"You guided me when I was lost; You supported me when I was weak. You have enlightened me and today whatever I am is because of you my Teacher.' " Unknown
The above words stand true for our Telly celebs who owe it all to their teachers and on this Teacher's Day they wish to thank all their teachers for being a guiding light in their life.
With few of the television celebrities that we got in touch with, we got to know that some were also the Teacher's pet during school and college. They also spoke about their favorite teacher and gave a message for the teachers on this very special day.
Here is what they said...
Shamin Mannan last seen in Sanskaar - Dharohar Apnon Ki - "I was a teacher's pet as I was very much a studious and obedient kid during school. The good thing was that I was the pet of my favorite teacher Raj Khuva. One of the other teachers who is my favorite is Neeraj Kabi. He is my theatre workshop teacher. Neeraj sir has not only taught me acting but also about general things in life. I admire him a lot for all the support and teachings that he has given me. I have changed in a good way after attending his workshop. Teachers are to be thanked and remembered always for their good work in teaching us the values and morals in our life. A very Happy Teacher's Day to all the teachers in my life."
Kanwar Dhillon seen in Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha Season 2 - "I have always been a teacher's pet in school and in college. I was very much committed to my studies and used to score pretty well and that was the quality that my teachers liked in me very much. But well the special treatment that I used to get from my teachers was loved by me. Every teacher has taught me something in my life which has been very useful and will be in future too. I would like to thank all my teachers for their support and teachings. Happy Teacher's Day to all the teachers."
Chhavi Pandey will be seen as a female lead in the upcoming show Ek Boond Ishq - "I was Meena teacher's favorite student during school days. She has taught me the value of punctuality which has helped me a lot. I miss her a lot and I wish she was still alive as she was one gem as a person. Also my favorite teacher is my dad who teaches me music. I am a singer and all the credit goes to my father who taught me singing. Teacher's day is not the only day to thank your teachers in fact we should thank them every day."
Hiten Tejwani seen in Pavitra Rishta - "I was not a teacher's pet during school or college. But yes I am thankful and will always be to each and every teacher in my life as they taught me something or the other in my life which has contributed to making me the person that I am today. I would like to thank my parents who are also my teachers and who have been like a guiding light in my life.
Jyotsna Chandola seen in Haunted Nights - Kaun Hai Woh? - "I have always been a favorite student of all the teachers in my school. I was a very active student be it in studies, sports or even talking (laughs), and this was the reason which made me the favorite of all the teachers and also the principal. I have got to learn a lot from all the teachers and I fall short of words when I have to thank all the teachers as they deserve more than that. Even during college I was very much an active student and always used to be caught for talking in the class. My brother is in the same college in which I was, and all the teachers keep asking him about me and also tell him that you speak really less, your sister was one talkative student in the class. My teachers have added a meaning to my life and have given me the knowledge that is helping me in my present and will help in future too. I thank all my teachers every day for being an inspiration to me. We should love and support all the teachers in our life and learn from them as much as we can. Happy Teacher's Day to all the teachers."
Pushkar Goggiaa to be seen in the upcoming show Dharamshetra - "I was not a teacher's pet on school or college but yes I was a disciplined guy. My favorite teacher is Mrs. Riya Sharma who was my Marketing Management teacher in college. I am still in touch with her and I wish to be always in touch with her. She was the one who made this tough subject so interesting that it became really easy for me to understand. On this Teacher's Day, I express my gratitude to all the teachers for their constant inspiration and motivation during my school and college days, which has made me the person that I am today. They were just not my teacher but also my friend, philosopher, a guide and a mentor."
Akhlaque Khan last seen in Haunted Nights - "I was a very disciplined boy during school but I was not a teacher's pet and neither wanted to be one. But like others even I had a favorite teacher Mr. Raja Dasgupta during school. I am still in touch with him and now is more like a friend to me. I am happy that there is a day in respect of those important people in our life who touch and influence our life in a very important way. Happy Teacher's Day to all the teachers."
Sana Amin Sheikh seen in Gustakh Dil - "I owe it to my teachers for making me the person that I am today. My school teachers were very fond of me as I was a very active student. My favorite teacher during school was my Hindi teacher Mrs. Kapoor who taught me to speak and right Hindi as I was not that well in that subject. Today that I speak fluently Hindi is all because of her and I am very thankful to her. I would also want to thank Sonu Nigam for being my guru and my director Anshuman Singh Kishore who teaches me how to be Laajo in the show Gustakh Dil."
Siddharth Arora will be seen in the show Yeh Hai Aashiqui - "I really look forward to teacher's day as I have so many fond memories of that day and most importantly the importance of a teacher in my life. I was one of the most naughtiest kid in my school and that was also one of the reason that I was a pet of all the teachers. I wish a very happy Teacher's day to all my teachers from school and college, my parents and also my directors Mahesh Dattani, a theatre director and Maan sir the director of Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha Season 2, who have helped me become a better actor."
