to completing a double
major in Science and Arts from the Kirori Mal College in New Delhi.
Thereafter, he moved to Mumbai to enter the glam world and boy, are we
glad for that or what?!
Parineeti Chopra, who made her debut with the movie Ladies vs Ricky Behl
didn't want to be an actor to begin with. Her dream was to always
become an investment banker. To pursue that dream, she studied at
Manchester Business School in the UK where she graduated with a triple
honours degree in Business, Economics and Finance! Kudos, Pari!
The be-dimpled Ayushmann Khurrana
of Vicky Donor
has not only majored in English Literature, but also has achieved a
Masters degree in Mass Communication from the School of Communication,
Punjab University in Chandigarh. No wonder he connects well with
audiences around the world!
ever bubbly and effervescent Preity Zinta
has to have the most
interesting degree combinations. After having received an honours degree
in English, she went onto earn a postgraduate degree in Criminal
Psychology! A bit awe-inspiring and slightly intimidating, if you ask
is one of the very few South-Indian stars to have carved a niche for himself in Bollywood. The 3 Idiots
actor is not only a graduate in Electronics but has also been a winner
of the Maharashtra Best Cadet title! Can someone say "woah!"?
Ali Khan may not appear on the big screen as often as we'd like, but
she certainly has an educational background to keep everyone on their
toes. After attending the British School in New Delhi, she went on to
complete her undergraduate at the Balliol College, Oxford, UK. She is
also an alumnus of the London School of Economics, where she received a
masters degree in International Relations and Political Science. Beauty
with sheer brains, right here.
ever so handsome hunk John Abraham
not only has a body to die for, but
is also quiet the smarty pants. He has a bachelors degree in Economics
from Jai Hind College and a masters degree in Management Sciences.
fashionista of Bollywood, Sonam Kapoor
went to the United World College
of South East Asia in Singapore for her schooling and achieved an
International Baccalaureate Diploma. She also studied Political Science
and Economics from the University of East London.
That's it for now, folks. If the above celebs
surprised you, don't forget to look up Sonu Sood, Randeep Hooda,
Sonakshi Sinha, Imran Khan and Varun Dhawan. You never know what you
might find out!
