When Jimmy Shergil wore a turban
August 16, 2007 14:58 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 Dr Sumeet Sukhi, who studied in the same school as Jimmy Shergil.

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 | Twinkle Khanna | Hema Malini

I studied with Jimmy Shergill [Images] at the Punjab Public School, Nabha (Punjab) in the mid-1980s.

Jasjit (his official name) was an introvert and a dignified guy. He didn't speak much and was courteous to the girls.

He wore a turban then. Because of his aquiline features and good looks, he was better known in our school as Smarty. He was average in his studies and one of the few laidback guys.

I wish him luck in all his endeavours.

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.
