For anyone to grow in life, education is really important. It is not just an instrument to grow your profession, but education holistically nurtures a person and gives one knowledge and sensitivity. It is a common view in India that one does not require educational qualifications to become a successful actor in Bollywood.
This idea has diminished when it is now conducted in very modern ways and the whole process of producing a film has been technology-heavy. Here is a list of 10 highly trained Bollywood actors:
1. Amitabh Bachchan
Everyone loves Amitabh Bachchan in movies like Sholay, Kalia, Baghban, Paa for his path-breaking success, but very few know that Bollywood’s BigB is also highly educated. He graduated from Sherwood College in Nainital and then graduated from Kirori Mal College with a double degree in Arts and Technology. In addition to that, he has been awarded an honorary doctorate from the Queensland University in Australia.
2. Shah Rukh Khan
The King of Bollywood is indeed one of the most academically trained stars. In both his school and college days, SRK was excellent as a student and even won many distinctions to show for his excellent efforts. He studied at St. Columbia College, then went to Hansraj College to obtain his economics degree, and then went to Jamia Milia Islamia to study Mass Communication. However, he did not complete it and dropped out to try his luck in acting.
3. John Abraham
John Abraham graduated from the renowned Narsee Monjee College of Management Studies, from where he graduated with an MBA degree. He graduated from Bombay Scottish School and then went on to receive an economics degree from Jai Hind College.
4. Vidya Balan
In the Pareenita and Kahani franchises, we love Vidya Balan. While Balan entered the acting world with the classic television show Hum Paanch at the age of 16, she is one of Bollywood’s most trained actors. Before opting to work as a profession, she graduated in Sociology from St Xavier’s College and obtained a Master’s degree from Mumbai University.
5. Ayushmann Khurana
The buzz in the country is Ayushmann Khurana, almost destroying the entire nation over him. Khurrana has a rich educational record as well, including a Bachelor’s degree from DAV College, Chandigarh, in English literature. He has graduated from the School of Communication Studies in Chandigarh with a Master’s in Mass Communication.
6. Parineeti Chopra
Parineeti Chopra holds a triple honorary degree from Manchester Business School, UK, in Business, Finance, and Economics, which is equally remarkable as her Bollywood film career.
7. Soha Ali Khan
Soha Ali Khan, the princess of Pataudi, daughter of Sharmila Tagore, and Tiger Pataudi both hold a Bachelor’s degree from Balliol College, Oxford, in Modern History. She also holds a Master’s degree from the London School of Economics and Political Science, UK, in International Affairs.
8. Randeep Hooda
Randeep Hooda is also one of the Bollywood industry’s most learned stars. Hooda completed his degree in Marketing and postgraduate research in Australian Corporate Administration and Human Resource Management.
9. Varun Dhawan
People would assume that it wouldn’t be highly trained for actors like Varun Dhawan, but he is one of the most trained Bollywood actors. Dhawan has a degree from Nottingham Trent University, UK, in Business Administration.
10. Sara Ali Khan
With her charming personality, Sara Ali Khan has succeeded in winning both hearts, and she acknowledges education as a justification for her faith and charm. Khan studied at the Besant Montessori School in Mumbai, and then Khan studied history and political science at Columbia University in New York.
