Mumbai | B-town actors like Emraan Hashmi, Arjun Rampal, Kartik Aarya and Shilpa Shetty have cleared the test of entrance and survival in the film industry, but some of them were notorious students in their school days.

The actors took a trip down the memory lane ahead of teachers’ day.

Emraan, the ‘serial kisser’ of Bollywood, confesses that he had a crush on one of his teachers.

“When I was in third or fourth standard I had a crush on my teacher. But one of my best teachers has been my maths professor who really worked very hard. He was my tuition teacher and used to keep classes at 4.30 in the morning.
Imagine, waking up that early,” Emraan told PTI.

With Rampal, it was other way round! “I was my teachers favourite, both as a good and naughty boy. I think the teachers had a crush on me. I knew how I had to get out of trouble,” he said.

“Dabangg” villain Sonu Sood was not at all a bad boy in his school days.

“I was great as a student, very sincere and obedient. I was always my teachers’ favourite as I was a very serious student,” he said.

“Dhadkan” actress Shilpa says the greatest teacher of her life is her mother.

“I was an above average child, but I was very popular. My biggest guru. I have learnt the most from is my mother. All mothers are the first guru in their children’s life.”

Daisy Shah, who made her debut with “Jai Ho”, says she prefers to be a student on-screen.

“I was good at studying but never wanted to study. I would like to play a student than a teacher on screen.For all the masti and not controlling people.”
