shah rukh khan, vidya balan, teachers day

September 5 marks Teachers Day all over the world, a day where we appreciate and celebrate the people who taught us to be who we are. But teaching doesn’t always comes only from a school teacher or a professor. Any one can turn out to be a mentor just by some advice or leading by example.

Sometimes these inspirations can come on screen too. From Shah Rukh Khan in Chak De India to Aamir Khan in Dangal, there have been many inspiring mentors on screen. And as we celebrate Teachers Day, here’s acknowledging such reel mentors.

Celebrating 7 reel mentors on Teachers Day:

Amitabh Bachchan in Black

A man dealing with his own issues showed a blind girl how to enjoy the beauty of the world through her soul. That is what Big B’s character in Black was about. The megastar delivered such an impeccable performance that it even earned him a National Award. It showed that you just need that one person who believes in you even when the world has given up on you.

Shah Rukh Khan in Chak De India and Dear Zindagi

Not once, but SRK has given inspiring characters multiple times throughout his career. But the two that stand out are Kabir Khan in Chak De India and Dr Jehangir in Dear Zindagi. The former taught us how to lead life in the most adverse situations and turn it around with your dedication and hard work. Whereas the latter taught how to live life to the fullest and deal with our problems head on rather than hiding from them.

Aamir Khan in Dangal

Aamir took a big risk when he portrayed the character of Mahavir Singh Phogat. The role was mentally and physically challenging. But above all, it was inspiring. It showed that you don’t need world-class facilities at your disposal to achieve greatness. And the society need not define who can do what. Grit and determination is what takes you ahead and Aamir portrayed that beautifully.

Akshay Kumar in Mission Mangal

Anything big cannot be achieved by someone alone. You need a whole team to reach your goal and to gather that team takes a lot of hard work. That is what Akshay Kumar did in Mission Mangal. He taught that sometimes you just have to nudge people in the right direction for them to achieve their full potential. An inspiring character and portrayal indeed.

Vidya Balan in Shakuntala Devi

While most of the world hates and laments Mathematics, Vidya as Shakuntala Devi showed how fun it could be. The actress surely made us all fall in love with numbers and her chirpy persona just added to the appeal.

Huma Qureshi in Tarla

When it comes to women, sadly even today cooking is considered their duty. But the inspiring story of Tarla Dalal showed that it need not be confined to the idea that the world has. The much-loved home cook took the level of home cooking to another level, and Huma Qureshi brought that out perfectly with her lovable portrayal in Tarla.

Abhishek Bachchan in Ghoomer

Sometimes helping someone else deal with their adversity, can help you face your demons too. That’s what Abhishek’s portrayal in Ghoomer is all about. In the recently released film, the actor gave an impressive performance. He showed that there is still a ray of hope when everything seems lost.
