10 Successful Bollywood Stars Who Never Graduated

We get that education is important, but the major problem in India is that many Indian parents push their push into unwanted fields, which is why many of us (including me) end up with engineering or medical degrees without any interest in them. While some of our beloved Bollywood celebs have completed their education in their favourite fields before starting their film journey, there are many that never graduated. It’s a surprising list, honestly.
