Bollywood can teach you a thing or two about education.

Many Bollywood stars are college dropouts.

But their enthusiasm to attend a college on screen is to be seen to believe.

They even take on exams keenly.

As you get ready for a new year in school and college, Sukanya Verma gives you tips on how to be a model student, and she takes it all from the pages of Bollywood.
