We all think that our Bollywood celebrities have mastered only acting skills, it’s all acting what they know. But, what most of us don’t know is, some of the celebrities apart from being highly skilled actors are also highly educated. I know this would come as a surprise to many of you but it’s important to know that there is more to them behind all the glitters and glamour.
1. Parineeti Chopra
Don’t be surprised if say that this bubbly actress has received a triple Honours degree in Business, Finance and Economics from the Manchester Business School in England. And she had aspired to become an investment banker before she entered B-town.
2. Amitabh Bachchan
Amitabh Bachchan is considered to be the royalty of the Indian film industry. Being a son of pioneer poet and writer it’s not any surprise that Big B is quite educated. He has completed his graduation from Sherwood College in Nainital. Post the gradution he went on to do a double major in Science and Arts from Kirori Mal College. He was also awarded honorary doctorate degrees from Queensland University in Australia.
3. Preity Zinta
This dimple girl with an contagious smile and strong personality is one of the highest educated Bollywood actresses in the industry. Preity Zinta has a bachelor’s degree in English with honors from St. Bede’s College in Shimla. She has also started a graduate program in psychology and then went on to do her master’s degree in criminal psychology.
4. Shah Rukh Khan
In my view Shah Rukh Khan is one of the most intelligent human on earth. His sharp wit and intelligent sense of humor reflect how educated he is. Shah Rukh has a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Hansraj College, Delhi University. He had done his schooling from St, Columba’s School where the actor was awarded the ‘Sword of Honour’ (the greatest felicitation given to a student by the institution) for being an exceptional student.
5. Soha Ali Khan
Having a royal lineage makes her sophisticated already, and being well educated is like icing on the cake. Soha has studied at The British School in New Delhi and then she went to Oxford to study geography. Not only this, she studied International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science and earned a Masters Degree. My Goss, I love her already!
6. John Abraham
This handsome hunk is just not muscles, he has brain too! John got his Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Jai Hind College and received an MBA from Mumbai Education Trust.
7. Randeep Hooda
After finishing his schooling, Randeep went to Melbourne for higher education. To surprise, Randeep has both, a Bachelors and a Masters’ degree in Business Management and Human Resource Management.
8. Vidya Balan
We all love her for her excellent acting skills, but not many people know that she has got a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from St. Xavier’s College and also a Master’s degree too from the University of Mumbai.
9. Ameesha Patel
‘Gadar’ girl has studied Economics at the Tufts University at Medford in Massachusetts, where she went on to win a gold medal for her papers. Going a step ahead, she even obtained a degree in Biogenetic engineering from Boston University.
