No matter how smart the actors are, they were all students to some teachers at one point or the other. Today being Teacher’s day, let’s look at some actors who were not only students but actually are teachers at a point of time in their lives.
September 5 is considered as teacher’s day, remembering the birthday of Sarvepalli Radhakrishna, who was one of the best teachers in not only India but also the whole world. Teacher’s day mostly focuses on remembering the most acclaimed teachers, who pioneered either new ways in educating the students or teachers whose selfless efforts made their students excel in tough fields.
