It’s that day of the year yet again when we worship the people who have made us what we are today.Raising a toast to the ones who have guided, supported and enlightened us with the practicalities of life, our celebs jumped onto their social networking profiles to speak about the bonds they shared with their teachers.
The who’s who from the silver as well as the small screen wrote few encouraging words about the people who are partly responsible for shaping their life the way they wanted it.
Karan Johar And Aditya Chopra
Prolific film directors and the film-makers who revolutionized the concept of Hindi film romance with movies like ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, ‘My Name is Khan’ ‘Mohabbatein’ are none other than Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra. History has it that the Johar lad and the Chopra scion have always shared a beautiful bonding and those words just added more gravitas to their special ties of friendship. “Aditya Chopra was my film teacher….he made me realise my passion for the movies!!! He is the reason I am here today….thank you adi!!!” was the word from the film-maker whose upcoming flick ‘Student of The Year’ is already grabbing tabloid headlines!
The dusky damsel in distress who is awaiting the release of her magnum opus, ‘Raaz 3’ later this week took off time from her busy promotional spree to give homage to her teachers from Kolkata’s Bharatiya Viya bhavan (her school) through her tweets! “My teachers r responsible for who I am today.They encouraged me to be forthright,honest n responsible.Happy Teacher’s Day!”, exclaimed an excited and overtly effervescent Bipasha Basu!
The voice that gave many tears to ones eyes, the music that revamped the definition of Indian classical music, Kailash Kher who himself is a pioneer in Indian folk music took off to Twitter, yet again, to wish all Mothers a Happy Teachers’ Day. “Today is Teachers day, the biggest teacher in our life is Mother, n this day I would dadicate to all Mothers n womanhood, all respect” was his patronage to all Moms around the globe.
An actor par excellence, a theatrician, and a teacher to millions worldwide, Anupam Kher is an embodiment of super talent and versatility. “”Teaching is the greatest act of OPTIMISM.” Happy Teacher’s Day. :)” was what Bollywood’s favourite father had to say!
The Small Screen Stars:
Ronit Roy who is usually referred to as the ‘Amitabh Bachchan’ of the small screen and has captivated the Indian audience and the film fraternity with his ‘Udaan’ is a learner. “I do not have a mentor but I learn from everyone who has learning opportunity to offer. But the person I have learnt most in the industry is Aamir Khan.”
Tarana Raja Kapoor
Tarana Raja Kapoor also had something to chip in. “My favourite teacher was my chemistry teacher named Ms. Gomes. I am still in touch with her. I want to say to all school students that enjoy the learning and the experiences of school life. They will be your fondest memories through life!”
