Who doesn’t love to bunk classes? Most, if not all, school- or college-goers look for an opportunity to bunk the boring lessons in the classroom. They think it is an adventure that must be taken before you leave school.

You’d be amazed to know that some of our favorite stars, too, bunked classes. One of them is Deepika Padukone.




The beautiful lady is now the most in-demand actress in Bollywood. Forbes just placed her sixth in the list of the highest-paid stars (both actors and actresses) in the Hindi film industry. She has won a million hearts and is making heads turn on the international stage as well.

It is obvious that people are interested in knowing more about her personal life. So someone put up this question on Quora:

“How is Deepika Padukone as a person in real life?”

And how many do you think would know that? Only those who have been or are close to her, of course!

It so happened that an anonymous user, who claims to be Deepika’s classmate from their days at Mount Carmel College in Bengaluru, responded to the answer.

The user mentioned clearly that Deepika had to bunk classes due to her commitments to badminton and modelling.

She was my classmate at Mount Carmel College for 6 months before she moved to Bombay for OSO. She used to keep bunking classes due to her professional commitments- badminton and modelling. I think she lost a lot of attendance because of that and that’s why decided to leave college…

That Deepika was a devoted badminton player should not be a surprise given the fact that she is the daughter of the legendary Prakash Padukone.



At the same time, the user also praised Deepika’s down-to-earth attitude:

But on the days that she used to visit college- she would come straight from the baddy court at Padukone Academy that’s down the road- she would be sweaty and still in her track pants. This is quite a big deal because MCC is like a fashion capital in Bangalore and all the girls are always dressed to the nines…

The user wrote quite a lot about the celebrity, as you can see here in this screenshot.




Well, that’s quite something!
