April 15, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor is recently in the news for his upcoming movie Paathshaala, which he has been promoting and also for that new beard he is sporting for one of his next project Mausam. Paathshaala which deals with the educational system and stars Ayesha Takia as the female lead is to hit the theatres on 16th April.
But it seems the plot of this school-based-movie and the proximity with so many kids inspired Shahid to visit his own school and evoke childhood memories.
The chocolate boy was welcomed to his school Gyan Bharati, New Delhi this Wednesday and the kids thronged him the moment he entered. Shahid was greeted by his Primary teachers on stage who spoke of his days as a kid revealing that Shahid had always been a shy kid. Getting nostalgic after his trip down the memory lane Shahid says, “I am overwhelmed to be back in my own school where I started my education. I studied here till fourth standard. I have so many memories to cherish about this place. As a kid, I was always late for school and my grandfather had to urge the guard to let me in. I remember playing in the sand with my friends.” Shahid himself looked like a child while recounting his early days as a student. He remembered walking a distance of 7-8 minutes from home to his school which was close to his old home. Shahid even visited the classroom in which he spent some of the loveliest days of his life.
