Let us just accept the fact that life would have been so less better without having teachers in our lives. At every step they have guided us, held us and made sure we succeeded, even if it was at their cost. Today on Teacher’s Day, we bring to you Bollywood teachers who were a little more than teachers!
Amitabh Bachchan in Mohabbatein and Black
Who can forget the charm of Big B and the heaviness he leaves behind with his powerful performances in any of his films. He is generally so authoritative in his characters, imagine the authority in his voice when he plays a teacher, whether in Mohabbatein as Narayan Shanker or in Black as Debraj Sahai! Do you have a favourite between these two?
Aamir Khan in Taare Zameen Par
All of us would have not had teachers who taught us beyond the books and the four walls of the classroom. Ishaan Awasthi was definitely one of the unlucky ones! When you have a teacher like Ram Shankar Nikumbh how would you not grow?
Shahrukh Khan in Chak de India!
Not a teacher in the literal sense of the term, but a teacher at the end of the day, Kabir Khan is literally #CoachGoals. Which other coach teaches you, not just hockey, but so much about life!
Boman Irani in 3 Idiots
You may have not liked him. May? You definitely didn’t like Dr. Viru Sahastrabuddhe because of his orthodox nature. But let’s just get real, this is how most of our Principals have been. Woman Irani sure acted this part out so well, that you might just start liking him by the time the end credits roll!
Archana Puran Singh in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
You cannot forget Miss Briganza. CANNOT. Didn’t you too love your literature teacher? I sure did! But not one who taught Romeo Juliet and spoke about love so passionately!
Sushmita Sen in Main Hoon Na
Last but not the least, remember Miss Chandni in Main Hoon Na? How would you not! Even a person with a bad memory cannot forget this teacher, who you fell in love with! Guilty as charged?
