Education is considered the most important and first milestone of a human’s life. When a child takes birth, one thing he learns after the word “Mama” and “Papa” is “If I don’t study well, zindagi barbaad ho jayegi”. But there are many examples of people, who broke the “Education is must” stereotype.
These people shined like stars in the world, earned huge amount of money and respect, have vast knowledge about things and that too without following the standard education system. Out of those people, we’ll talk about some Bollywood stars.
Here you need to understand one thing that education is still very important part of life but it’s not the one and only way that will lead you towards success. You just need to know the other way or there should be a guide who can help you walk through it. So here we go-
1. Aamir Khan
Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan is famous worldwide for his perfection but surprisingly he didn’t complete his traditional education. The actor was just 16 when he performed in a silent film Paranoia. The appreciation he got for the performance encouraged him to join theatre and be a full-time actor. He still tells that everything he has learnt in his life is from films and theatre.
2. Kareena Kapoor Khan
Kareena had acting in her genes and knew from the very start that she wants to have a career as an actress. In between, she tried to pursue commerce and law but dropped out of the college to make her Bollywood debut.
3. Alia Bhatt
Bollywood’s youngest star Alia Bhatt completed her school education and never joined college to pursue a career in acting. Films like Highway, Udta Punjab, Dear Zindagi etc gave her great appreciation, love, fame and money. This is more than what education could’ve given.
4. Akshay Kumar
Akshay Kumar dropped from his college to learn martial arts. He was average in studies and wanted to have a career in sports. With the support of family, he completed his training in martial arts. He was so good in it that Bollywood filmmakers started casting him in their films. The rest is history.
5. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Aishwarya Rai is one of the most beautiful and talented Bollywood stars. The actress has got appreciation in India as well as other countries. Interestingly, lack of education didn’t come as a barrier in her path.
6. Salman Khan
The best bet of producers and the most eligible bachelor of B-Town Salman Khan completed his schooling and decided not to continue studies for his career as an actor. This superstar has most number of Highest Grossers in his list.
7. Deepika Padukone
Deepika Padukone tried hard to take traditional education but couldn’t do due to her hectic schedule as a model. Her hard work and passion in acting led her towards success and made her name world famous.
8. Priyanka Chopra
Priyanka Chopra had to quit her graduation to give proper time in modelling. But there was nothing to stop PeeCee, who rocked Hollywood, after having millions of fans in Bollywood.
9. Katrina Kaif
Katrina Kaif and her family had to move from one place to another as her mother was a social worker. She couldn’t join a school, but took education from private tutors.
10. Tiger Shroff
