We often read about how the Bollywood stars are not even graduate of have failed in schools and colleges. With this, we generalize that the people who can’t score well in academics go on to join the film line. However, this is not the case. There are several celebrities who are graduates or post-graduates in certain fields of academics, but they chose to become actors because of their passion or probably destiny had planned this for them.
ShahRukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Twinkle Khanna etc are just a few names to mention. Even Shakti Kapoor’s daughter Shraddha Kapoor falls into the list of being an excellent student. In an interview, she explained that she got about 90% in her 12th standard.
Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapoor had come for a film together last year titled ‘OK Jaanu’. During the promotions of the film, they were interviewed by Filmygyan where Sharddha got candid about her school life.
The actress was asked to comment if she had scored 95% in 12th. To this, she instantly replied, “Only in the 12th.”
Aditya Roy Kapoor’s mouth was wide open with shock as he couldn’t digest the fact. However, Shraddha further explained:
“I did a different board of studies. And I didn’t get a 95% in everything. I did IB board. And actually in the 10th and 11th, my marks were so bad that I decided that I’m gonna do it in 12th and I am gonna do it to such a level that I’ll be able to get admission in good colleges. So overall my score on IB was 32 on 40 something which is equivalent to between 85 and 90 overall.”
However, her co-star Aditya was not convinced and laughed it off.
