Bollywood Stars who made their place in Indian educational books
School education forms the foundation of one’s life. With increasing media exposure, schools today are including living legends and their achievements in the textbook and that is very good to happen. The purpose is to teach children not just about the current event but also about life’s various lessons. Let’s have a look at some Indian celebrities who made it possible or almost made it to the school curriculum.
Few celebrities who have been featured in the textbooks;
1. Sushant Singh Rajput or SSR
Late Sushant Singh Rajput appeared recently in a school textbook in West Bengal as his picture from Pavitra Rishta with co-star Ankita Lokhande got used to supposedly portray what a father figure looks like.
2. Farhan Akhtar
Farhan Akhtar made it to a textbook in West Bengal but due to some confusion. Instead of using a picture of athlete Milkha Singh, a school in West Bengal used his picture. This error was further pointed out and corrected.
Superstar Rajinikanth’s life is indeed inspiring. He is studied by many students as a chapter based on his life has been incorporated in the CBSE textbook of Learning to Communicate. The name of the chapter is ‘From Bus Conductor To Superstar’.
4. Akshay Kumar
Akshay Kumar reportedly appeared in CBSE’s GK books of class 7 as students got asked about his real name. It did not go down very well with the Telangana education board.
5. Priyanka Chopra
Priyanka Chopra also found herself in the textbook as her name got added in CBSE’s Environmental Science textbook. A chapter with the title Roving Families; Shifting Homes describes her life as a child who had to keep shifting homes and adapt to new places being the daughter of a military man.
