They set screens on fire but were they ever grilled for not attending their lectures or for not scoring enough? This is a question that popped up in my mind as a student whenever my mum used to scold me for not studying. So today, I will tell you how much qualified these divas of Bollywood are!
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Aishwarya was keen on taking up medicine as her profession and was very passionate about Zoology. However, fate had other plans and the beauty queen landed up in Raheja College for a degree in Architecture. However, Ash had to drop out halfway as she won the Miss World title at the age of 21.
Vidya once said in an interview that in her family, getting a formal degree is a must, even if she wanted to pursue acting. Vidya Balan holds a major in Sociology from St. Xavier’s, Mumbai and if that wasn’t enough, she then went on to do an MA from the University of Mumbai. She also used to perform at the reputed Prithvi theatre before starting in movies.
Kareena Kapoor Khan
Kareena did her schooling from Jamnabai Narsee in Mumbai, then Welhams in Dehradun. She studied commerce for two years at Mithibai College in Mumbai. She later registered for a three-month summer course in Microcomputers at Harvard University in the United States. After a year at the Government Law College in Mumbai, she quit studying, for acting. Since then, there has been no looking back.
Karisma was no scholar. She studied at the Cathedral and John Cannon School in Mumbai till the sixth standard. After that it was movies, movies and lots of movies for her.
She comes from an army background. A lot of her schooling was done in the US, and then she came to India to finish the rest. She studied at Army School, Bareilly and then at Jai Hind College in Mumbai. She wanted to become a software engineer or a criminal psychologist but had to drop out before winning Miss World title.
She has a very solid educational background. After completing her schooling from ‘The Convent of Jesus and Mary’, Ambala, she joined Manchester Business School, UK to study Finance and Economics. She came back to Mumbai and joined Yash Raj Films as a Marketing & PR consultant, until she auditioned for movie roles and bagged Ladies VS Ricky Bahl and Ishaqzaade.
Soha Ali Khan
Soha Ali Khan did her schooling from Delhi’s The British School and then went to Oxford to study geography. She also holds a degree in International Relations from London School of Economics and Political Science.
One of the highly educated actresses, Preity did her Bachelors in English Honors from the very prestigious St. Bede’s College in Shimla. Apart from that, she is a graduate in Psychology and post graduate in Criminal Psychology also.
After schooling at Sophia High School in Bangalore, Deepika joined Mount Carmel College, Bangalore. But she gave up studies for modelling and acting. She enrolled with the Indira Gandhi National Open University’s Bachelor of Arts course in Sociology but never completed it.
For Anushka, first it was the Army School and then Mount Carmel College in Bangalore. She was picked up by designer Wendell Rodricks to model for Fashion Week.
Well now you know, what are the educational qualifications of our favorite actresses? Though, to be successful in Bollywood no one needs degrees or certificates, some of the above actresses have time and again stated that they regret not completing their basic education.
