Teacher’s Day Special: Bollywood Actors Who Played Teachers On Screen

Importance of teachers in our life cannot be denied. Our first encounter with professional teachers is in school and then we meet so many people in life who become our teachers or mentors by teaching us various things. Not just the professional teachers in school and colleges, but our managers, colleagues and sometimes the situations can also become our teachers.

No doubt we always remember the teachers who loved us the most or taught us well. But there are some teachers who we remember because we had crush on them. Most of us had crush on our high-school of college teacher. Understanding the importance of teachers in life, Bollywood has also given due attention to them and have made movies on teacher-student relation. We have seen every type of teacher in movies like a rude one to hot and sexy teacher.

On this teacher’s day, let’s have a look at the Bollywood actors who played teachers on screen.

  1. Amitabh Bachchan

Amitabh Bachchan has played the role of a teacher in two movies ‘Black’ and ‘Aarakshan’.
