They have won your hearts with their adorable style and innocent charm. They can put the most professional actors to shame with their unbelievable confidence level and with the most startling dialogue delivery. They may be more popular in our country than some world leaders, but in school, they have to play the same role as everyone else – students!
Yes, we are talking about the young talented stars ruling the small screens. Be it Ichha from Uttaran or Jagdish and Anandi from Balika Vadhu, these guys have managed to score a fan following that totally belies their age.
But how do these little pixies manage when it comes to scoring in the ‘much dreaded’ phenomenon called EXAMS? Let’s have a look as TellyCafe examines their report cards…
Avika Gor (Anandi – Balika Vadhu): Score – 76%
My shoot timings are in accordance with my school schedule. So I go to school in the mornings and then report to the sets of Balika Vadhu in the afternoon, and since my school remains closed on Saturdays and Sundays, I try to finish major portions of the shoot in these two days. I also study when I get time in between my shots. I finish off with my homework during that time.
Ishita Panchal: (Tapasya – Uttaran): Score- 90%
Well, my studies are planned a day in advance and the questions which I’m supposed to study are charted out a day before. Earlier, when I was a part of a reality show, I did not have much trouble but daily soaps are a little more demanding when it comes to working hours, but, thankfully, I have been able to manage. My mom makes it a point that I don’t miss out on my studies and brings me my homework from school in case I am working and have to miss school that day.
Avinash Mukherjee (Jagdish or Jaggiya – Balika Vadhu): Score : 60 %
I have different days allotted for each subject. I make it a point to complete at least one chapter in a day. My mother is an academic professional so she helps me out with Social Studies and Science, and then I also have my tuition teacher, who helps me with the remaining subjects. I’m thankful to my school authorities, especially Chairman Dr. Augustine. F. Pinto and Managing Director, Grace Pinto, for their immense support and co- operation.
Sparsh Khanchandani (Ichha – Uttaran): Score – A +
It’s not a problem to manage my studies along with the shoots. Currently I’m doing Zara Nachke Dikha , so I have to go for the shoots on an average of one day every week. I have also managed to maintain my score pre- and post- Uttaran.
Jai Thakkar (Sethji – Laagi Tujhse Lagan): Score – 70 %
I study at home as well as on the sets. I don’t find it a problem to manage my shoots and my studies simultaneously. I love both equally and hence thoroughly enjoy them.
Jannat Ahmed (Kashi – Kashi): Score – 79%
I bring my work sheets to the sets and try to finish off with the homework between the shots. Also, I have a lot of support from the production house which arranges flexible working hours for me so I’m able to manage my studies with acting.
With the efforts these young stars put in their studies and career, it’s no wonder the kind of work ethic they develop. We wish them all the luck in all their endeavours and hope they become good role models to all the young students out there.
