Teachers’ Day 2020: Here is How Bollywood Celebs Paid Respect to Their Mentors
Celebrities from the film industry have expressed their views and posted messages for their mentors on Teacher's Day 2020.

Indians are celebrating Teachers’ Day today on the occasion of birth anniversary of first Vice-President and second President of India Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. People are paying respect to their teachers or role models on social media on Teachers’ Day.

Celebrities from the film industry have also expressed their views and posted messages for their teachers. Actor Ajay Devgn has revealed who he considers his teacher. He took to Instagram to share a picture of himself in which he can be seen behind a camera. The actor referred to the camera as his teacher. "On Teachers Day, I salute the Camera. I’ve realised that every time I’m behind it, I’ve learnt something new. It’s an ongoing process," he said.

Actress Kangana Ranaut posted a throwback picture from her childhood days when she was in Class 1. Sharing the image she wrote that they had performed pahadi Natti and got an award for that from teachers. She added, “so many great teachers have added to my life directly or indirectly, my heartfelt gratitude to everyone.”

Actress Nimrat Kaur took to Twitter to express her gratitude towards all her teachers. Nimrat said all that she is because of the collective lessons she has learnt from her teachers. “I salute all such souls who’ve led their lives by example and strive to make the world outside and within us, a better place,” she stated.

Actress Shilpa Shetty Kundra posted a picture with her teacher who used to teach her Physics. In the picture, she and her teacher, who the actress has called Radha Miss, can be seen smiling while looking at a camera. “Nothing had changed. Maybe, I learnt to smile like that from her. She never held back her happiness,” she said.

How does one thank a person who has helped shape their life? Words truly can never do justice to express gratitude for the role teachers play in our lives. But, I will still want to take this opportunity and thank all my gurus, luckily have a photo with one of them, when I visited my school recently, and she was still there. My favourite Physics teacher (didn’t like the subject as much as I liked her ) Radha Miss, always had this joie de vivre, positive energy and a huge smile when she entered the class... Nothing had changed. Maybe, I learnt to smile like that from her. She never held back her happiness ❤️😄 In this lockdown especially seeing my son do virtual school and the patience we got to have with them, 😅 I’ve realised the value of teachers even more. They deserve all the appreciation and love we can possibly give them. Reach out to a teacher, wish them, and make them feel special today ❤️ Happy Teacher’s Day to every teacher out there, who is working on shaping minds for a better future every day. Thank you 🙏🏻 #HappyTeachersDay #Teachers #guru #gratitude #happiness #love
