'I studied with Twinkle Khanna'
August 10, 2007 15:01 IST

We asked readers to tell us if they had grown up or studied with movie or television celebrities. And we got a great response!

Sharing his memories is Navin Shenoy, who was in the same school as Twinkle Khanna [Images].

Also read: I studied with...

Mallika Sherawat | Sushmita Sen | Vidya Balan | Madhu Sapre | Shamita Shetty | Aishwarya Rai | Celina Jaitley | Shah Rukh Khan | Sakshi Tanwar Shahid Kapoor | Isha Koppikar | Sonu Nigam | Anil Kapoor | Ajay Devgan | Shaad Ali | Kareena Kapoor | Aditi Gowitrikar

I studied with Twinkle Khanna or Tina as she was called in standard nine at New Era High School, Panchgani (a hill station near Mumbai well-known for its boarding schools).

She was good in studies and always ranked among the top 10 in our class. She used to take part in school plays. But most of the time, she kept to herself and had very few friends at school.

I will never forget an incident when she got up to give her maths paper (answer sheet) to a guy in the middle of the standard ten board examinations.

One of the exam invigilators caught both of them in the act and in panic, Twinkle nearly tore her answer sheet. However, the invigilator knew who she was and let her off with a warning.

Grew up with a star in the same neighbourhood? Studied with them in school? Had a star friend in college? Hung out at the canteen together? Bunked classes? Maybe even hit on the same pretty people?

What were they like? What did you think of them then? Did you ever foresee their success?

We look forward to hearing from you
