    Sushant Singh Rajput, who is all set to debut in Kai Po Che, was a brilliant student. He not only qualified for a scholarship, but also secured seventh place in the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) 2003. He enrolled for mechanical engineering course, but later dropped out of college to follow his dreams of joining the glamour industry. TOI traces the steps of some of the other actors who have good academic background, but are pursuing their passion for acting...

    Aamir Khan's bhanja Imran Khan is one of the few actors who have a degree in filmmaking. After passing out from Freemont High School in California, Khan went to Los Angeles and got a filmmaking degree from Los Angeles branch of New York Film academy. We wonder if we will ever see him direct a film!

    Varun Dhawan
    David Dhawan's son was born with a silver spoon. But, through his acting acumen in Student Of The Year, he has shown the world that he has it in him to carve a niche for himself.
