1. Amitabh Bachchan

The legendary actor in Indian Cinema, Amitabh Bachchan,  had no plans to become an actor in his early years and took education very seriously. He has a double major in Science and also an honorary Doctorate degree from Queensland University in Australia to his credit.

    John is an MBA from MET, Mumbai and not NMIMS

  • rukmini

    She has no Masters degree in Criminal psychology. She has no Masters.

  • VGSS Reddy

    Forget these honorary degrees and publish his actual marks sheets( Transcripts ) of his degrees in Science so that we will judge how good he was at studies. Then we can also judge the integrity of your news

    • narayanan

      Mr Reddy you are absolutely right. The honorary doctorates are of no value these days. It is conferred on indiscrimately.


      Bro getting into such college is already a gr8 task…,, so by this anyone can judge their integrity
      Max of den belong 2 the gud college

  • irfan pathan

    he is professional well manager & politician & manages each & every thing he will beg for anything & to anyone he is most besharam man n bollywood & in india, unfortunately such peoples are called ‘celebrities’ in our ‘great’ country india

    • Shashikant Sharma

      thats why they say 100 me se 90 baemaan phir bhi mera bharat mahan,

  • Avroneel Biswas

    Honorary degrees are not the evidence of his higher education

  • Rahul

    I think there are many others who should be on the list . Ameesha Patel for example.

    • Tushar

      They are talking about celebrities. Amisha is a junior artist 🙂

  • xxx

    did he really know the effort behind in a doctorate?>>>>

    • surender sharma

      It is very easy to say theoretically doctorate,practically very pain stacking.

  • Sanket

    Preity Zinta the best..

  • Anitha

    what about shekar kapur? he’s a chartered accountant, that too at the age of 22!!!!!

  • lifesuckz

    These celebs got their degrees one at a time. So the hottie who achieved all THREE of her master degrees simultaneously should top the list. But she is not even mentioned…


    When highest awards are said to have been purchased and not actually awarded by governments, how we can trust honorary degrees? Success in life is different from success in morals. Son of a politician becoming politician, son of a doctor becoming a doctor, etc are not examples to quote.

  • Sharad Pant

    Highly educated is one part of your career only but how you are as a human being, how is your behavior that’s matters lot then the higher education.

    • ala

      You are absolutely right, education is next. First will be as human being, other next.

  • M

    Oh really…M.A. is highly educated????? Ask Vidya Balan if she really deserves Padma Shri with just few years in movies and 4 hits? Can she be in the same league as Paresh Rawal and Kamal Hasan?

    • Amit

      The jury probably liked “Dirty Picture” too much and who doesn’t knows that up to what extent this boobshell can go for sarkari awards.

    • Niki

      I’m sure you must have LOTS of MAs in your pocket and have a PHD to boot to make such a ridiculous comment.

    • yogkr

      But Masters in certain subjects require real skills , and are praiseworthy efforts. One such discipline is Economics.

  • Adelai Lovelace

    Oh, my goodness! A Masters degree is good, but it is BY NO MEANS “highly educated”

    • Niki

      Considering that only 6.7 percent of the world holds college degrees and out of that 6.7 percent those with Masters Degrees holders are 3.2 percent, and PHDs are 0.5 percent, I would say that having a Masters degree is being highly educated. You must be one of those lucky people who has a whole bunch of PHDs and doctors in the family. 🙂

      • yogkr

        Nikita thukral famous Kondana Kodi girl and Big Boss finalist is also Masters in Economics, one of the most respected discipline. But She has never boasted to be so qualified. Hail!

  • cooldaddy

    Nagarjuna should be on list .He is an engineer and got MS from Eastern Michigan University

    • The discussion is abt Bollywood pal…..Better luck next time, when they announce for south indian stars.

  • Apu

    The article indicates that others not mentioned are just 12th pass, 10th pass or illiterates. Really, definition of ‘highly educated’ gets different with these no good people with airs that touch Mars.

  • awesome

    no sushant singh here??,that boy was under 10,all india rank in aieee competitive exam.thats great.

    • tatan

      unfortunately hedropped collage(DCE) in the 3rd year

  • mars

    Im Malayalam Actors, Mammooty is an Advocate, Jagtheesh was an college lecture, Late. narendra prasad had Ph.D, Mohanlal has Degree, Suresh Gopi tried for IAS, Jagathi Sreekrmar is a PG holder, Late.Sukumaran(Pritviraj’s Father) got his LLB in his final days. etc…

    • Saurabh

      could you please read the headline. They are not talking about those tolll dolly an pollywood actors with huge bellies. Keep them out of here plz

      • anonymous

        just have a look on their acting skills bro , acting is nt stripping of clothes and cracking vulgar jokes , if mohanlal is well supported truly he will become india s no1 actor

      • anonymous

        vidya balan nd john abraham are mallus 🙂 ,

    • proudtobeanindian

      @Saurabh- stop speaking like an illiterate. Do not mock the south indian industry. Idiots like you are a shame to the country.

      • Leo Prince

        We malayalees respectfully address mohanlal as “Dr. Padma Shri
        Lieutenant colonel Mohan Lal”. He has a ”
        Honorary Black Belt in Taekwondo” as well which he got in 2013… If any one wish to mock malayalam film industry, try to learn what really it is.. before giving a good try…

    • RajeevMenon

      Adding to Mars comment: Nobody has yet broke the rank of Mr.Jagadeesh in M.Com degree.

  • jyo


  • Rupesh Gujarathi

    Though Rahul Roy (Aashiqui guy) is not a celebrity anymore, but he is a CA.

  • Surabhi

    Shekhar Kapur studied economics at St. Stephen’s College. At 22, he became a Chartered Accountant.Is he not from Bollywood?

  • Ansary R

    What they said for madhavan is true.

  • Suman

  • M.A. Mukhtadar

    Acting and Politics…one need not study.

  • Vaibhav Shah

    AB just got his Doctorate from university .. he did nothing in that field.

  • guest

    Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, and Girish Karnad……..or maybe we haven’t heard about them?

  • Sarveshwar Pande

    One also has to consider Kader Khan (Retd. engineering professor), Late Amjad Khan, Baddie – Gulshan Grover (MCom)

  • DD

    Hey wt abt our politicians frm UP and Bihar

  • guessmyass

    get a life arseholes rather talking shit…just get a life…worry about were you mothafuckers are

  • Glad to know so many celebrities have preferred their education first. They are examples to those who want to run away and join Bollywood bandwagon at the expense of their studies.

  • Rederd

    Madhavan doesn’t even belong to bollywood

  • Rajesh Parmar

    Mansoor Khan the director of “Qayamat se Qayamat tak”, “Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikandar” etc. is from MIT [ Massachusetts Institute of Technology]. He studied engineering there.
    He has recently launched a book ‘The Third Curve'(Oct 2013) which talks about
    world economy. He talks about unsustainable cities and false
    understanding of money by society in his book.

  • Commentor

    Nowadays You have to have atleast PhD to call urself higjly educated, MAsters means nothing, I can give thousands of MTech Grads who are unemployed

    • Niki

      Oh please. Look at the stats. Only 6.7 percent of the WORLD has a bachelors degree and less than half of those are Masters students. A PHD (and I am a PHD student) is now days called being OVER educated. But then again, I am sure you have no idea what it entails to actually GET and be accepted to do a PHD course, because if you did, you would NEVER come up with a stupid, lazy comment like that.

  • Bibekananda

    Highly educated & education is ma fuck. There are a lot of highly educated/brilliant fellows at here but what’s their future. Look on current situation i.e., what u r & try to achieve the goal not to follow oths.

  • Vivek

    Is being a graduate engineer highly educated…? What do all the doctorates and post doctorates degrees come under? Super educated….. Its silly that there just so few highly literate guys in bollywood. LOL

  • Mithun

    John abhraham has MBA from a useless college call MET mumbai education trust, not From NMIMS….siddhart does not have his MBA from SP Jain.

  • prat

    they are just graduates or post graduates from such colleges which are either of average quality or they got admitted with donations…

    • Niki

      Neither Oxford, nor the London School of Economics (I study there) take donations. You have a very good name. You are a bit of a Prat.

      • yogkr

        There are institutes offering MSC in Economics and aome other subjects. These include IITs and BITS Pilani

  • nkmadhi

    dr. ambedkar secured about 35% marks in matriculation. mark is not important. you read his speeches n writing to understand knowledge!

    • gargee

      thats why invented quota system for below 35% marks holders…

      • Thinker

        Ms Gargee, .Better read 7 be learned and have grasp of ground realities than reducing this forum to create ill will & dissension.

  • nathan

    what about the lowest educated actors ?

  • Niki

    WOW! I had no idea that this entire comment section if full of people with so many PHDs and MAs that they are now judging an MA as not highly educated. Go fuck yourselves jealous desi morons. Only 6.7 percent of the world has a college degree, and you all act like you ALL have BTechs, MAs and PhDs. Sitting around judging others, you should be ashamed of yourselves!

    • yogkr

      One does not respect MA in any subject as praiseworthy. Shame on them! Economics and Geography now are considered as Science only and there are institutes which offer MSc in Economics and Geography including IITs and BITS

  • ala

    If a Poor child to read and got degree that matters will be best messages for world. Leave it out the celebrities got doctorate it is not a important messages to proud of country

  • Prateek Saraf

    John Abraham is not an MBA from Narsee Monjee, he has done his MBA from Mumbai Education Trust (MET).
