Lessons from Bollywood: How to study for exams!

Last updated on: March 03, 2016 18:44 IST

Exam tension? Bollywood offers some wise lessons.

They might not go to school any more but actors do know a great deal about exams.

It’s called Friday when the box office decides the fate of the film and, consequently, their career.

On screen, of course, they’re playing the carefree student all the time. Between the indispensable song and dance, it's amazing how they squeeze in some time to study too.

All right then, final exams hanging over your head?

Just follow Bollywood’s lead.

 

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Immerse yourself in studies, make notes, mug them, burn the midnight oil, the works and you’re sure to go a long way like our super successful Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Kyun! Ho Gaya Na...

 

Madhavan, Aamir Khan

Tired of sitting indoors? Solve sums on walls and water tanks or any blank space until you can think loud and clear like Aamir Khan, R Madhavan and Sharman Joshi in 3 Idiots.

 

Akshay Kumar

Sometimes things make more sense when looking at it upside down as Akshay Kumar finds out in Desi Boyz.

 

Dimple Kapadia

Don’t forget about your book when you daydream about a chocolate-faced Rishi Kapoor like Dimple Kapadia in Bobby.

 

Alia Bhatt, Arjun Kapoor

All the same it doesn’t hurt to mix business (studies) with pleasure if you have Alia Bhatt’s concentration skills or Arjun Kapoor’s patience in 2 States.

 

Urmila Matondkar

Younger siblings tend to pester when exams loom large and they’ve got no one to play. Ignore them like a wise Urmila Matondkar in Masoom.

 

Taare Zameen Par

Sometimes it’s the restless younger kid who needs supervision and a no-nonsense mommy sitting sternly like Darsheel Safary has Tisca Chopra in Taare Zameen Par.

 

Ranbir Kapoor

Give a subject your best shot even if you abhor it like Ranbir Kapoor hates mathematics in Tamasha.

 

Varun Dhawan

Be a closet nerd like Varun Dhawan in Student of the Year and hide your textbook in those music sheets to cram between jamming sessions.

 

kajol, Shah Rukh Khan

Be best friends with the brightest kid in college like Shah Rukh Khan has Kajol in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to copy notes from or pin you down and shove those difficult lessons down the throat.
