He has also played an intense role in his movie Brothers where he is seen doing a lot of Mixed Martial Arts. Brothers, directed by Karan Malhotra and produced by Dharma Productions, Lionsgate Films and Endemol India, showcases Akki as David, a physics teacher, who gets into street fights to arrange money for his daughter who is suffering from a fatal ailment. His character is intense, strong-headed and emotionally driven. He did complete justice to the character and stood out in the movie.

A Tribute To The Greatest Teachers In Bollywood


It’s Teacher’s Day today! A day when we recollect school days, connect with our mentors and miss the bittersweet memories with our teachers. Let’s talk about a few filmi professors! These are the brilliantly played characters that totally reminded us of our school and college days. Dharma Productions has given us several teacher-figures who left a lasting impression on our minds.

Our beloved principal Mr. Malhotra (Anupam Kher) in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai portrayed the image of a friendly and fun-loving college principal. This amicable teacher loved his students and always failed at his attempt to be strict with the spoilt brats. However, the flamboyant Ms. Briganza (Archana Puran Singh) kept the college pepped-up and entertained. She was the Miss-high-heel-and-short-skirt of the college who was admired by every boy, including Mr. Malhotra! I’m sure we’ve all had such funny and glitzy teachers in our lives.

Another kind of teacher is the guy who is strict and has a veiled concern. Dean Yogendra Vashisht (Rishi Kapoor) in Student Of The Year is the perfect example of that. He will scold you, challenge you, warn you, shout at you, but he means well. That is why when he falls sick and lies on his death bed, all his students come running for a glimpse of him. Dean was someone who prepared his students for the competitive world. Haven’t our school and college teachers always strived to do that for us?

Some other inspirational teachers from Dharma movies include David (Akshay Kumar), a physics teacher, in Brothers and Coach Shah (Ronit Roy), a sports teacher, in Student Of The Year. These characters were brought to life by amazing actors and a great storyline. They are reel-life teachers who made us miss our real-life teachers.

Celebrating 69 years of Independence Dharma style

The Indian Independence Day is celebrated throughout the country on 15th August every year with great splendor, joy and respect for our country. There are a number of cultural programmes that are organized on this day, and children love to watch and participate in such events. Independence Day is dedicated to all those brave leaders and freedom fighters who fought relentlessly for their nation’s freedom. 

Independence Day is a very patriotic day for every Indian citizen. It tells us that no matter which country you go to or where you stay, you will always have Indian blood running through your veins. It teaches us never to forget the soil we were born on. A great example is from the film ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’, where the vibrant Anjali (Kajol) keeps on urging the family to sing the National Anthem even though they are staying in another country. She believes that even though they are in a different country, they should never forget the rich heritage they are born in, and that they should be proud of it.

So, why don’t we all do our bit by respecting what this lovely nation has given us. Jai Hind!
