The Bollywood time table

Quite a few actors have played teachers in the movies. Some of them have been nerdy teachers like Amitabh Bachchan in Chupke Chupke, and some have been quite fashionable like Sushmita Sen in Main Hoon Naa. And some of them have been very understanding, like Aamir Khan's character in Taare Zameen Par.

But we already know all that.

Do you know what it was that these 'teachers' taught in school? Did you know Aamir plays an art teacher in TZP?

We decided to look at the subjects taught in the school of Bollywood.

Taught Botany in Chupke Chupke and Sanskrit in Dillagi

Dharmendra was impressive as the Botany professor in Chupke Chupke trying to teach his brother-in-law (Om Prakash) the importance of languages.

He repeated the teacher act in Dillagi where he woos fellow Chemistry teacher (Hema Malini) by teaching his students Kalidasa's love stories.
