Like every year, this year too Bollywood celebrities have special messages for their teachers on the occasion of Teachers’ Day. The day is celebrated to mark the birth anniversary of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, a scholar, Bharat Ratna recipient, and the first Vice President and second President of independent India, who was born on September 5, 1888.

On this day, which is dedicated to teachers, Ajay Devgn expressed his gratitude to the camera, that has taught him something or the other every time he is behind it. “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 🙏 #HappyTeachersDay2020,” the Singham actor shared on social media.

Manoj Bajpayee also wrote a special note for all his teachers. “I bow down in front of all my teachers who taught me not only the words numbers and books but also gave a wisdom to love each and every human and the Mother Earth!! happy teachers day!!!” the actor wrote on Twitter.

For actor Sonu Sood, his mother was also his teacher. He shared a photo of his mother on social media and expressed gratitude towards her.

Talking about her teachers, Sophie Choudhry shared, “The teacher I was closest to was called Ms.Last. She was my class teacher and head of philosophy in school. She was forever encouraging, in a way I think I was her favourite. She trusted me with important responsibilities, pushed me to excel, always showed belief in me. I think the most special thing for me was when I went back years later and the teachers took me to all the classes, introduced me to all the new students and the staff room where I could now sit and have a cup of coffee with my teachers. I’m forever grateful to all my teachers at all my schools in London and Paris who shaped me into the person I am.”

Here’s how other celebrities have wished their teachers on this Teachers’ Day.

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

In recreating Life you learn much about Life.. And no better teacher than the movies .. have spent more than half my life in the movies – a model, an actor, a writer, a producer and now a director .. You see the world as YOU are NOT as it is .. Movies are my very life. The recent slander of the Hindi movie business as a place of manipulation, drugs, sleaze and hate really tortured me .. it takes away from the toil of lakhs of people who work 17-18 hours a day as light boys, grips, camera assistants, sound recordists, choreographers, dancers, music composers, singers, assistant directors, actors, makeup and hair stylists, costume designers, editors and their teams that make our lives better with stories that have shaped our culture so enormously .. Here’s to the Movies!! #StoriesAndStorytellers #ArtReflectsUs #CinephileForever #BollyRocks #HappyTeachersDay
