Get to know how Aamir was punished at school

Perfectionist Aamir Khan was not perfect at school but today he is a superstar. Aamir in his own words described how he was punished at school and how he used to run away from studies. Kneeling down before principal’s office was a routine for him and he was also caned the whole day.

"When in school, kneeling down in front of the principal's office was a regular feature. I have also been caned a couple of times. It is strange that when you get caned, you don't realize the pain instantly, but after two seconds it shoots so badly... It's awful," Aamir said while talking about his film ‘3 Idiots’.

"I used to be more interested in sports and hence used to always forget doing my homework. Also, poor marks used to create problems for me. I used to get scolded very often," he added.

Aamir divulged that he studied till class 12 as he was more interested in dramatics. "My education has only been till 12th standard because after that I got into films. Even while in college for my 11th and 12th, I used to hardly attend classes because I was always busy with dramatics.

"Because of this, I didn't have a very rocking college life. But during the shoot of '3 idiots' I lived the moments of a student's life and enjoyed the way students do," said Aamir.

Based on Chetan Bhagat’s book ‘Five Point Someone’, ‘3 Idiots’ is slated to release on December 25.
