Who was your favourite teacher in school or college and why?
Looking back… all of them. This also includes the ones who were tough with me!
What is that one thing you have learnt from your teachers, which will remain with you forever?
When a teacher teaches, its their style of teaching and the way of explaining that is something that is bound to help through the rest of one’s life. So, for me, I always admired the impeccable style of teaching of my teachers. This is something which will remain with me forever.
Which was your favourite subject and least favourite subject in school?
My most favourite subject in school was English, while the least favourite was Algebra.
If you were not an actor, would you have become a teacher?
Not really. I would have definitely been the chairman of a very big foreign company.
In school, were you a front bencher or a last bencher?
Totally a front bencher! I was a very attentive student.
Have you ever got punished by your teachers?
Yes. But, this was because someone misrepresented me and pointed out fingers at me for a mistake that I did not do at all! I was an ideal student in all the ways. It was very difficult to have any bad qualities associated with me.
Is there any punishment in school that you will remember for the rest of your life?
As a punishment for the mistake that I did not do, I was told to become a ‘murga’ by my teacher. I will always remember that. (smiles)
